Hi, can anyone give me a straightforward link to download the driver for canonMP492 combo printer for W7 please. Had many attempts myself but seem to get sent here, there and everywhere and get anything other that than what I require.

Thank chronos, I did try that site and that driver earlier as it seemed logical to get it direct from Canon without the runaround and other nonsense one gets from third party sites. I could not get it to work, all I got in control panel was "Add new printer" and the choice of "local printer" or "network,wireless, bluetooth". As it is a local printer one cable to one PC I chose the "local printer " option but it did not work. The printer is not set to network nor is it wireless. having tried everything else I could think of my only other option was to try the Network Wireless choice which worked strait away, so now it's up and running. I would love anyone to explain this if they can.
