    Hi I've got a Canon MP620 which connects wirelessly to my Time Capsule. The Time Capsule is hooked up to my Mac Pro. On one of my PC's I added my Canon MP620 using Bonjour. I dont have any issues printing from my PC but when I click on the Canon Printer in Priters and Faxes, I hit properties,and then click advanced, The driver that is listed is an HP Color Laser Jet. When I select the Canon MP620 printer from the driver list, my PC won't print to my Canon Printer. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I noticed on the Canon support website for the Pixma MP620 that they released updated drivers in June of this year for Mac OS X 10.5. Did you download version 10.11.2.0, the 7.81 MB one? You may want to consider removing and then re-adding the printer to the Print & Fax preferences pane after installing the updated driver.

    Thanks for the help. After downloading the driver and removing the printer in Printers and Faxes should I use Bonjour to add the printer or some other way? Should I type in the IP Address of my Mac and add the printer that way? Thanks

    I'd recommend adding it as a Bonjour shared printer rather than going the IP route.
