How do I manually connect to a Wi-Fi network?
You can manually connect the scanner to a Wi-Fi network by entering the network names (SSIDs) and passwords for your wireless network router and scanner (ES-500W/ES-500WR). You must have a computer with a wireless adapter to set up the connection. Also make sure you have installed the scanner software as described on the scanner Start Here sheet.

- Press the Wi-Fi button on the scanner's control panel.
- From your computer or device, open the list of wireless networks and select the SSID shown on the scanner label. Then select the connect option.
- Enter the password shown on the scanner label. The AP mode light comes on in blue, indicating an AP mode connection.
