How to connect tablet to a Wi-Fi printer?
Connect your tablet to the same Wi-Fi as the printer connecting.
Enable Wi-Fi connection on the printer. Before you do any operation on your tablet, you have to enable Wi-Fi connection on the printer. Because different printers have different operating mode, it’s better for you to check the manual of your printer and learn how to enable Wi-Fi connection.
Check Wi-Fi connection on your tablet. Your tablet will automatically scan for wireless printers that are available through a Wi-Fi connection. You can check by tapping the Setting icon on home screen and then tapping Wi-Fi in the menu on the left side of the Setting screen.
Choose the Wi-Fi printer in the list to connect it. If the printer requires a password for you to use, you may need to get the password from the printer itself when you enable the printer’s Wi-Fi connection. If the printer doesn’t require a password, then you can connect directly. After your tablet connects to a printer, you will see “Connected” underneath the printer name in the Wi-Fi connections list.
Tips: 1. If your tablet doesn’t recognize the wireless printer, you may need to bring your tablet closer to the printer.
2. If still cannot be connected, you can scan for the printer again by tapping Scan in the Settings menu bar that appears at the top of the screen. Or close and reopen Wi-Fi setting on your tablet.
