Connect Tablet/PC

Connect the printer to a tablet or PC, and configure wireless LAN settings for the printer and/or static IP address settings.

Once a static IP address is assigned to the printer, IP address changes through the DHCP server will not occur, so the specified connection destination device can be used continuously once set.


The connection method depends on the operating system of the device you are using.

Printer wireless LAN settings / Static IP address settings

Connect from an iOS device

If your network uses DHCP and your router or wireless LAN access point supports WPS*, connecting with WPS* is convenient.

Also, connecting with AP mode (Access Point Mode) is also possible. In AP mode, the printer becomes a simple access point and devices such as wireless LAN tablets can connect directly to the printer. If DHCP or WPS cannot be used, first connect in AP mode to configure wireless LAN settings for the printer in order to allow the printer to connect to a wireless LAN network.

Depending on the firmware version of the printer, AP mode cannot be used. Perform the steps in Connect with Ad-Hoc.
