Connecting the Machine to Wi-Fi
Enabling Wireless LAN
To connect your machine to Wi-Fi, you first need to enable the Wireless LAN. To do this, start in the top left-hand corner of your machine and touch the Wi-Fi icon.
This will open a page that says “Wireless LAN enable” with the “off” button highlighted. Touch the word “on” to turn it blue. The next line will say “none” because you haven’t set up the connection yet.
To set up the connection, touch the “Wireless LAN setup wizard” arrow on the right side of the page. Your machine will search for all the available wireless connections, and a screen will appear showing the available routers in your location.
Select the one that works for your space, and enter the password for that router. You can change the case and add numbers as needed.
When you’re finished entering the password, touch “OK” and then “apply settings” to connect to the wireless LAN.
Connecting to a Wi-Fi Network
Once you’ve enabled the Wireless LAN, you can connect your machine to a Wi-Fi network using the My Design Snap app. Turn on your device and open the app.
Press “search” to search for machines connected to the wireless LAN. If your device is not connected, go to the settings page and connect it to the same router as your machine.
When the app finds your machine, select it and touch the line that shows your machine name to connect. A checkmark will appear, indicating that your device is connected to the machine.
You can now use the app for any application you want.
Remember to watch the video and refer to the paper that came with your machine for additional help. With these steps, you can easily connect your machine to Wi-Fi and start using the My Design Snap app.
