Before Using the Camera
Radio Wave Precautions
• This product incorporates an approved WLAN module. The model
number is PC1735 in the case of IXUS 510 HS , and PC1739 in the case
of IXUS 240 HS (including WLAN module model WM217).
• Doing any of the following may incur legal penalties:
- Altering or modifying the product
- Removing the certification labels from the product
• According to foreign exchange and foreign trade law regulations, export
permission (or service transaction permission) from the Japanese
government is necessary to export strategic resources or services
(including this product) outside Japan.
• Because this product includes American encryption software, it falls
under U.S. Export Administration Regulations, and cannot be exported to
or brought into a country under U.S. trade embargo.
Radio Wave Interference Precautions
• This product may receive interference from other devices that emit radio
waves. To avoid interference, be sure to use this product as far away as
possible from such devices, or avoid using the devices at the same time
as this product.
Wireless LAN Precautions
• Be sure to make notes of the wireless LAN settings you use.
The wireless LAN settings saved to this product may be erased due to
incorrect operation of the product, the effects of radio waves or static
electricity, accident or malfunction. Be sure to make notes of wireless
LAN settings as a precaution. Please note that Canon accepts no
responsibility for degradation of content, direct or indirect damages or
loss of revenue arising from use of the product.
• When transferring this product to another person, disposing of it, or
sending it for repair, be sure to note the wireless LAN settings and reset
the product to its default settings (erase settings) if necessary.
• Canon will not make compensation for loss or theft of the product.
Canon accepts no responsibility for damages incurred due to
unauthorized access to registered data (image transfer destinations, etc.)
if the product is lost or stolen.
w-6
• Be sure to use the product as directed in this guide.
Be sure to use the wireless LAN function of this product within the
guidelines noted in this guide. Canon accepts no responsibility for
damages or loss even if the function and product are used in ways other
than as described in this guide.
• Do not use the wireless LAN function of this product near medical
equipment or other electronic equipment.
Use of the wireless LAN function near medical equipment or other
electronic equipment may affect operation of those devices.
Security Precautions
Since wireless LAN uses radio waves to transmit signals, tighter security
precautions are necessary than when using a LAN cable.
When using wireless LAN, keep the following points in mind.
• Only use networks you are authorized to use.
This product searches for wireless LAN networks in the vicinity and
displays the results on the screen. Networks you are not authorized to
use (unknown networks) may also be displayed. However, connecting to
or attempting to use those networks could be regarded as unauthorized
access. Be sure to use only networks you are authorized to use, and do
not attempt to connect to other unknown networks.
If security settings have not been properly set, the following problems may
occur.
• Transmission monitoring
Third parties with malicious intent may monitor wireless LAN
transmissions and attempt to acquire the data you are sending.
• Unauthorized network access
Third parties with malicious intent may gain unauthorized access to
the network you are using and steal, modify, or destroy information.
Additionally, you could fall victim to other types of unauthorized access
such as impersonation (where someone assumes an identity to gain
access to unauthorized information) and springboard attacks (where
someone gains unauthorized access to your network as a springboard to
cover their tracks when infiltrating other systems).
w-7
To prevent these types of problems from occurring, be sure to thoroughly
secure your wireless LAN network.
Be sure to use the wireless LAN function of this camera with a proper
understanding of wireless LAN security, and balance risk and convenience
when adjusting security settings.

Sending Images
This chapter explains how to use the camera to
send images wirelessly to destinations saved in the
camera.
• When the destination you want to send images to is a social networking
service or e-mail, sent images will be saved to CANON iMAGE GATEWAY
and a link to the album containing the images will be added to the social
networking service or e-mail. When the destination is YouTube, the sent
movie will be uploaded directly to YouTube.
• You can send up to 50 images together with one send operation. You can
send movies together as long as the total recording time is within 2 minutes.
However, if the destination is a Web service, the number of movies and
images that can be sent may be less depending on the Web service. See the
desired Web service for details.
• Depending on the condition of the network you are using, it may take a long
time to send movies. Be sure to keep an eye on the camera battery level.
• When connected to a computer, images are transferred using the computer
(included software CameraWindow) instead of the camera (p. w-37).

The camera’s SSID (network name) is not displayed when you try to
connect to a smartphone.
• You are attempting to connect using infrastructure mode. Select ad hoc mode and try
again (p. w-20).
• Check to make sure your smartphone supports ad hoc mode. If your smartphone
does not support ad hoc mode, connect using infrastructure mode.
Cannot add a device/destination
• A total of 20 items of connection information can be added to the camera. Erase
unneeded connection information from the camera first, and then add new devices/
destinations (p. w-46).
• E-mail is the only web service for which multiple accounts can be set. Use
CameraWindow to change the desired Web service (p. w-15).
• To add a smartphone as a device, first install the dedicated application
CameraWindow on your smartphone.
• To add a computer as a device, first install the included software CameraWindow on
the computer.
• Avoid using the camera’s wireless LAN function around microwave ovens, Bluetooth
devices, and other devices that operate on the 2.4 GHz band, as this will weaken
wireless LAN signals.
• When using infrastructure mode, use the camera within a close distance to the
access point, and avoid placing objects or obstructions between the camera and
access point.
• When using ad hoc mode, use the camera within a close distance to the connected
device, and avoid placing objects or obstructions between the camera and device.
w-51
Troubleshooting
Cannot send images
• The destination device has insufficient storage space. Increase the storage space on
the destination device and resend the images.
• Images shot in high-speed burst mode are grouped. Cancel grouping and then send
the images.
• The write-protect tab of the SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card or Eye-Fi card of the
destination camera is set to the locked position. Slide the write-protect tab to the
unlocked position. IXUS 240 HS
Cannot resize images for sending
• Images cannot be resized to be bigger than the resolution setting of their original size.
• Movies cannot be resized.
Images take a long time to send
• Multiple images may take a long time to send. Try resizing the image to M2 or S to
reduce sending time (p. w-41).
