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. 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.

    1. 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.
    2. Hold down the  network status button for 10 seconds to print a network status sheet.
    3. 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).

    You should now be able to print to your product directly from your computer or device. If you cannot print successfully, repeat the process above and make sure you enter the password exactly as written on the network status sheet.

    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.
