Hi jamesescott_007 and barlowryan,

 

The Canon print and scan app is designed specifically for our ImageCLASS and ImageRUNNER serise of multifunction models and will not work with the PIXMA brand models.  In the case of the MX452, it has built in Airprint capability, so no app should be necessary.  As long as the app you're trying to print from supports Airprint, you should be able to print to the MX452.  If the printer you are using does not support Airprint, you would want to install Canon Easy Photo Print.

Re: connection code to set up wireless printing

Canon easy photo print is the app that prompts for this mysterious "connection code", so we are back to the original question. What is the connection code for a mx452 connection from an ipad2 through an AT&T uVerse media gateway ?

Re: connection code to set up wireless printing

I have a canon imagerunner 4080i and am trying to run the canon print & scan app and for the life of me, I cannot find this alleged "connection code", "security code" nor the QR Barcode anywhere on the machine.  The concept of printing from mobile device/tablets is elementary - yet I feel like an idiot, as I am completely hung up on this step in the set-up process.... for the love of God, please help me.... anybody...

Thanks,

Matt

"My dealer" can suck a fat one...  The sole reason I posted is because they had no idea how to answer my question.  Thank you
