Wireless printing

by buzytee / January 8, 2013 6:58 AM PST

I want to be able to connect my Canon MX700 printer via ethernet cable to my Linksys Router - WRT54G2, with the ultimate goal of having only the printer and router on, and able to print wirelessly from my iPad, MacBook and/or iPhone. Is this possible, and if so, how?

It does that. All I needed to do was install the Canon print drivers on each machine. But for iPad and iPhone you have to install some printing app. Do you have such?
