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 your scanner (ES-300W/ES-300WR). You must have a computer with a wireless adapter to set up the connection. Also make sure you have installed your scanner software as described on your scanner Start Here sheet.

    Note: For best results, re-install your scanner software and follow the on-screen instructions to connect to a network.

    1. Turn your scanner over and locate the label on the bottom listing the SSID and password for your scanner. Make a note of the SSID and password for use later.
    2. Set the connection mode switch on the side of the scanner to the  AP mode position.
    3. Turn on the scanner and wait for the lights to stop flashing.
    4. 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.
    5. Enter the password shown on the scanner label.
    6. Connect your computer or device to your wireless network router.
    7. Set the connection mode switch on the side of the scanner to the  Wi-Fi position.

      Wait for the ready and  Wi-Fi lights on the scanner to stop flashing and stay on, indicating that the scanner is connected to the network.
    8. Select the link below to set up network scanning. You must set up network scanning to connect your computer and wireless scanner.
