Hi there,

First, you will need to install the printer driver on the Mac:

If the latest driver from Canon does not allow your Mac to print over the network, then you will need to get a driver from:

In the past with Windows, I needed a print server, thus I purchased the Silex c6700 we print server. My canon me 8350 only prints wireless with the print server.
I seem to be missing something in your instructions.
Please advise!,

Have you installed the latest driver from Canon onto your Mac?

Does it allow your Mac to print over the network?
