Had a MG2200 and everything was fine....



Hi Sasha2000,


You will need to install the drivers for the printer on the iMac to have it connect with the printer on your wireless network. The latest drivers for the printer can be downloaded from the Canon USA website.  Please click here to go to the Drivers and Software page for the PIXMA MG2520 (uses the PIXMA MG2500 series drivers).  Once on the download page, please do the following:


1. Verify that the operating system detected in the "OPERATING SYSTEM" drop-down menu is correct, and if it is not, please click the drop-down menu to select your operating system.


2. Next, please click on the red arrow next to the "RECOMMENDED FOR YOU" section and click on the FULL DRIVER AND SOFTWARE PACKAGE file. When you do, a red DOWNLOAD button will appear. Please click on the checkbox below the DOWNLOAD button, then click the red DOWNLOAD button to begin the download. The time for the download process may vary depending on the speed of your Internet connection and the size of the file being downloaded.


Once the file is downloaded, please double-click on it to install it on your computer. This will install all drivers and software for the printer on your Mac.


Hope this helps!
