    3. Press the arrow buttons to select Wi-Fi Direct and press the OK button.

        Note: If you have already connected devices or computers to your product via Wi-Fi Direct, they will be disconnected when you change the password.

    7. Enter the Wi-Fi Direct password you want to use. Your password must be at least 8 and no more than 22 characters long.
      • Press the up and down arrow buttons to scroll through characters. Then press the right arrow button to move to the next character.

    9. Use your computer or wireless device to select the Wi-Fi network name (SSID) displayed on the LCD screen and enter the password shown.
    10. On your product control panel, press the OK button twice to exit. You see the  connection symbol on the LCD screen and should be able to print from your device to your product. If you are printing from a computer, make sure you installed the network software as described on the Start Here sheet.

    If the  connection symbol does not appear on the LCD screen, Wi-Fi Direct mode is not enabled. Repeat these steps to try again.
