Wi-Fi communication has become popular, now built-in to PCs by default, Wi-Fi routers becoming cheaper to
attract end users and many PC peripheral devices now available.
In order to satisfy this demand in the market, Canon is pleased to launch a new model of the DR-C125 with
Wi-Fi capability added. This new product means users can scan straight to a tablet device/wireless enabled
PC, making scanning even more convenient and quick.
DR-C125W & WU-10 work on two different Wireless connections:
1. Access Pointmode
Where LAN is not available, set Access Point mode. The DR-C125W/WU-10 itself
becomes the access point and establishes direct communication with devices such
as an iPhone.
(AP mode is the factory-default setting. Note it is not possible to access the
internet from the PC/Tablet via DR-C125W/WU-10 working as Access Point. This
means neither Scan-to-Mail nor Scan to Cloud service are not possible on Access
Point mode. Save the scanned image to the PC/tablet, terminate connection with
the DR-C125W/WU-10 to connect to the internet to complete Scan-to-Mail or Scanto-
With this mode, the DR-C125W/WU-10 communicates with the PC, iOS or Android
device via access point in a network environment.
The scanner can be shared with multiple computers on the same network via
the access point, although only one can connect to the scanner at a time.
In order to build a connection in Station mode without WPS, you need to
connect using AP mode first, then switch to Station mode after you have
changed the Wi-Fi setting.
Up to 5 access points can be registered on the DR-C125W/WU-10. The DRC125W/
WU-10 searches active access points in numerical order to build a
connection when turned on.
This utility means you can perform the following operating settings on the DR-C125W:
Settings related to the connection and disconnection of the computer to the device
Switching Access Point mode and Station mode
Once you establish a Wi-Fi connection with the ScannerWireless Connection Utility, ISIS/TWAIN applications,
which are used with USB connection, work in a wireless network as well without any changes in operation.
Only one PC/Tablet device can build a wireless connection to the DR-C125W at a time. If another user is using
the scanner, an alert will appear asking them to disconnect so that the new user is able to connect.
It is not possible to switch the connection mode between Access Point mode and Station mode in
CaptureOnTouch Mobile. This has to be done in the ScannerWireless Connection Utility.With Station mode, the
DR-C125W and PC/Tablet device need to be connected under the sameWi-Fi network.
