New printer models provide multi-connection service. Now the user can easily connect his printer to the system. You can use the printer with various devices. Users can connect the printer either using the cable or Wi-Fi. When you need to take the printout from a distance where you can’t use the cable, go for Wi-Fi installation. It helps the user to take the printout easily.
Connecting printer to PC with a Wi-Fi installation
For connecting the printer to Wi-Fi; you should check certain features. Go and check the access point (router) for a WPS pin. When you see the physical WPS pin then select the WPS method for connecting the printer. Users can connect the printer to the network like other devices. But your printer must support the Wi-Fi connection method.
Once the printer is connected; you have to check for the network as sometimes the printer gets connected to another network. Users can print the configuration page by pressing the Resume button of the printer until the lamp flashes around fifteen times. Now the printer will give you the printout of your configuration. Take the printout and check the SSID and status. If the connection is correct then you can take the printouts easily.
Installing the printer driver on your systems
After connecting the printer to the network; the user should check for the systems. For taking the printouts; you will require the printer driver. Check the devices which are on the same network. Now install the driver for the printer on all devices from which you want to take the printouts. In devices with disc drives, use the CD for driver installation. On other devices, open the browser and search for the printer driver. After driver installation; the Canon mg3600 setup wifi is complete. Now you have to load the pages on your printer and then take your printouts. Now go to a connected device and open a document. Hit the ctrl + P keys and check for the available printer devices. Tap on your printer’s name and now check the printer for printout.
Manual Printer Wi-Fi connection using the standard method
When a user can’t opt for a WPS connection as the WPS pin is not available on all routers; go for the standard connection method. With this method, you can connect your printer to the network easily but you will require a PC. The user has to configure the printer to the network with a device that is connected to the same network. After connecting your PC to the network; copy the driver setup.
On the computer; tap the Next button
You will get the SSID and printer name on the screen
While using the printer for the first time, hit the Execute button and follow on-screen instructions. Select the Exit button once the printer gets configured. Now the user can take the printouts easily from the newly connected device. After connection; keep the printer and network password secured. Using the password on the printer ensures that only authenticated users can access your device.
