Advanced wireless setup

Creating an ad hoc wireless network
You can set up an ad hoc network if you:
Do not have an access point or wireless router
Do not have a wireless network (but do have a wireless network adapter for your computer)
Want to set up a standalone network between the printer and a computer with a wireless network adapter
Before you begin, make sure your wireless network adapter is properly attached to your computer and is working.
The recommended way to set up your wireless network is to use an access point (wireless router). This network
setup is called infrastructure network.
If your computer has MyWi-Fi or Wi-Fi Direct, then you can create direct connections to your wireless printer. For
more information, see the documentation that came with your computer.
The printer can communicate on only one wireless network at a time. Configuring the printer for an ad hoc
wireless network will keep it from working on any other wireless network, either ad hoc or infrastructure.
In Windows Vista or later
> Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center.
Click Set up a connection or network > Set up a wireless ad-hoc (computer-to-computer) network > Next.
Follow the instructions for setting up a wireless ad hoc network. As part of the setup:
Create a network name or SSID for the network between the computer and your printer.
Write down the name of your network. Make sure you copy it exactly, including any capital letters.
Go to the Security Type list, select WPA2-Personal or WEP, and then create a WPA passphrase or WEP key.
WPA passphrases must be:
From 8 to 63 ASCII characters. ASCII characters are letters, numbers, and symbols found on a keyboard.
ASCII characters in a WPA passphrase are case-sensitive.
Exactly 64 hexadecimal characters. Hexadecimal characters are A–F, a–f, and 0–9.
