The instructions are not complicated. They give a CD you put in your laptop and you follow the directions. For the initial set up, get a USB cable for printers. It's not included but once you do the initial set up via USB cable your good to go. No more cable needed. I connected my Iphone 5s to printer via Air print. If you choose not to the USB cable initial set up , you will be frustrated because it won't connect via wifi at first. I think that what most people are upset about. Once you connect it once via USB cable it pick up your wifi and your done, no need for the cable
Wireless install process is awful. Have never had a difficult time configuring devices to my network until now. Life is way too short to have to deal with a wireless setup process that doesn't work. If install protocol calls for easier setup with USB cable, then it would be a lot more prudent for Canon to include a USB cable. This piece of junk is going back to the store.
I purchase my printer one year ago but one of its components stopped working. I am having trouble getting the printer fix or exchange.
Always disconnected and had issues printing, but this was when it actually somewhat worked. When we got new router, it COMPLETELY DISCONNECTED and is IMPOSSIBLE to reconnect, meaning it can't print anything now and is nothing more than a useless piece of plastic. Worst printer ever. Don't waste your money on this
this printer is the worst piece of junk out there .
It never printed correctly right out the box. text was always too light. replacing the ink cartridges didn't help. After a year of light printing it just stopped printing altogether when the cartridges still had ink. Don't waste your money on this garbage
very nice product to use ,very easy to fix your self
