    I have the same situation as you (Canon MP830) and there don't seem to be any network drivers for it. You may have the same problem. What model do you have?

    Wow, I have a MP830 as well. If this doesn't work via her Windows box, do you guys think it should work if I got an Aiport Extreme Base Station (802.11n) and hooked it up through that?

    If the OP hooked it up through the router, maybe it would work that way, depending on what router he has?
