Canon Pixma MP990 Wireless Setup & IJ Setup

In order to establish a wireless connection between the Canon Printer and other external devices, it is necessary to create the right configuration. This cannot be neglected, but first, you need to learn about the hub. It is known as an access point. The Certain access point is programmed with an automatic connection that is called WPS. It lets the compatible devices (Conon Printer) to connect into the network. By using WPS, it means that there is no need to input a password to connect your printer into the network. This is the simplest method because you only need to turn on the Wi-Fi and then select the available network connection. Therefore, please select the WPS connection if the hub that you use has this option. However, there are several requirements in order to use the WPS push button:

  • First, you need to check the hub manual book. You need to know whether the hub supports the WPS button or not. If it does not, you cannot follow this push button guide.
  • Check the available network that is about to be used. It has to be WPA or it could be WPA2. This protocol is available in most of the hubs in the market.

After you get information about the availability of WPA or WPA2 in your access, you can start to set the following wireless configuration:

  • Turn on the Canon PIXMA TS3122 printer
  • Press the Wireless button and hold it. Do not release the button until you see the indicator light gives a signal. It will blink once.
  • Near the Wireless button, there is an indicator lamp. When the lamp shows blue light, you need to hold the WPS button on the access point for 2 minutes.
  • After that, you will notice that the Wireless indicator lamp will keep blinking. It means that the printer is trying to find the available network nearby.
  • Wait until the power and Wireless indicator lamp blink at the same time. During this process, the printer has already found the access point and it tries to establish a network connection.
  • If the printer has been connected to the available network, the wireless and power indicator lamp will no longer be giving the signal. It will stop to blink.

This guide only works with hubs or router that supports WPS protocol. If you are not able to establish a wireless connection using this guide, there are several factors that prevent it. First, the type of access point. Second, the routers or hubs that you use need custom configuration before it is ready to be utilized as a WPS access point. The last factor, there is no enough signal, so the printer cannot detect or connect to the network. It is important to check the speed of the network as well.    Well, if you follow the guide correctly, your Canon PIXMA TS3122 printer can be used immediately. However, it is necessary to test the printer whether is already connected or not.
