How To Connect Your Canon TS3120 Printer to Wi-Fi
If your Canon TS3120 printer isn’t already connected to Wi-Fi, follow these steps to establish the connection:
Power On Your Printer
Ensure your Canon TS3120 printer is powered on. The power button is typically located on the top left corner of the printer.

You will be prompted to enter the Wi-Fi network’s password. Use the on-screen keyboard to enter the correct password, and then press “OK.”
Once you’ve entered the password, the printer will attempt to connect to the Wi-Fi network. When the connection is successful, a message will confirm the connection.
