Wireless Connection

There are two methods for connecting the printer to your device (such as a smartphone). One method is to connect using a wireless router, and the other method is to connect without using a wireless router.

The two connection methods cannot be used at the same time.

If you have a wireless router, we recommend you use the method described in Connection Using a Wireless Router.

When connecting another device while a device is already connected to the printer, connect it using the same connection method as the connected device.

If you connect using a different connection method, the connection to the device in use will be disabled.

  • Connection Using a Wireless Router

    • Connect the printer and a device using a wireless router.

    • Connection methods vary depending on the wireless router type.

    • When the connection between a device and a wireless router is completed and (Wi-Fi icon) is displayed in the device's screen, you can connect the device to the printer using the wireless router.

  • Connection without Using a Wireless Router

    • Connect the printer and a device without using a wireless router. Connect a device and the printer directly using the printer's access point mode function.

    • When establishing a connection in the access point mode, Internet connection may become unavailable. In that case, web services for the printer cannot be used.

    • If you connect a device connected to the Internet via a wireless router to the printer that is in the access point mode, the connection between the device and wireless router will be disabled. In that case, the connection of the device may switch to a mobile data connection automatically depending on your device. Transmission fees for connecting to the Internet using a mobile data connection apply.

    • In the access point mode, you can connect up to five devices at the same time. If you try to connect a sixth device while five devices are already connected, an error will appear. If an error appears, disconnect one of the connected device you do not use and configure settings again.
