Our printers do not come with USB cables. If you do not have a cable from a previous printer, you can purchase any standard A to B USB cable locally to make the connection. This is a fairly common cable that can be found at most major office supply or electronics retailers.
The iP2820 can only be used with a USB connection. It does not have wireless capabilities.

Why would you sell a product without all of the required componets to use it? I litterly just bought this printer and now i have to wait untill all of the stores open tomorrow and burn more gas to drive out and get this cable and spend more money. Its like selling a flashlight without batteriers and not putting a label on it to pick up batteriers. How are your first time customers supposed to know they need this cabel if it does not say so on the box? Or if they have never owned a printer before?

We can understand your concern. Since the majority of customers are replacing a previous printer, odds are that they already have a USB cable lying around from that previous printer and that cable can be reused. USB cables are also available in different lengths and this lets you choose the length that works for you without us putting in a cable that turns out to be too short for your needs.
The printer's contents are listed as icons in a box on your printer's outer packaging. In that box, you'll also see a message clearly stating that the USB cable is not included.
We hope this helps!

Hello, I am staten2000 and I have literally just read through all the information provided and the only thing I have found is under Warnings second bullet which states:
Plugging in the power cord and/or cable other than the one supplied.
So, I have missed where it clearly states that anything is not included. Please direct me where I can find this information it's driving me crazy.

This is extremely frustrating. I have bought many, many usb compatible electronic devices and never once have I encountered one that did not come with the necessary cable. I will not be purchasing another Canon product. Not including the cable is obviously a way to cut costs, but I gladly would have paid a dollar or two more for the cable to be included. Ridiculous.

I did not find anything stating that this product didn't come with all the necessary cables. I'm not going to buy a Canon again! This is false advertisement, because there was literally NOTHING saying that the USB cable was missing. I checked all the manuals and didn't even find out until I tried to set it up with the CD.

I just looked all over my box and it sayd NOTHING about the cable not being included. Matter of fact, it shows the cable, the drivers cd, and the ink ON the box. Funny they include a cd when one could simply download drivers, but not a cable they masy need. Canon, this is ridiculous.

You can use a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 cable with our printers, as long as it is an "A to B" USB cable.
