Setting up a Wireless LAN connection
Initially, you have to configure the machine’s LAN setting. You can do this by using the Easy-Scroll Wheel on the printer to select ‘Settings’ and then pressing the 'OK' button. Select ‘Device Settings’ and press 'OK'. After this step, select the ‘LAN settings’ option that is displayed and confirm the action by pressing the 'OK' button. Then select ‘Change wireless/wired’ and press 'OK'. In the final step of the first stage, select the 'Wireless connection' and press 'OK'. Now on the Canon IJ Network Tool screen, select ‘LAN connection’ and click 'OK'. If the Setup Preparations dialog box appears, confirm that preparation is complete. Select ‘Setup’ in the pop-up menu, select ‘MP620 series’ in ‘Printers’ and click 'OK'. You are now ready to use your printer over a wireless connection.
Issues found in the setting up of the wireless connection
A common issue that may be encountered while setting up the printer is that the application software does not work properly. If this occurs, it may not be possible to properly establish the wireless connection. Another issue that can crop up is that the printer may not be detected with certain wireless routers like the Linksys WRT54G2 wireless router. In certain cases, the printer works fine with a wireless connection for some time, but may show up as offline after the computer is rebooted. In this case, it is advised to right click on the 'MP620 printer' in the 'Printer control panel' and make sure that the ‘Use printer offline’ option is not selected.
In the event that the application software does not work properly, it is recommended to uninstall the 'Canon driver and application' software. Scan the whole system for viruses, malware, and spyware, as these can affect the performance significantly. Next, scan the system for unnecessary drivers and applications. Make sure that you clean the registry as well. In order to solve problems related to non-detection of the device with certain wireless routers, a number of easy steps can be followed. First, make sure the printer works when connected via USB. Next, go to the 'Printer settings' and reset 'All network settings'. After this is done, you can reinstall the most essential drivers, MP drivers, and the Canon IJ Network tool.
