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 until the  Wi-Fi light and  Wi-Fi Direct light 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 on the product for at least five seconds to print a network status sheet.

      Note: If you release the button before five seconds has passed, a network connection report is printed instead of 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 an Android device, the  Wi-Fi and  Wi-Fi Direct lights flash simultaneously. Do one of the following:

      • Press the Wi-Fi button to connect the device.
      • Press the  stop button to cancel the connection 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.
