Note: This step is to bind the printer with the app. It is normal for the WiFi to show "connected but network not available" or"no internet", and the app may display two types of pop-up prompts:
①A pop-up window appears asking "WiFi is not available, do you want to continue using this WiFi?" Select "Use".
②A pop-up window appears asking "WiFi is not available, do you want to switch?" Select "Do not switch, continue using".
Once the printer hotspot connection is established, the app will automatically navigate to the WiFi connection page. From there, select the desired WiFi network and enter the password to complete the WiFi setup process. If your WiFi network is an open, password-free hotspot, you can connect to it without entering any password by simply selecting the WiFi hotspot and clicking "OK."
