How do I connect my WPS-enabled wireless router to my product?

    See below.

    Using WPS to Connect to a Network

    If you have a WPS-enabled wireless router, you can use Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) to connect your scanner to the network (ES-300W/ES-300WR). 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. Set the connection mode switch on the scanner to the  Wi-Fi position.
    2. Enable WPS on your router by pressing and holding the WPS button until the security light flashes or by enabling the WPS setting in your router firmware. The router enters WPS discovery mode for 2 minutes.

      Note: If you cannot locate the WPS button, or there are no buttons on the router, see the documentation provided with your router for details.

    3. Turn on the scanner.
    4. Press and hold the  Wi-Fi connect button on the scanner for at least 3 seconds, then release it when the ready and  Wi-Fi lights flash alternately.

      Note: If you do not complete this step within 2 minutes, repeat steps to try again.

      When the ready and  Wi-Fi lights on the scanner stay on, the scanner is connected to the network.

      Note: If the ! error light turns on, the connection failed. Press the  stop button to clear the error, restart the scanner and router, and repeat these steps.

    5. Select the link below to set up network scanning. You must set up network scanning to connect your computer and wireless scanner.

    Using WPS PIN Mode to Connect to a Network

    If you have a WPS-enabled wireless router that supports PIN mode, you can use Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) PIN mode to connect your scanner to the network (ES-300W/ES-300WR). 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.

      Note: The scanner enters WPS discovery mode for 2 minutes.

    6. Use your computer to enter the PIN code 01234565 into the WPS PIN number setting in the wireless router within two minutes. The ready and  Wi-Fi lights on the scanner stay on, indicating that the scanner is connected to the network.

      Note: If you do not enter the code within 2 minutes, repeat steps 1 through 6.

    7. Turn off the scanner.
    8. Set the connection mode switch on the scanner to the  Wi-Fi position.
