Hi @Lu15,

 

I'd like to help!

 

Press the (Menu) button > Network > Wi-Fi > Wi-Fi Default > Restore... on the control panel. The machine starts restoring default wireless network settings.

 

From the machine

 

1 Press the (Menu) button on the control panel and select Network > Wi-Fi >Wi-Fi Direct from the display screen.

2 Tap Wi-Fi Direct and enable Wi-Fi Direct.

 

Takedown the wifi direct password from your printer and then tr connect your phone using the password

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
