Some access points (often called routers or hubs) feature an automatic connection button labelled “WPS” which stands for Wi-Fi Protected Setup and allows permitted devices to connect to your network without needing to enter a password. This is the easiest way of connecting your PIXMA printer, so if your access point has a WPS button please select ‘WPS Connection Method’ below for instructions on connecting using this method.
If your access point does not support WPS, please select 'Standard Connection Method' below.
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 in the Standard Connection Method.
Your network must be using the WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) or WPA2 security protocol. Most WPS enabled access points use this protocol.
If another screen appears, please refer to “troubleshooting” in the user guide.
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:
When referring to the printout, check that the “Connection” indicates “Active” and that the SSID -Service Set Identifier (or 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 PIXMA MX495.
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.
This concludes the Wi-Fi setup procedure. Please now install the provided software.
If you need to reset your network settings back to factory default, for example if you change your access point, you can do so by following these instructions:
The wireless network settings have been reset back to factory default settings.
Press the [Copy] button to return to the home screen.
If this process is still failing after following this guide, please contact us for further assistance.
