Re: mp 495 how to connect to wireless without setup cd

Hi juliejulie,

 

You can download and install the drivers for the printer from the Canon USA website to install the printer wirelessly.  To do this, please follow the steps below:

 

1.  Press the Maintenance button (looks like a pair of pliers and a screwdriver) on the printer repeatedly until the symbol that looks like "G" appears in the LCD, then press the <COLOR> button to enable the wireless LAN function of the printer.

2.  Once the wireless LAN has been enabled, we will want to download the drivers from the Canon USA website.  The following link will take you to the initial download page for your PIXMA MP495:

PIXMA MP495 Drivers and Software page

Once on the initial download page for your model, please do the following:

1.  Verify that the operating system detected in the "OPERATING SYSTEM" drop-down menu is correct, and if it is not, please click the drop-down menu to select your operating system. 

2.  Next, please click on the red arrow next to the "DRIVERS" section and click the MP DRIVERS file.  When you do, another page will appear giving details of the file you are about to download will appear.  

3.  Please scroll down on the Details page and agree to the terms of the disclaimer message to continue with the download process by clicking on the "I AGREE - BEGIN DOWNLOAD" button.  After clicking the "I AGREE - BEGIN DOWNLOAD" button, follow the instructions to download and install the driver.  The time for the download process may vary depending on the speed of your Internet connection and the size of the file being downloaded.  Please be sure to have the USB cable unplugged from the computer prior to installing the drivers; the installation program will prompt you to plug it in at the appropriate time.

Once the drivers are downloaded and installed, please restart your computer, and you should be all set to print.

 

Hope this helps!

Fantastic!

Believe it or not, I've tried downloading the drivers about a twenty times, and I'm not sure of this, but I believe I had the USB cord plugged in every time. I guess that prevented the download from working.

Thanks for your help!

Hi ljgmdg33!

 

Unfortunately, the PiXMA MP495 is not supported with the Amazon Kindle HD.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  Use the following link to check out Kindle compatible products:
