PIXMA MG3550 Wireless Connection Setup
Find instructions on how to setup the wireless connection on your PIXMA MG3550 printer and also how to reset the printer
to factory settings.
Some access points (sometimes referred to as routers or hubs) feature an automatic connection button labelled “WPS”
which stands for WiFi Protected Setup.
This allows permitted devices such as your PIXMA MG3550 to connect to your network without needing to enter a password
and it enables a quick and easy method of connecting your devices.
This method is by far the easiest way of connecting your PIXMA MG3550, so if your access point has a WPS button please
select the ‘WPS Connection Method’ tab below for instructions on connecting using this method.
If your router does not support WPS we have provided alternative instructions to get your PIXMA MG3550 connected so
please select the 'Standard Connection Method' tab below
WPS Connection Method
Before we start, there are some conditions that must be met in order to use the WPS push button method:
The access point must have a physical WPS push button available.
Please check with your device’s user guide for details.
If the WPS push button is not available please use the instructions on the Standard Connection Method tab.
Your network must be using the WPA (WiFi Protected Access) or WPA2 security protocol. Most WPS enabled access
points use this protocol.
Make sure that the printer is turned on.
Press & hold the [WiFi] button
on the top of the printer until the alarm lamp flashes once.
Make sure that the lamp next to this button starts to flash blue and then go to your access point and press the [WPS] button
within 2 minutes.
For exact details on starting WPS on your access point, please refer to its user guide.
The (blue) WiFi lamp on the printer will continue ﬂashing while searching, and the power and WiFi lamp will flash when
connecting to the access point.
When the printer has successfully made a connection to your wireless network, the power and WiFi lamp will stop flashing
and remain lit.
Network settings confirmation
To confirm that your printer is successfully connected to your wireless network, you can print out the network settings of
your printer if you wish:
1. Make sure that your printer is turned on.
2. Load a sheet of A4 or lettersized plain paper.
