Setting up the wireless connection for your printer may seem daunting, but with this step-by-step guide, you’ll have it up and running in no time. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced user, these instructions will help you navigate through the process effortlessly.

Preparing for Setup

Before diving into the wireless setup process, make sure you have all the necessary items at hand. Start by checking if your printer is compatible with wireless connection. The Canon PIXMA TS3522 supports both Windows and Mac operating systems, ensuring compatibility with most devices.

Next, gather your network information. You will need the name of your Wi-Fi network (SSID) and the password to connect your printer wirelessly. If you’re unsure about these details, consult your router’s manual or contact your internet service provider for assistance.

Connecting to Wi-Fi

To begin the wireless setup process, power on your Canon PIXMA TS3522 printer and ensure it is placed within range of your Wi-Fi router. Once powered on, locate the “Setup” button on the printer’s control panel.

Pressing the “Setup” button will initiate a series of prompts on the printer’s LCD screen. Use the arrow buttons to navigate through these prompts until you find “Wireless LAN Setup.” Select this option by pressing the “OK” button.

In the next screen, choose “Easy Setup” and press “OK.” The printer will now search for available Wi-Fi networks in range. Once it finds yours, select it from the list displayed on-screen using the arrow buttons and press “OK.”

If prompted, enter your Wi-Fi password using the alphanumeric keypad on-screen or via an attached keyboard if available. Double-check for any typos before proceeding. Once entered, press “OK” to confirm.

Installing Printer Software

After successfully connecting your Canon PIXMA TS3522 to your Wi-Fi network, it’s time to install the printer software on your computer. Insert the installation CD that came with your printer into your computer’s CD drive or download the latest software drivers from Canon’s official website.

Follow the on-screen instructions provided by the installer wizard to complete the software installation process. Make sure to select “Wireless Connection” as your preferred connection method when prompted.

During installation, you may be asked to temporarily connect your printer to your computer using a USB cable. This step allows for seamless communication between devices during setup. Once the installation is complete, you can disconnect the USB cable and rely solely on wireless connectivity.

Testing and Troubleshooting

With both your printer and software installed, it’s time to test the wireless connection. Open a document or photo on your computer and select “Print.” Ensure that you have selected the Canon PIXMA TS3522 as your default printer in the print settings.

If everything is functioning correctly, you should hear a noise from the printer indicating that it is receiving data wirelessly. The document or photo should then print out without any issues.

In case of any connectivity problems or error messages during printing, refer back to the user manual for troubleshooting steps specific to your Canon PIXMA TS3522 model. You can also visit Canon’s support website for additional resources and assistance.


Setting up wireless connectivity for your Canon PIXMA TS3522 is a straightforward process when following these step-by-step instructions. By preparing beforehand, connecting to Wi-Fi correctly, installing necessary software, and testing thoroughly, you’ll be able to enjoy hassle-free wireless printing from various devices in no time at all.
