    PIXMA MX925 Wireless Connection Setup

    Find instructions on how to setup the wireless connection on your PIXMA MX925 printer and also how to reset the printer to factory settings.

    Some access points (sometimes referred to as routers or hubs) feature an automatic connection button labelled “WPS” which stands for Wi-Fi Protected Setup.

    This allows permitted devices such as your PIXMA MX925 to connect to your network without needing to enter a password and it enables a quick and easy method of connecting your devices.

    This method is by far the easiest way of connecting your PIXMA MX925, so if your access point has a WPS button please select the 'WPS Connection Method' tab below for instructions on connecting using this method.

    If your router does not support WPS we have provided alternative instructions to get your PIXMA MX925 connected so please select the 'Standard Connection Method' tab below.

    WPS Connection Method

    Before we start, there are some conditions that must be met in order to use the WPS push button method:

    • The access point must have a physical WPS push button available. Please check with your device’s user guide for details.
      If the WPS push button is not available please use the instructions on the Standard Connection Method tab.
    • Your network must be using the WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) or WPA2 security protocol. Most WPS enabled access points use this protocol.

    Step 1

    1. Press the [Menu] button (A) on the printer.
