Guide to Canon Pixma mg2900 Wireless Printer Setup
This printer caused a lot of pain and frustration to many individuals. It turns out to be fairly simple to set it up, it’s just that there’s really no documentation anywhere.
So, one helpful user lastly shared the measures after several customers were able to effectively set up their Canon MX2920 printer after calling for Canon assistance. Here are the steps: First, we need to connect your printer to the web.
You would normally do this by downloading to your Windows or Mac computer some setup software, but obviously we can’t do that. We’re going to have to use the WPS technique:
