Checking the Type of Access Point

Checking the Type of Access Point

To connect using an access point, check if the access point supports WPS*, which allows easy connection between Wi-Fi devices.

If you do not know if the access point you will use is WPS-compatible, refer to the access point instruction manual or other documentation.

Wi-Fi Protected Setup

  • When WPS is supported

    The following two connection methods are available. Connection can be established more easily with WPS (PBC Mode).

    • Connecting via WPS (PBC Mode) ()
    • Connecting via WPS (PIN Mode) ()
  • When WPS is not supported

    • Connecting to a Detected Network Manually ()
    • Connecting to a Network Manually ()

Access Point Encryption

The transmitter supports the following options for [Authentication] and [Encryption settings]. Therefore, when connecting to a detected network manually, the encryption used by the access point must be one of the following.

  • [Authentication]: Open system, Shared key, WPA/WPA2-PSK, or WPA/WPA2-Enterprise
  • [Encryption settings]: WEP, TKIP, and AES

Caution

  • If the stealth functions of the access point are active, connection may be disabled. Deactivate the stealth functions.
  • When connecting to a network that has a network administrator, ask the administrator about the detailed setting procedures.

Note

  • If the network you are using filters by MAC address, register the MAC address of the transmitter to the access point. The MAC address can be found on the [MAC address] screen ().
