  2. Configure the settings.

    • Enable Wi‑Fi Direct—Enables the printer to broadcast its own Wi‑Fi Direct network.
    • Wi‑Fi Direct Name—Assigns a name for the Wi‑Fi Direct network.
    • Wi‑Fi Direct Password—Assigns the password for negotiating the wireless security when using the peer‑to-peer connection.
    • Show Password on Setup Page—Shows the password on the Network Setup Page.
    • Auto-Accept Push Button Requests—Lets the printer accept connection requests automatically.
    • Note:  Accepting push‑button requests automatically is not secured.

  3. Note:  To know the password of the Wi-Fi Direct network, print the Network Setup Page. From the home screen, touch Settings > Reports > Network > Network Setup Page.
