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 mode, wireless LAN devices in the network communicate directly with each other without using a Wi-Fi access point/router.
However, this connection provides a lower level of network security and the network performance is slower than when using a Wi-Fi access point/router.
You cannot connect using the Ad-hoc mode for Windows 8.1 or later.
