The Canon PIXMA MG2500 series printers are good at printing and scanning. However, this type of printer doesn’t support wireless connectivity and so you cannot perform the Canon MG2500 wireless setup. Canon provides Hi-Speed USB as the standard interface to balance the lack of the wireless connectivity option. To know how to perform the USB setup for your printer, go through the steps given below.


  • Verify if you have completed the basic printer setup.
  • Turn on your printer and check if it is loaded with enough paper.
  • Disconnect the cable connected to your printer, if any.
  • Make sure that you have a standard USB cable handy.


You can check the USB connection by printing a test page. As you have seen, the USB setup is quite simple and easy compared to the Canon MG2500 wireless setup. But at times, something worse can happen and cause installation problems. If you aren’t able to install the printer driver using the provided Setup CD-ROM, download the driver from the official Canon site by following these steps.

Since we are performing the USB setup instead of the Canon MG2500 wireless setup, there are chances that your printer fails to be added to your Windows computer. In such cases, add your Canon MG2500 printer using the add printer wizard in Control Panel.
