Canon wireless printers are available for purchase at a wide range of stores, including Staples and Best Buy. Interested customers can also buy Canon printers, including printers capable of wireless operation, directly from the company's website.
Wireless Canon printers let users print directly from a laptop computer, tablet or smartphone without connecting the device to the printer. Printers with Google cloud capability let users send print jobs to the printer via the Internet from offsite locations. Some printer models come with AirPrint capability, which lets users transfer print jobs directly from an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to the printer without installing additional drivers. Specific Canon products that offer wireless capability include printers in the PIXMA MG, PIXMA MP and MAXIFY printer series.
To utilize the wireless function on a Canon wireless printer, a user must have a working Ethernet connection connected to a Wi-Fi router. Both the Canon printer and the computer or device storing the document to be printed must be connected via the same wireless network. Detailed instructions for adding a new Canon printer to an existing network, tips for re-establishing a connection and drivers for each printer the company sells are available on the manufacturer's website.
