When connecting your printer with the WiFi, we suggest using constant internet and not hotspots.
Your printer must remain connected with the WiFi at all times in order to print/scan and receive input. If your connection is temporary you would need to reconnect each time you want to use the printer remotely.

- Enter the WiFi security key of your network and tap on “Confirm”.
We suggest using a 2.4GHz WiFi network to connect your printer with. You will bypass many bugs the 5GHz one can deliver, so make sure to create two separate networks if you don’t have them already.
