It is actually a shortcut in the sense of the word in lieu of the more cumbersome standard connection method. This is designed for users to do away with the hassle and just plug the devices, push the WPS button and print.

First, take a critical look at the WiFi access points or sometimes referred to as routers or hubs. The router must have a WPS button available otherwise, the user will have no other option but follow the standard connection method.
Most WiFi network use a WPA (WiFi Protected Access) or WPA2 security protocol and to connect is as detailed below:
- Once the printer is turned on press and hold the WiFi button usually found on top of the printer for a few seconds until the orange alarm flashes once and release.
- Wait for the WiFi button to start to flash blue, then proceed to the access point and press the WPS button within the next 2 minutes.
- The blue WiFi lamp on the printer will continue to flash while searching for or try to connect to the access point. At anytime the green power lamp will also start flashing and once connection is made to the wireless network, flashing stops while both lamps stays lit.
- A password is required to enable quick and easy access of connecting the devices.
