Page 1. Setting Up Wi-Fi Direct

 

 

Wi-Fi Direct is an easy-to-setup peer-to-peer connection method between a Wi-Fi Direct certified printer and a mobile device that provides a secure connection.

Wi-Fi Direct can be enabled by one of the following methods:

● Through Easy Printer Manager when connected with USB.

Through SyncThru Web Service when connected to a network wired or wirelessly.

Through the printer panel using the WPS button.

 

See the steps below per the connection method used for your printer:

Printer connected with USB

1. Open Easy Printer Manager and switch to Advanced Mode.

 

2. Select your printer and click the Device Settings tab

 

3. Click the Network Settings tab

 

4. Turn Wi-Fi Direct On and Enter the following information:

Device Name - enter the printer's name for searching for your printer on a wireless network. By default, the device name is the model name.

IP Address - Enter the IP address of the printer. This IP address is used only for Wi-Fi Direct and not for the wired or wireless network. It is recommended to use the default local IP address (192.168.3.1)

Group Owner - Activate this option to assign the printer the Wi-Fi Direct Group's owner. The Group Owner acts similar to a wireless access point.

Network Password - If your printer is a Group Owner, a network password is required for other mobile devices to connect to your printer. You can configure a network password yourself, or keep the given network password that is randomly generated by default.

 

5. Click Save at the bottom right to save the changes.

After enabling Wi-Fi Direct, a mobile printing application like the Samsung Mobile Print App will need to be downloaded to print from your smart phone or other mobile device.
