PIXMA MG6350 Wi-Fi Setup Guide

Some access points (sometimes referred to as routers or hubs) feature an automatic connection button labelled “WPS” which stands for Wi-Fi Protected Setup.

This allows permitted devices such as your PIXMA printer to connect to your network without needing to enter a password and it enables a quick and easy method of connecting your devices.

This method is by far the easiest way of connecting your PIXMA printer so if your access point has a WPS button please select ‘WPS Connection Method’ below for instructions on connecting using this method.

If your access point does not support WPS we have provided alternative instructions to get your PIXMA printer connected so please select 'Standard Connection Method' below.

WPS Connection Method

Before we start, there are some conditions that must be met in order to use the WPS push button method:

  • The access point (or router/hub) must have a physical WPS push button available. Please check with your device’s user guide for details.
    If the WPS push button is not available please use the instructions in the Standard Connection Method section.

  • Your network must be using the WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) or WPA2 security protocol. Most WPS enabled access points use this protocol.
