    What version of OS X are you running? Do you have the correct drivers for the printer? Did you setup the printer on you wireless network yet?

    On Canon printers you first must connect to the printer via USB. Then on a Mac check the Mac's Software Update to get the latest Canon drivers. Then is System Preferences->Print & Fax add the printer and then select the buttons on the right to setup the printer to setup it's wireless connection.
