STA Mode

It’s not recommend to access the printer’s built-in WIFI with multiple devices at the same time, that may make online printing unstable. It’s recommend to add the printer to your WLAN in STA mode. Computers, mobile phones or other devices can connect to mostfun Pro through LAN, which is more stabler than AP Mode supporting more terminals.

Notes: Please use AP mode to configure in Mostfun Panel first. 

 

Setting WIFI

On the printer control page, select “Setting- WIFI settings”. You can view current STA connections, which are null by default.

 

Searching WIFI

Click “Refresh” button on the right side of “Available WIFI”, to scan nearby wireless access points.

Connecting

Choose an access point and click “Connect”. Connect the printer to that wireless network, and then connect a computer or smartphone to the same access point, to access Mostfun Pro on the same LAN.

After those steps above, it should high light the “STA mode” in “Connection information” on the printer’s screen. After entering STA mode, you can see information similar to the aforementioned “AP mode”. Then you could access the printer by typing the IP address in the browser of the computer on the same LAN.

Now, reconnect a computer, tablet or other devices to the same SSID wireless network (SSID in STA information bar). Open a browser and enter the IP address above (IP address in STA information bar), to connect to Mostfun Panel.

Tips: Smart devices on the same LAN can also log in Mostfun Panel by scanning QR code. Devices with bonjour service can also access Mostfun Panel by type in “xxx (device name).local”.
