What is the "WPS button on the access point" that I am supposed to hold to connect the canon printer to my Linksys wireless?
I tried typing in the Linksys name and I tried holding down the little button in the back of the Linksys unit.
Hello! My name is XXXXX XXXXX X am happy to be working with you today. Let's see if we can get your problem resolved!What is the model of your Linksys router?
It's Linksys Broadband G wireless router
There are several different models. Look on the bottom for a model number.
This model of router doesn't have a WPS button. It as a Secure Easy Setup button on the front, which looks like THIS.
I pressed the button as called for in the directions. After the printer attempted to connect to the access point I get an error message. "Time out error, Check the access point. See the access point manual." I'll see if I can find the Linksys manual.
I'm not sure. Let me opt out and see if someone else knows whats up.
Thanks. I don't have the manual.

In order to connect the printer to the wireless network, you have to know the SSID (wireless network name) and WEP Passphrase (password).
Insert the printer driver disc and start installation using the disc. You will get an option says Wireless Connection. Be sure to select Wireless Connection on the Connection Method Selection screen. Follow the on screen instructions.
