How to Connect a Canon Printer to WiFi Without Cable? Is this a question that you've been reconsidering? Well, you may undoubtedly accomplish this without having to go through a challenging procedure.
Step 1: As long as both your computer/device and printer are linked to the same WiFi network, you should be able to connect your printer to your WiFi network and print effortlessly.
Step 2: Printers have advanced significantly in recent years, and many now use infrared or Bluetooth for connectivity, while others include Ethernet ports and built-in wireless adapters.
Step 3: Simply turn on the printer and scroll through the interface to see if WiFi is on or disabled.
Step 4: Next, choose a wireless network, provide a password if necessary, and the printer will automatically obtain an IP address from the network.
Step 5: However, not every printer will allow you to select a specific network or enter a password.
Step 6: There might be setup software, which means you'll have to run it to find the network and then finish setting it up.
Step 7: If your printer has an Ethernet port, you may easily connect it to your wireless switch or router. This will assist you in connecting your device to your WiFi network.
Step 8: When you try to set up your printer on the computer, it will detect it and prompt you to install the necessary drivers.
Your printer can also be added as a local printer (USB). When prompted for a port on a Windows computer, select TCP/IP to enter the printer's IP address.
Let's say your printer just has a USB port, and you want to connect to WiFi without using a cable. For Mac computers, AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme, or AirPort Time Capsule can connect to the printer and share it across the WiFi network. A few NAS (network-attached storage) systems also include printer sharing capabilities.
