Article ID: ART184462 | Date published: 11/07/2023 | Date last updated: 11/07/2023


This article explains how to connect a wireless computer, phone or tablet directly to the MAXIFY GX5520X. This will allow you to print and scan without using a wireless router.


You can connect devices (e.g. computer, smartphone, or tablet) to the printer by two methods below.

  • Wireless connection (connecting devices via a wireless router)

  • Direct wireless connection (connecting devices directly without a wireless router)

 You can connect up to 5 devices to the printer at the same time with Wireless Direct.

 Some printers support IEEE802.1X / EAP (WPA / WPA2 / WPA3 Enterprise). If you enable Wireless Direct while IEEE802.1X / EAP (WPA / WPA2 / WPA3 Enterprise) is enabled, IEEE802.1X / EAP (WPA / WPA2 / WPA3 Enterprise) is disabled.

When IEEE802.1X / EAP (WPA / WPA2 / WPA3 Enterprise) is enabled, enable Administrator mode so that the Wireless Direct settings cannot be changed.
