After this, a setup installation wizard will come up on the screen. Follow the wizard by clicking on the “Next” option. After that, finish the installation to prepare your software.
Now, to avail of the wireless connection facility, you need to cross-check a few things before enabling the WPS button, which is the WiFi-protected setup button. This button is available on any router.
- Make sure that the access point that the operating system has, can enable the network so that you can use WPA protocol while setting up.
- Make sure that the router has a WPS button at the rear side of the router.
Now, all you need to do is switch on the printer and wait until you can visibly see the flashlight blinking only once. The color is supposed to be blue. Once you see that, know that the printer is on and running.
Now, you need to locate the “WPS” button which you will find at the backside of the printer. After you’ve found the WPS button, press it instantly within 2 minutes from the start of the printer. One of the ways to know that the printer is looking for the access point is when the blue light keeps blinking until it has found it.
Once it does find it, the blue light will get static. If the whole procedure of finding the access point turns out to be successful then you will come to notice that the WiFi lamp, as well as the lamplight (blue), will stay static and stop blinking.
Now, if you are unsure that it is connected or not, try printing a document or a picture as a test. Simply insert a sheet or two on the scanner tray and then press the button that says “Resume” and hold it.
Take notice that the indicator is supposed to blink for at least 15 times. After you’ve done the count, release your finger and let go of the button. Now, if the setup was successful then you will be receiving a print.
