    When I click the "+" to add a wireless printer, it doesn't show up. Bonjour is enabled on the printer. Could the Mac firewall be blocking it from showing up?
    Mac OS 10.6.8 and Canon MX410
    (The printer works via USB.)

    Have you downloaded the setup software for the printer? Might just not be recognized...

    I'm not sure. I've installed all the Canon software updates that are available via Apple Software Update. I might have installed the drivers from the Canon website a long time ago, I don't remember.

    I had it working once before via wireless. But it stopped showing up.

    According to the printer's own config settings, the Bonjour printer name (long string) still exists and Bonjour is enabled. But when I try to add it in Mac OS nothing shows up.
