THANK YOU aceaceace AND everyone else who left comments on this page! I was ready to scream and pull my hair out trying to connect my new Canon Pixma MG5620 printer to my home's WiFi network!!! I'm glad to know I was not alone in finding the instructions ABSURD and HARD TO UNDERSTAND! But I followed your guide above, and my printer then told me I had successfully connected to my home's WiFi network. Then I tried to print. FAILURE! I ended up just plugging in a printer cable directly to my laptop. I'm SO GLAD I paid for a printer with a WiFi connection that doesn't seem to work! I'm short on time today, but when I have more time, I will call customer support. Canon instructions suck! They really need to hire better technical writers.

@sherrylowey, I to have regestered just so I can thank you for this...
Unclear, innaccurate, incomplete and useless technical document writing is epidemic, but I believe Canon may take the cake in these regards...
(And it doesn't seem that thay are paying much if any attention to all the feedback about it in these forums, either...)

I registered just to help others with my experience on a pixma MG7520. To connect to wifi:
- Tap Setup
- Tap device settings
- Tap LAN settings
- Tap Wireless LAN Setup
- Tap "To other connection methods"
- Tap Standard setup
After that you will see a list of available wireless networks. Select yours, proceed to connect the American way.
