IntelliBar Mi46 Network Printer Now Has a Wireless Solution

(7/27/17)    Hey! It's Bernie with a new update and tip on wireless technology...

Tired of stringing ethernet cable everywhere you want to place a printer? Here’s something you might try if your Wi-Fi signal reaches the location where you want to place a networked printer such as our IntelliBar Mi46 or legacy M48N100, M412N100 or M88N100. For around 50 bucks (on Amazon), purchase a NetGear AC750 Range Extender and an Ethernet cable. Once the range extender is set up (directions included), it will pick up your Wi-Fi signal and you can then use the ethernet cable to connect your printer’s ethernet port to the ethernet port on the range extender. Wah-la!

FYI… Want to know the quality of your Wi-Fi signal where you want to place the range extender and printer? Try this: download this app to your smart phone “Wifi Analyzer” (I got it from the Play Store). It will tell you nearly everything you want to know about the Wi-Fi signals present at the location.      Any questions, don't hesitate to contact us
