Setting up a wireless Canon printer for your home or business can do wonders. With the introduction of wireless printers, you can connect your Canon Pixma printer to a Wi-Fi connection to use it wirelessly. This way you can print documents and images directly from your mobile device with ease. You don’t even have to be in the same physical location as the printer itself; it’s that easy. On top of that, setting up a Wi-Fi Canon Pixma printer will allow you to configure all on-page functionality, making it easier than ever before to capture what you want out of this technology.
You can try the following methods to connect the Canon Pixma printer to Wi-Fi:
