    My Windows 7 PC does not recognize my wireless printer therefore I cannot print.

    Does anyone know how to connect a wireless printer to a Windows 7 PC?

    thanks,
    bob

    You need to provide the actual printer model to get any accurate answer.

    But the basics are you run the installation CD or the downloadable installer and it will configure the printer and computer for you.

    The printer model is Canon MX 870.

    I found the original install CD and ran it though when the install was done it couldn't find any printers on the network. So I'm stuck in a catch 22 situation. Any ideas?
