Incompatible with Airport Express
Hooking up the Canon Pixma 3550 to my iMac using a USB cable went smoothly. But the reason I bought the printer was to print using wi-fi. This feature does not, however, work as advertised.
Connecting the printer to my Airport Extreme Basestation is, as far as I can tell, impossible. I've tried all methods offered by Canon's installation software and none of them work.
Trying to connect using WPS isn't possible because there is no button on the access point (my wi-fi base station I assume) which I'm asked to push after having been instructed to enter a byzantine combination of buttons on the printer itself.
The PIN code method becomes a dead end when I'm asked to enter a PIN code into the computer's "setup screen". I have no idea what a "Set up screen" is.
I'm appaled at the poor quality of Canon's installation software and would advise anyone wanting to print wirelessly to choose another product.

I just bought my MG3520 white and I am impressed. The ease of use is very convenient. The print quality is outstanding in both black & color modes. For the price this is an excellent Home/office printer/copier/scanner
