Wireless Setup

Print and scan wirelessly directly from any computer that supports Wi-Fi from your local network connection. Wireless printing requires a network that functions with 802.11b/g/n wireless capabilities. You will need a computer that supports Wi-Fi, a wireless router, and a wireless printer. All three devices must be connected to the same wireless network connection.

Fantastic Multifunction Printer

Canon PIXMA MX42 is a great printer. Everything came out great but the only problem I got was that the colors look a little faded which is good because the printer ink is expensive. Photocopiers work with very professional quality. You will not be able to find out the origin of the copy unless you sign it. For Fax, if you only have one telephone line and use this as your fax line, Canon understands that and will not interfere with your channel or ring. Fax is clean and you can hear incoming faxes if you choose.
