Imageclass Color MF644Cdw - setting up wifi printing

Hello,

    I have a Canon Color Imageclass MF644Cdw. I am running Windows 11, on an HP laptop. The printer will work when connected to the USB port. However, does this printer have ability to print without being connected to the laptop via usb directly, such as wifi printing?

 

   If so, how do I set that up? The printer is connected to our wifi network in the settings menu.

 

HP laptop 17     

Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-1035G1 CPU @ 1.00GHz 1.20 GHz

Windows 11 Home   21h2   osbuild  22000.318

Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22000.318.0

Greetings,

Yes, wireless printing is supported.  Drivers for W11 have not been released yet, but W10 drivers will likely work.  

 

There are a few ways to accomplish this.  

 

First steps:

Verify the printer's IP address on your network.  You can view this on the printer under its Network settings, or from your router's admin portal under connected devices.  I personally would recommend assigning the printer a static or reserved IP on your network.  This ensures a consistent connection (one that doesn't change).      

 

Once you have the IP....

 

Start Menu > Control Panel > Device and Printers

 

Right click on the printer and select Remove Device from the context menu.

 

***Important step >Disconnect the printer from the USB connection now

 

Now look above and select Add A Printer  

 

Dialog opens, Click the "The Printer I Want Is Not Listed" text

 

Then select "Add a printer using TCP/IP or hostname" radio button, then press Next

 

Enter the IP address you verified/set above in the "Hostname or IP address" address field.

 

Press Next

 

Printer will be queried and added

 

Test printing.

thank you!

bad news, i dont have the username or pw for the admin menus.... how do i get that?

Greetings,

If you provide the make and model, I might be able to point you in the right direction.

 

If the device was issued by your ISP, the log in information might be printed on the bottom or side, on a sticker, etc.

Hello Mikegmazzone,

If the printer is connected to your network and you don't know the printer's IP address or have your username or password, you can try removing the USB connection from your printer list and downloading and installing the drivers for the printer to see if it can find the printer's network connection.

You can press the Windows key and the letter R key at the same time on your keyboard. In the run box that appears, you can type in control printers and click OK. In the Window that comes up, you can right click on the connections for the printer and select remove device. Once the connections are gone, you can download and install the recommended driver for the printer using the link HERE. During the driver setup, you can select the network option for the install and it will search your network for the printer connection.

If the setup does not find a connection for the printer, I would suggest contacting support at 1-800-652-2666. Our agents would be happy to check the connection for the printer and help you complete the network setup.

Hello, i am bringing this thread up from almost a year ago. I havent needed wireless printing, but I will now.

I got stuck last time as it asked for system manager id and pin. I have not or do not remember changing these when i got the printer from staples in 2020. I am using this in my home office. Also 7654321 didnt work. I then tried calling canon support but havent gotten anyone on the phone the last 2 attempts. 

Hello Mikegmazzone,

If you need the manager id and pin reset, you would need to contact support over the phone at 1-800-652-2666. The printer would need to be registered to a MyCanon account to call in for support. When trying to call in for support, did you get any recorded messages, did the call drop or what problems did you run into?
