Connecting in Direct Connect Mode (iX1300)
The ScanSnap transmits the network name (SSID) instead of a wireless access point. To connect a mobile device to the ScanSnap directly via wireless LAN, establish a connection with the network name (SSID) of the ScanSnap from the Wi-Fi settings on the mobile device.
Note that the ScanSnap does not have a wireless access point function or a router function. Therefore, a mobile device that is connected to the ScanSnap via a direct connection cannot be connected to the Internet or other devices via wireless LAN.
This section explains how to temporarily connect a mobile device to the ScanSnap manually via a direct connection.
When you turn off the ScanSnap and turn it back on, the wireless mode returns to the one that has been specified in ScanSnap Wireless Setup Tool.
To connect the ScanSnap and a mobile device via a direct connection all the time, select [Direct Connect mode] for the wireless mode in ScanSnap Wireless Setup Tool.
For details, refer to the ScanSnap Wireless Setup Tool Help.
