Do you have a wi-fi router with your system from your internet provider? If so, it should and it will automatically find what your router, and your computer. The disk that came with the MX 490 should be downloaded into your computer. That is your driver. At that point, the computer and router will recognize your Canon PIXMA MX 490. You don't even have to put the ID from your GATEWAY in the printer. It works automatically. Give it a try. You won't hurt anything, and you can still get a wired connection and hook up that way if you can't figure it out. It's a lot simpler than you think. I'm 67 and haven't had a new printer until this one, in a while. If that doesn't work, go back to the Canon site, explain to them, on their chat line, what your problem is. Once they tell you what you need, go online and do a search, either through Google or Explorer.
