    I notice the printer is supposed to use the pxlmono driver. You can download the .ppd file and point the printer installer to it. Please post back so the searchers know what worked...or not. As well, post back if you get stuck.
    Well its the weekend so I won't be able to do anything till Monday. I'll let you know then.

    What kind of network are you trying to connect it too? If its a home network you can just click Start>Control Panel> Printers Then right click on the printer (assuming you have the driver installed and everything) Right Click > Properties > Sharing Tab > check share this printer, type the name you want it to show up as on your network and depending on if your on a domain check list in directory, (if your not on a domain I don't think this option even shows) click apply > ok > then go to the computer you want to share it too, (assuming its a xp or vista machine) Start>Control Panel>Printers>add new printer>add a network printer> (if its vista it will search auto and xp you should see a box to type the name of the printer in)

    Click connect and it will do its thing.
    SIDENOTE:
    Make sure when you type the name of the printer in the box, you put the name of the pc it's shared on first, then the printer name so it should look like this

    \\ComputerName\Printername

    Also make sure both computers are on the same work group and or domain. I've done it without them being on either but that takes a little more finesse

    K I have the ppd file and I browsed around a bit to find the right instructions but I'm still at a loss for how to get a driver installed...

    Re: Adding a Network Printer?

    how to get a driver installed...
    Go to System -> Administration -> Printing. Click New. Add a network printer, likely the IPP protocol. When you are confronted with a list of Canon printers and don't find your model, you should see the option to supply your ownn PPD file. Browse to it and add it.

    You may also see an option to search for network printers and add your own PPD file when it detects the ir2020 but has no driver.

    Re: Adding a Network Printer?

    SWEET! That worked out perfectly with the ir2020! I don't have time currently to try it on another Canon, the one I want to try it with is passworded... So if I get a chance I'll try it and let you know how that works out. But I was surprised in the network directory it saw all the networked printers in the building just I couldn't connect to them without the driver.

    That did not actually work for me, I used ir5570 to print on ir5050 printer and the one test page print ended up printing around 150 pages, and that was on a client site, so imagine the embarrassment
