NFC removal/unplug

Product Name: VersaLink B405 Multifunction Printer
Operating System: Windows 10 x64

Hello all,

I am trying to remove any capability for the VersaLink B405 to network via wireless means. This is specific to my buisness network security policy.

These printers were bought before my time and Im trying to not buy another set.

I am thinking these printers are like labtops/PC's which have a wireless chip on the motherboard which can be removed.

Looking at the control board I do not see a wireless chip that looks simular but I do see alot of connected power and data cables. Does anyone have a diagram detailing the control board so I could identify the NFC part of the board or even atleast the NFC control board cable? I havnt been able to find a control board diagram detailing the connections. (dont want to disconnect other functions, just NFC).

Note* Software shutoff is not acceptible to our policy. Has to be phiscally disconnected Wireless conneciton.*

Would appreaciate any help.

Re: NFC removal/unplug

Cathy,

I dont have a WIFI adapter pluged into the printer. I was wondering how to remove the NFC hardware. That being said, is the NFC capability tied to the WIFI adapter?

If thats the case then even though users can turn the option on/off in the printer software it wouldnt matter becuase theirs no WIFI adapter. Right?

Look forward to your reply.

Hello Derek,

There is no way to print over wifi without the Network Adapter installed for this device.

Re: NFC removal/unplug

Ok,

Just to be clear though, Near Field Communication (NFC) is different from WIFI. I understand that not having the WIFI adapter will completly disable WIFI but, does that WIFI adapter dicate the NFC capability?

Hello Derek,

I do not know the answer to that. I would recommend calling support and asking to speak to a Network Specialist: 1-800-821-2797
