How do I set up a wireless connection between my computer and projector without a wireless network?

    You can set up a peer-to-peer (Quick Connection Mode) connection. This connects your computer directly to the projector with a wireless connection. While using this type of connection, you cannot connect your computer to the Internet, so make sure the EasyMP Network Projection software is already installed on your computer and your presentation, or images are also stored on your computer.

    To set up the projector for a peer-to-peer (Quick Connection Mode) connection, see "Setting Up the Projector" below. To connect to the projector, see "Connecting Your Computer" to the Projector below.

    Note: Your computer must have a wireless card or built-in wireless interface, and be running Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP Professional x64, or Windows XP, or OS X 10.5.8 to 10.10.x.

    Setting Up the Projector

    1. If necessary, insert the wireless LAN module into the projector's port.

      Note: If this is the first time you're installing the wireless LAN module, see Installing the Wireless LAN Module for more instructions.

    2. Turn on the projector.
    3. Press the Menu button on the remote control, select the Network menu, then press . Select Network Configuration, then press .

    4. Select the Basic menu, then press . Select Projector Name, then press . Enter a name you can easily identify, then select Finish. The Projector Name is the name you'll select later to connect to your projector.

    5. Select the Wireless LAN menu, then press . Set the following settings: Wireless LAN Power to On, Connection Mode to Quick and SSID Auto Setting to On.
    6. Select the Security menu, then press . Set the Security setting to No.
    7. Select the Complete menu, then press . Select Yes, then press .
    8. Press Esc to exit the menus.
    9. Install the EasyMP Network Projection software on the computer you will project from. To download and install the software, go to the EasyMP Network Projection software page (Windows or OS X ), select Download under EasyMP Network Projection, then follow the on-screen instructions.

    Connecting Your Computer to the Projector

    1. If necessary, insert the wireless LAN module into the projector's port.

      Caution:
      Never remove the module while its indicator light is green or flashing, or while you are projecting wirelessly. You may damage the module or lose data.

    2. In your computer's list of wireless networks, select your projector's name. This is the Projector Name you entered in the projector's Basic menu.

      Note: You may not be able to connect to the projector while some menus are displayed. Press Esc to exit menus, if necessary.
