Excellent all in one printer served me well for almost 5 years and still going strong. Problem is never been able to connect wifi despite that working fine on all other devices. Lost original instruction manual. Have contacted Canon but very slow to respond. Need to print from android tablet whilst laptop undergoing maintenance. Any advice please?

Instructions here for Installing your printer on the Network

I would then download the Canon Easy Photo Print App on to your tablet.

Been having a bit of trouble with wifi printing on my Pixma too (MG6150) .

This worked for me. You don't need the software.

Go to Control Panel, Printers and Devices and uninstall all versions of the Pixma series.

Then go to Control Panel, Uninstall Progremmes and remove all Canon programmes. Make sure you get all of them.

Restart. Run CClenaer or similar to clean up the Registry.

Make sure the printer is on. Go to Start, Devices and printers and Install network printer. Do NOT use any Canon software!

The computer should "see" the Pixma. Select and install.

Worked for me!
