      • Then click "FreeX Setup" and another window will open

      • You will be in the "WiFi" tab

      • In the "SSID (2.4GHz)" type in your WiFi name, make sure to be very careful since this is case sensitive, the 2.4GHz is referring to the WiFi frequency the FreeX is compatible with 
      •  "WPA-PSK/Wha2-PSK" should be marked, for type "WPA2-PSK" should be marked and for encryption "AES" should be marked as well, double check these are all correct, then in "PSK Key" type in your WiFi password (Case sensitive)
      • Then click "Set," and it should say "Sync Success and Next Steps" and a label with the WiFi Configuration information will come out. Here you will also get more information about what you just completed and where to go next. 

       

      • Double check that the WiFi name and WiFi password are correct on the piece of paper 
      • Then click the "Ethernet" tab

      • Make sure "DHCP" is picked and for "DHCP" make sure it says "Enable," these should be set like this already. Then press "Set" and  "Printer Restart Required" should appear on the screen, if the it says "Set Failed" restart your printer and start the process from the beginning 

       

      • Turn the printer off and on, then the printer will beep. Within a minute a label should print out with the WiFi connection details, the printer is now connected to your WiFi. The information on the label gives you the IP address that will be used shorty
