What methods can I use to configure wireless settings?
The following connection methods are available:
When you select this connection, the wireless LAN devices (printers and computers) in the network communicate through a Wi-Fi® access point/router. If you connect a printer and a computer to a Wi-Fi access point/router, the printer and computer can communicate through the Wi-Fi access point/router. You can connect multiple printers and computers to a single Wi-Fi access point/router. Because you can prevent access by unauthorized users if you configure the security settings of the Wi-Fi access point/router, this mode can provide a higher level of security.
For more information about connecting using the Infrastructure mode, see the FAQ: "How do I connect the printer to my computer via Wi-Fi® using an access point?".
When you select this connection, wireless LAN devices in the network communicate directly with each other using secure communication without using a Wi-Fi access point/router.
For more information about connecting using the Wireless Direct mode, see the FAQ: "How do I connect my computer to the printer using the Wireless Direct mode?".
Infrastructure + Wireless Direct:
The Infrastructure mode and Wireless Direct mode can be used at the same time.
Because the printer can have SSIDs for both methods, you can print from a computer using the Infrastructure mode and print from a mobile device using the Wireless Direct mode, for example.
For more information about connecting using the Infrastructure mode + Wireless Direct mode, see the FAQ: "How do I connect the printer to my computer using both the Infrastructure mode and the Wireless Direct mode?".
