Connecting the printer to a wireless network using the Embedded Web Server

Before you begin, make sure that:
Your printer is connected temporarily to an Ethernet network.
A wireless network adapter is installed in your printer and working properly. For more information, see the
instruction sheet that came with the wireless network adapter.
Open a Web browser, and then type the printer IP address in the address field.
View the printer IP address on the printer control panel. The IP address appears as four sets of numbers
separated by periods, such as
If you are using a proxy server, then temporarily disable it to load the Web page correctly.
Click Settings > Network/Ports > Wireless.
Modify the settings to match the settings of your access point (wireless router).
Note: Make sure to enter the correct SSID, security method, preshared key or passphrase, network mode, and
Click Submit.
Turn off the printer, and then disconnect the Ethernet cable. Then wait for at least five seconds, and then turn the
printer back on.
To verify if your printer is connected to the network, print a network setup page. Then in the Network Card [x]
section, see if the status is Connected.
Changing port settings after installing a new network ISP
If the printer has a static IP address, then you do not need to make any changes.
If the computers are configured to use the network name, instead of an IP address, then you do not need to
make any changes.
If you are adding a wireless ISP to a printer previously configured for an Ethernet connection, then make sure
the printer is disconnected from the Ethernet network.
For Windows users
Open the printers folder.
From the shortcut menu of the printer with the new ISP, open the printer properties.
Configure the port from the list.
Update the IP address.
Apply the changes.
For Macintosh users
From System Preferences in the Apple menu, navigate to the list of printers, and then select + > IP.
Type the IP address in the address field.
