Connecting Directly

Even in an environment without a wireless LAN router, you can still directly connect your mobile device to the machine via "Access Point Mode" or "Wi-Fi Direct," which enable connections between the device and the machine without the need to configure complicated settings. With the Access Point Mode, you can connect even more easily by using Bluetooth or NFC.
Optional products are required to use Bluetooth or NFC. System Options
