An "Ad-hoc connection," which establishes a direct
connection to the computer over a wireless connection
without using an access point, is not supported.
Notes on Network Connection
• The configuration, router functions, setup procedures and security settings of
the network device vary depending on your system environment. For details,
refer to your device's instruction manual or contact its manufacturer.
• In an office setup, consult your network administrator
• If you connect to a network that is not protected with security measures, there
is a risk of disclosing data such as your personal information to a third party.
• If an error message appears or if you have trouble with the network
connection, refer to the printed manual: Network Setup Troubleshooting.
• Place the machine and computer on the same network segment.

Software Installation
To use the machine by connecting it to a computer, software including the drivers needs to be copied (installed) to the computer's hard disk. The
installation process takes about 20 minutes. (The installation time varies depending on the computer environment or the number of application
software to be installed.)
IMPORTANT
• Log on as the administrator (or a member of the Administrators group).
• Quit all running applications before installation.
• Do not switch users during the installation process.
• Internet connection may be required during the installation. Connection fees may apply. Consult the internet service provider.
• It may be necessary to restart your computer during the installation process. Follow the on-screen instructions and do not remove the
Setup CD-ROM during restarting. The installation resumes once your computer has restarted.
• If the firewall function of your security software is turned on, a warning message may appear that Canon software is attempting to access
the network. If such a warning message appears, set the security software to always allow access.
