Wireless LAN connection of your printer to an access point

Solution

 

Before connecting this printer to the network, confirm the following two items, (A) and (B).


(A) Access point or router (supporting IEEE802.11b/g/n)
An access point or router is a relay device which connects not only the Internet and network devices such as a computer or printer, but also one network device to another.
So, your access point or router must be properly set before you go to the next setup step.

(B) The computer to be used with the printer must be connected to the network.
In order to confirm whether the computer to be used with the printer is connected to the network, try to browse the Internet website from the computer.
