    I have a Canon MX700 printer (not wireless), and a Linksys Router – WRT54G2. I’m trying to setup the printer on a wireless network so it can print via mobile devices (ie. MacBook, iPad and iPhone). I’ve gotten to the point that the printer LAN has the following details:
    IP address:
    Subnet mask:
    Default gateway:
    MAC address: 00:00:85:C6:3E:06
    MAC address filtering: Off
    IP address filtering: Off

    The IP Configuration for the router’s Network Connection has the following setting:
    Physical address: 00-16-76-C2-18-4E
    DHCP enable: Yes
    Autoconfiguration enable: Yes
    IP Address:
    Subnet mask:
    Default gateway:
    DHCP Server:
    DNS Servers:

    I’ve setup the printer on the MacBook OS X ver. 10.5.8; the General settings for the printer are:
    Queue name: _192_168_1_114
    Host name: localhost
    Driver version:
    URL: lpd://

    The most I’m getting out of the printer from the MacBook are test pages, from the printer’s utility.

    I’m lost as far as what to do next, I’ve looked on line and nothing seems to help. ANY SUGGESTION OR DIRECTIONS, please.
