  1. If the Handy Scan can’t be connected, then please try other methods:

Method One - use a phone as a bridge. (I use an iPhone as an example):

(1) Open your phone and click “Setting” → “General”;

(2) Click “About”;

(3) Change the Name to “POP”;

(4) Open Setting →“Personal Hotspot”;

(5) WLAN Password to be: 12345678;

(6) Wait for 10s for POP to connect this hotspot; (A blue signal appears after it is connected)

(7) Then open your PC, and find the WLAN/Wi-Fi named “POP”, connect it after type in the password “12345678”;

(8) Open “Handy Scan” and wait for a while.

Method Two - use a router as a bridge .

(1) Connect the POP via USB mode on your laptop, and revise the hotspot name and password according to your router. (For example, if the name of your router is AAA, the password is BBB, then you can revise the POP’s default name and password to AAA and BBB.)

(2) Unplug the POP and insert it into a power bank (over 5V1A).

(3) Click “Setting” - “Network & Internet” - “Wi-Fi” - connect to the “AAA”;

(4) Open “Handy Scan” and wait for a while.

hello, the scanner connects to the mobile hotspot but from the handyscan software it always gives me the same answer that it is not connected.
even if in the information tab I set the correct credentials to the wifi button, see attached image

Hi @BlackLake

I need to discuss with our product team, and will let you know if we found what’s wrong.
