I have Wireless PIXMA MX410 and want to connect it to MacBook Air running Monterey 12.12.1
I have 3 MacBooks and no problem but with this computer it failed to connect. I have to connect it using Wi-Fi.
I tried WPS method. Printer claimed that it connected but actually it did not added it.
After that I tried to use method 'passphrase' and it also claimed that connected to router but I don't see that it added it.
I also tried to add printer using 'Printer' app but if failed to locate the driver.
Something wrong going on with it ... Finally I downloaded a driver from Cannon "mac-4_7_5-ea21_3.dmg" called Canon IJ Network Tool Ver.4.7.5 (Mac) but it also didn't add the printer.
Could someone please help me?
I called Support but auto-reply cancelled my call because PIXMA MX410 is supported only on Web site. My printer is too old 🙂
Still I'd like to try to connect it to my Mac.
Could someone please help me and explain 'any workaround' I could try? E.g. use USB connection instead of Wi-Fi or use driver from previous macOS release or etc.
Looks like I'm stuck with it. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance
The file you installed was a network tool and not a printer driver. This model printer has been retired and the last printer driver released was for Mac OS 10.12 High Sierra.
If the other Macbooks can see the printer and it's just the 1 that can't then I would say the issue is with that one Macbook. Since the printer is retired and not compatible with your computer, you qualify for the Canon Upgrade program.
