Standard setup
The Target Access Point is Not Detected
Is the network device (router, etc.) turned on? If the network device is already turned on, turn it off, then turn it back
on.
Check the access point name/network name and network password of your access point or router.
Are the computer and network device configured?
Are the access point and printer installed in an open space where wireless communications are possible?

enable SSID broadcast (connection via "ANY" SSID, etc.) or disable the stealth mode, then press the left Function
button on the printer to search for the access point again.
Select Directly enter the access point name in the Select access point screen. Wireless connection settings of the
