A common method to connect your printer to your network is the Wi-Fi protected setup or the WPS mode. Out of the two methods offered, the first requires you to start WPS on your printer and then click on the WPS button on your router. The second method is the PIN method wherein the printer gives you a PIN code which can be updated in your router.


Printing using WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup)

WPS has two methods in order to connect devices together on a wireless connection. One method is known as the pushbutton and the other method is known as PIN. Pushbutton method is the easier of the two.

Please find below instructions to connect using the WPS pushbutton method.

PUSHBUTTON MODE

  • Requirements that need to be met in order to use the WPS pushbutton method
  • Both the wireless router and printer should support WPS pushbutton method.
  • The wireless router should have a physical WPS pushbutton available
  • The network should use either WPA2 or WPA security. Many WPS wireless routers will not connect using the WPS method if WEP or no security is used
  • Many WPS wireless routers may not connect using the WPS method if the manufacturer’s default is used as the network name and no security is used

PIN MODE

  • The network configuration page should be printed and the pin should be located for WPS.
  • In the printer control panel, locate the Wireless button. Now, press and hold this button for 3 seconds.
  • The software or configuration utility for the wireless access point or router should be opened. Now, enter the WPS PIN that was present on the network configuration page.
  • Please wait for around 2 minutes. If the printer gets connected successfully, then the wireless light will stop blinking and remains fully ON.
