Today, the Canon TS3122 printer has become the leading choice of almost everyone, owing to its excellent precision and top-notch print quality. These printers are competent to meet your wireless printing needs at home and office.
If your wireless LAN router/access point has a WPS button, you can easily connect to your network without needing to enter a password. This is the easiest way of connecting your PIXMA printer, so if your access point has a WPS button please select ‘WPS Connection Method’ below for instructions on connecting using this method.

- Press the [Colour] button, and make sure that the ON lamp (E) and the Wireless lamp flash, then press the [WPS] button on the wireless router within 2 minutes. The blue Wi-Fi lamp on the printer will continue to ﬂash while searching, and the Power and Wi-Fi lamps will flash when connecting to the access point.
- When the printer has successfully made a connection to your wireless network, the Power and Wi-Fi lamps will stop flashing and remain lit. The network lamp will also light up.
Step 2: Network Settings Confirmation
