    Hi,

    I'm trying to connect to a Canon iP1600 attached to a Windoze computer over a wireless network. I can see it fine, but I can't find a driver that works over the wireless. If I plug it in USB, it works fine, but that's not really an option since I can't take it from the other computer. I have a Linksys N Router, with dd-wrt firmware if that makes any difference.
    Thanks in advance!

    The driver provided by Canon is a Carbon driver, which works for whatever they wrote into the driver - USB only. You need a CUPS driver, like the Gutenprint drivers Apple included in OS X, for network printing. Try the Gutenprint iP2200 driver. I don't know which version it was included in, so you may want to update your Gutenprint:
