How do I connect my product with a Wi-Fi Direct connection?

  • See below.

    Enabling Wi-Fi Direct Mode

    You can enable Wi-Fi Direct mode to allow direct communication between your product and computer or other devices without a wireless router or access point.

    Note: If you are printing from a computer, make sure you installed the network software as described on the Start Here sheet.

    1. Press the  home button, if necessary.
    2. Press the arrow buttons to select Wi-Fi Setup and press the OK button. You see this screen:

    3. Press the arrow buttons to select Wi-Fi Direct and press the OK button.
    4. Press the OK button until you see the network name and password on the LCD screen.
    5. Press the down arrow button and press the OK button to change the Wi-Fi Direct password.

      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.

    6. Enter your Wi-Fi Direct password.

      Note: Your password must be at least 8 and no more than 22 characters long.

      • To scroll through the characters, press the up or down arrow button.
      • To move the cursor to the right, press the right arrow button.
      • To change the character case or type, press the  reset button.
      • To delete the previous character, press the left arrow button.
      • When you finish entering characters, press the OK button.
    7. Press the OK button.
    8. Use your computer or wireless device to select the Wi-Fi network name (SSID) displayed on the LCD screen, then enter the password shown.

      Note: Make a note of the SSID and password that appear.

    9. Press the OK button to exit. You see either an AP or D connection symbol on the LCD screen and should be able to connect to your product directly from your computer or device, and then print.

      Note: If the AP or D connection symbol is not displayed in blue on the LCD screen, Wi-Fi Direct mode is not enabled. Repeat these steps to try again.
