Configuring Wi-Fi Settings Using Samsung Printer Diagnostics

Configuring WI-Fi Settings

Configure the printer’s Wi-Fi settings using a direct Wi-Fi connection between your computer and the printer. This will connect your computer to the printer wirelessly. The Internet connection may be lost while configuring the printer’s Wi-Fi settings.

There are two methods to configure Wi-Fi settings. One uses a direct wireless connection and the other uses a USB cable connection. SPD first runs the direct wireless connection method. The USB cable route works if the printer does not support the WWS function or if the direct WiFi connection method fails

Setting up wireless printing

Configure the wireless settings for the printer by selecting Setup Wireless Printing from the SPD main screen.

Turn on the printer

This screen reminds you to turn on the printer.

Search for a device

This screen is displayed while the SPD application checks whether the printer supports the WWS function.

The “Select a wireless printer” screen appears if the printer supports the WWS function and more than one wireless printer is detected.

Press the WPS button

This screen verifies that the selected printer is the printer you want. When you click the printer’s WPS button, the software automatically proceeds to the next step. If you do not click the printer’s WPS button within 2 minutes, a Retry button will appear.

Connecting the device

This screen appears if the printer does not support the WWS function or if the direct wireless connection method failed. You will be asked to connect a USB cable. The method via a USB cable starts automatically.

This screen lists the wireless networks accessed by the connected printer. Only wireless networks in infrastructure mode are detected. When a user clicks the Refresh button, the wireless networks are listed again.

The Wireless Network Security screen appears if the selected wireless network is a secured network.

If the security of the selected wireless network is WEP, the installer enables the Next button when a user enters a 5, 10, 13, or 26 character network password.

If the security is WPA and the user enters a key with more than 8 characters and less than 63 characters, the installer activates the Next button.

This screen appears while the application is trying to connect your printer to the wireless network.

Wireless network setting completed

This screen displays the Wi-Fi settings information (if the Wi-Fi setup was successful).

The Connection Error screen appears when the printer cannot connect to the wireless network. This can occur for the following reasons:
