I have a PIXMA MG5220, and it works like a charm. Did you follow the directions precisely to set up the wireless networking (assuming you're going wireless)?
My most humble recommendation: I have no idea why people find wires so objectionable when they are hidden behind the console and just connect a printer to a CPU four feet away. If you mess around with unnecessarily advanced and complex options, you end up with unnecessarily advanced and complex difficulties. In 25 years' computer usage, I have never had the first problem with something as straightforward as printing a document.
