Unlike latest Microsoft Windows operating system versions, Windows XP doesn’t detect Bluetooth and wireless printers automatically within the range of your computer. To install and setup a wireless printer to the Windows XP, you need to get the URL of the Wi-Fi device or the IP address, and then you can use the Add Printer Wizard to notify the operating system about the printer’s location. Once it identifies where to locate the device on the local area network of your organization, it can connect your printer to the network.
If you’re getting difficulties in setting up your Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer on the Windows XP Toshiba laptop, then the following guide will allow you to connect your laptop to your Canon printer wirelessly. Here’s how to connect:
- First of all, print a settings page or browse the network configurations via the control panel of your PIXMA printer to get the device’s IP address.
- Click the ‘Start’ button, select ‘Printers and Faxes,’ followed by the ‘Add a Printer’ option via the Printer Tasks in the left window.
- Click the ‘Next’ button on the ‘Welcome to the Add Printer Wizard’ window. Choose ‘A Network Printer’ or ‘a Printer Attached to Another Computer’ option, click ‘Next.’
- Select the ‘Connect to a Printer on the Internet’ or ‘Connect to a Printer on a Home or Office Network’ from the options list.
- Input the IP address of your PIXMA MP620 printer into the URL address bar, and then click the ‘Next’ button.
- Choose the Canon from the left window, followed by the Canon PIXMA MP600 from the list of printers, and then click ‘OK.’
- Select if you want to set up the printer as the default, and then click ‘Next,’ followed by the ‘Finish’ to complete the installation.
You can also set up the other models of your printer by following this procedure, other than it may be slightly or significantly different, so you should consult the manual instructions for the device-specific process. However, if you still have the configuration issues, then you can contact the Canon Customer care for seeking out the resolution.
