Canon Printer Drivers


T

Tinkerer

I have been trying to help someone connect a Compaq Windows 7 (64 bit)
laptop to a Canon Pixma ip4500 printer which attached to a Win XP PC, via
their wifi LAN. The printer is shared correctly and the laptop sees it but
when trying to install comes up with the message that a driver is not
present. However, according to the Canon web site, the driver for this
printer is already in the operating system.

We plugged the printer directly into the laptop and, sure enough, it
installed immediately, so the driver is indeed in Windows 7.

How can we make it use the driver when installing it as a network printer?

Install the above driver and specify you're installing a network printer.

Install the above driver and specify you're installing a network printer.
Just to be explicit:

My Pixma MX850 (different model) requires its initial driver
installation to be done while it is connected to the computer by USB.
Then you can make it work on the LAN (this printer requires a wired LAN
connection).

It's been too long, so I am very vague on any details.

Thanks for that. In fact we did tyr that. It installed fine with a usb
connection but still claimed that there was no driver when we attempted the
network set up. I am hopeful that Relic's printer driver might do the
trick. Thanks again.

Thanks for that, we could not find the specific driver, just stacks of
related software (presumably the original suite). I will forward this on
to him and see what happens. Unfortunately we live 50 odd miles apart and
I am back home now so cannot get hands on. Many thanks.

Any time... good luck.

Hi Tinkerer! :)

I heard that you had not been too well recently.

How are you, now?

I think there must be more than one Tinkerer around 'cos I haven't had any
ailments (other than the usual things that come with age) for many a long
year. I am in Surrey, England if that helps to differentiate.

OK. Your approach seems to match my vague memory, so it looks like I
can't offer any useful help. Sorry.

Actually I might have found the problem. I discovered a list of Win 7
drivers on the Canon site and it lists the facilities available for each
driver. For this particular printer the network function has not been made
available in the upgrade.

Sorry about that! The guy I'd 'met' before using that name was, I'm
sure, an American - posting on a group called User2User at Annexcafe.

Have you ever heard of it, btw? http://www.annexcafe.com/

I'm sure I would have never, ever, come across it either if someone
(called Kuay Tim) had not emailed me from 'out-of-the-blue' coercing me
to go there! I went simply out of curiosity - and there met 'Peter
Foldes' in-the-flesh so to speak! Oh yes! Tinkerer too! ;-)

Pleased to meet *you* anyway!

Cheers

That's a bummer. Sorry to hear it.
