    So i tried to set the printer up on my mac today. Put in the installation cd and installed drivers and program that came with the printer. I go to print out a document and it says that there is no printer connected and it can not find a printer. To my knowledge the printer is wireless and did not come with a usb cable to attach to the computer. On their site, (http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/c...fcategoryid=2610&modelid=17160#BoxContentsAct) it just says that it comes with power cord and installation stuff. Any help is appreciated.

    I got this printer a couple weeks ago and the first thing i did was chuck out the included drivers cd, plug it in via USB (It is not wireless) and was printing out a document in seconds very hassel free.
