Yes. It comes loaded with an "introductory" black cartridge and color cartridge. These have a small supply of ink, so you should have replacements on hand. It uses Canon 210 and 211 cartridges I recommend the XL models for the most ink.

Cut on the printer. Lift the scanner bed and slide piece to keep the bed propped up. The ink cartridges will slide to the middle. Push forward as shown on the case of the cartridge. Pop the ink cartridge out. Open new ink cartridge. Remove plastic cover from cartridge. Insert cartridge into case. Close case. Close scanner bed.

Question

Can I use this as wireless printer or network printer (without the need of client PC) ?

I have a small network established at home consisting of a cable modem, then a wireless router and I use 3 laptops at home on this wireless network. I do NOT have any desktop PC. I want to be able to connect one of the router's output port to this printer (without the need of a dedicated PC connected all the time with this printer) or possible set this printer to accept my wireless network at home. Is any of this possible with this Canon MP250 all-in-one printer ?

I think you would need either wireless capability or an ethernet input to do this. It has neither.

No. I dont think so. But you can get a device that goes between your router and the USB connection of the printer that should work.
