what kind of usb

I have what appear to be a common problem -- my laptop, running Windows 10, does not see my Canon Pixmas MG3522.  The printer's wireless light is a solid blue.  When I went to connect the printer by USB instead, I ran into a problem -- the only existing port in the printer, marked with a network icon, is NOT a standard USB.  It is square, as in the connector inside the port.  Please let me know what kind of cable I need.

Re: what kind of usb

You need a Printer USB cable. One should have come with the printer.


Also known as a Type A Male to Type B Male cable.
