This was VERY helpful Mr. ITJungles. Without your showing this, I would have been lost and my printer would not have functioned as well. The instructions sent with the printer are crap when it comes to anything other than plugging physical items in.

Jane Lockett I STILL can't get it to print, wirelessly. I tried, EVERYTHING. I even, updated the firmware. I'll stick to wired. Idk This is the ONLY wireless device, which I can't get to work, wirelessly.

This printer model is a headache to connect its content, I bought it recently and I wanted to use the scanner but comes with no booklet how to use it, instead instructions tells you to go online. I spent almost all day trying to understand and goes on and on with more instructions and shows up same thing again and again. I will try out once again and discard it on the trash, pity I spent almost $ 50 in a ink. This printer I bought in Amazon for almost the same price of the inks.

Thanks! So easy with this video. Get Canon to hire you! After connecting successfully I still got an error "cannot find printer" after installing the drivers as someone mentioned below it then worked.

Jennifer Jacobs I'm having THAT problem, so how to install the drivers?

Hopefully you are still around to answer any questions I just wanted to know if once you do this process, when you turn it on/off when not in use, does the printer automatically connect to the Wifi network? Or do I have to do this process every time I turn my printer back on? If anyone knows that would be so helpful, thank you!

what do you do when you’re printer keeps telling you connection fail? how do you fix that? thanks!
Linda Leung (4 months ago)
Thank you so much! I have two Canon PIXMA printers and they failed me often times over the past few years of use. The chances of having them working is by luck. I read numerous articles and learned to set a static IP for each and to set up a TCP/IP port to print in order to avoid disconnectivity due to router/Wifi problem. But nothing helps me like your video to get the printers CONNECTED to the network. They are just always offline. I "ping" their IP address in the command prompt and can never reach them. Now it works!! Thanks for sharing!!
Perfect! Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Where can i find the serial # on the canon mx490?
Timothy Peterson (7 months ago)
It's on the back of the printer. A little white sticker with a bar code, as well as the serial number. On my MX492 I had to use a magnifying glass to read it. Happy hunting!!!!
cwah2012 (8 months ago)
I have tried to find multiple tutorials and how to videos to forget network or get to where i can enter my password for wireless network.

Stunning style to get a easy job done 1 2 3. You made this process clear, easy, and correct. The instruction that came with my printer had me in tears. Canons 4 set up ( how too's) are worthless as are all the other videos I viewed on this subject. Why did I have to come by this video only after hours of futale head numbing, confusing, others is beond me. 1.25Mil viewers are better people because of you. BRAVO.
