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.

Easy Setup, Great Printouts

PIXMA TR8520 is a small printer that can do everything from printing, copying, scanning, and sending faxes.
The large 4.3-inch screen makes it easy to read and control. The actual print is quite good for a cheap multifunction.

Print perfectly from iPhone, iPad, MacBook, and iMac with exceptional print quality. I like the two-sided printing feature. Ink cartridge maintenance is easy and to connect is also quite easy.
