Printer WiFi Setup

1. Download Zebra Setup Utilities

Download this free tool which will allow you to send your WiFi Name and password to the printer.

2. Connect the Printer to your computer via USB

Once the printer is successfully connected to your company's WiFi it will no longer need to be connected via USB. For now, make sure the printer is connected to the computer with Zebra Setup Utilities installed via USB.

3. Select printer within Zebra Setup Utilities

Select your printer and then click "Configure Printer Connectivity".

4. Connection Wizard

Choose Wireless, then click Next.

Click Next until you arrive at the Wireless Radio Settings. On the Wireless Radio Settings Window select USA, Canada as the WLAN Country. Then click Next .

Type in your WiFi Network name in the ESSID field. Select WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK as the security mode. Click Next.

Select String as the PSK Type. Then enter your WiFi password in the PSK name field. Click Finish.

Wait 10-15 seconds for the information to be encrypted and stored in the printers memory.

5. Reboot Printer

Turn the printer off then back on again. When you see the network icon light up geen you'll know the printer is connected to wifi. It could take up to 2 minutes.

6. Identify the Printers IP address

You'll need to add the printer's IP address in DataNinja. Hold down the "X" and "Feed" buttons on the printer at the same time for 2 seconds. The printer will print a label with its configuration settings including its current network information.

You are looking for something on the label that looks like this:
