Connecting to Wireless LAN

Before connecting to wireless LAN, see "Attention (Connecting to a Wireless LAN)" in the e-Manual.

Two methods are provided for connecting to the wireless LAN or access point, connecting using WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) function or connecting manually.

Select the appropriate setting method after checking the following functions on the wireless LAN or access point you are using.

  • "Configuring with WPS Features" in this content
  • "Configuring Manually" in this content
note:
  • You cannot use wired LAN and wireless LAN at the same time

- The machine's default connect method is "Wired LAN." When using a wireless LAN connection, it is necessary to switch the connection method to "Wireless LAN."

For details, see "Switching the Connection Method to Wireless LAN or Wired LAN" in this content.

- You can connect the machine to wireless LANs or wired LANs, but you cannot use at the same time.When using a wireless LAN connection, do not connect a LAN cable to the machine. This may cause malfunctions.

  • Configuring with WPS Features

When your wireless LAN routers and/or access points support WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) features, you can connect to the machine by using push button system or PIN code system.

note:
  • Checking WPS Functions

Check whether the box or body of the wireless LAN router or access points that you are using supports the WPS function.

As an example, a symbol such as shown below can be seen on the shipping box or machine.

This supports WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup).

If you are not sure, contact the wireless LAN router or access point manufacturer.

  • Other setting method

Refer to "Configuring Manually" in this content to manually connect to the wireless LAN.

- Push Button System

Press the WPS button on your wireless LAN routers and/or access points for connection. For details, see "Setting the Machine Using WPS (Push Button Mode)" in the e-Manual.

- PIN Code System

Enter the PIN code generated by the machine to wireless LAN routers and/or access points for connection. For details, see "Setting the Machine Using WPS (PIN Code Mode)" in the e-Manual.

  • Configuring Manually

If your wireless LAN routers and/or access points do not support WPS, enter the wireless LAN router and/or access point information to the machine for connection.

- Select Access Point

From the list of access points searched by the machine, select a wireless LAN router or an access point to be connected and enter a network key for connection. For details, see "Setting by Manually Selecting an Access Point" in the e-Manual.

- Manual Entry

Enter manually the SSID and/or security information (encryption type/authentication method or encryption method/network key) of wireless LAN routers and access points to be connected to the machine. For details, see "Setting by Manually Entering SSID" in the e-Manual.
