Printer Problem

Hi all, I'm new to this forum so please be carefull :-)

Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place so I thought I'd start at the top.

I've just purchased a Canon Pixma MG3550 printer which is Google cloud ready. I'm damned if I can get the thing linked up. It's not listed in the Google cloud of compatible printers but according to the supplier, it's Chromebook compatible. I keep going round in circles with no progression. Searching the web, I'm just coming up against a brick wall. Any help or advice?? The printer is wireless but I'm connected via USB lead.

Keep it wireless on the same network as your Chromebook. Once you login, go to Settings>Show Advanced Settings>Google Cloud Print>Manage. From there you should see the printer, as long as they are on the same network.

Therein lies the 64,000 dollar question: 'What might that be'???
