WPS Connection Method

WPS Connection Method

In WPS Connection Method, Before we start, there are some conditions that must be met in order to use the WPS push button method:

  • The access point must have a physical WPS push button available. Please check with your device’s user guide for details. If the WPS push button is not available please use the instructions on the Standard Connection Method tab.
  • Your network must be using the WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) or WPA2 security protocol. Most WPS enabled access points use this protocol.

Step 1

1. Make sure that the printer is turned on.

2. Press and hold the [Wi-FiWPS Connection Method] button on the front of the printer until the white power lamp flashes once, and then release it.

Step 2

1. Make sure that this button starts to flash blue and then go to your access point and press the [WPS] button within 2 minutes.
For exact details regarding pressing the WPS button, please refer to the access point manual.

The blue Wi-Fi lamp on the printer will continue to flash while searching for, or connecting to the access point. When the printer has successfully made a connection to your wireless network, the blue lamp will stop flashing and remain lit.

To confirm that your printer is successfully connected to your wireless network, you can print out the network settings of your printer if you wish:

1. Make sure that your printer is turned on.

2. Load a sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper.

3. Press and hold the [Resume/Cancel[MASTER] Picture_PIXMA Wireless Connection tab 1-2] button until the white power lamp flashes 6 times and then release it. The network information page will be printed.
When referring to the printout, check that the “Connection” indicates “Active” and that the SSID -Service Set Identifier (the name of your wireless network) indicates the correct name of your wireless network.

This concludes the WPS setup procedure.

Please now proceed by installing the software to make the most out of your Canon printer.

If you do not have the installation CD that came with your product, please download the manuals and software.

If the wireless setup is still failing after following this guide, please contact us for further assistance.
