How do I connect my product with a Wi-Fi Direct connection?
Enabling Wi-Fi Direct ModeYou 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. Make sure paper is loaded before you begin.
Note: If you are printing from a computer, make sure you installed the network software as described on the Start Here sheet.
- Hold down the Wi-Fi button and press the network status button, holding down both buttons until the Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct lights flash alternately. Then release both buttons. After both lights stop flashing, the Wi-Fi Direct light remains on.
- Hold down the network status button for 10 seconds to print a network status sheet.
- Use your computer or wireless device to select the Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password listed in the Wi-Fi Direct section of the network status sheet.
Note: If you are connecting from an Android device, the Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct lights flash simultaneously. Press the Wi-Fi to accept the connection request (or press the stop button to reject the request).
Note: You can connect up to 4 devices to your product using Wi-Fi Direct. If you cannot connect from a device, check the number of connected devices shown on your network status sheet and delete a device, if necessary.Related Concepts
