Claim of US Patent No. 10,251,204

1. A method for quick configuration of Wi-Fi connection of output device, comprising:a) retrieving a plurality of access point data respectively corresponding to a plurality of Wi-Fi access points based on a Wi-Fi protocol at a computer device;
b) selecting one of the pluralities of the access point data;
c) executing a transcoding process to the selected access point data for transforming the access point data from a first coding format into a second coding format supported by the output device;
d) generating configuration data according to the transcoded access point data;
e) establishing a heterogeneous connection with the output device based on a heterogeneous protocol, wherein the heterogeneous protocol is different from the Wi-Fi protocol;
f) transmitting the configuration data to the output device via the heterogeneous connection; and
g) establishing a first Wi-Fi connection with the corresponding Wi-Fi access point based on the Wi-Fi protocol according to the transmitted configuration data at the output device;
wherein each access point data comprises an SSID corresponding to the Wi-Fi access point.
