Support Printers All-In-Ones WorkForce Series Epson WorkForce Pro WF-M5899

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

  • See below.

    Wi-Fi Direct Mode Setup

    You can set up your product to communicate directly with your computer or another device without requiring a wireless router or access point. In Wi-Fi Direct Mode, the product itself acts as a network access point for up to 8 devices.

    1 Epson product
    2 Computer with a wireless interface
    3 Other wireless device

    Note: The product normally uses W52 (36ch) as the channel when connecting to Wi-Fi Direct (Simple AP). Since the channel for wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) connection is selected automatically, the channel used may differ when used at the same time as a Wi-Fi Direct connection. Sending data to the printer may be delayed if the channels are different. If it does not interfere with use, connect to the SSID in the 2.4 GHz band. In the 2.4 GHz frequency band, the channels used will match.

    When setting the wireless LAN to 5 GHz, we recommend disabling Wi-Fi Direct.
