WIFI 5Ghz

Just bought the Canon MG6620 and I have connected it to my Home Network with out a problem and she is working great!  But it connected to the 2.4Ghz Band of my router. But I was just wondering does this printer support the 5Ghz Band which I would much rather connect to?

Hi tjisret,

 

The PIXMA MG6620 is not compatible with the 5Ghz band of routers.

Re: WIFI 5Ghz

What Canon printer does support 5 GHz? In my environment 2.4 GHz is too crowded and I moved my whole WLAN to 5GHz.

Re: WIFI 5Ghz

Hello.

 

Our printers are not able to connect to 5.0GHz networks.  If you have a printer that has an Ethernet connection, consider using this connection instead.  Devices that connect to the same router should be able to access the printer this way.

 

If additional assistance is needed with this matter, find more help at Contact Us.

Re: WIFI 5Ghz

tinyteri,

 

A standard Wi-Fi router will be needed in order to access the printer wirelessly over a network.  If one is not available, the printer will have to be connected to your computer via USB cable.
