Recommended WiFi adapter

Product Name: Phaser 3250
Operating System: Windows 10 x64

Hi all,

This is the first time I write a post here. So please apologize if anything is misplaced.

I have a Phaser 3250 with RJ45 network connectivity and I'm willing to add a wired-to-wifi adapter to it, in order to use it wirelessly.


Is that possible? If so, which device should I buy?

Thanks in advance!

Hernan

Re: Recommended WiFi adapter

As this is a Xerox owned forum, the only real answer I can give is the WPSA-100.

But you could also use a more indirect method, like a wireless bridge/extender

They can be obtained from most network providers

Linksys

Netgear

TP-Link

Re: Recommended WiFi adapter

There are a couple different ways to tackle this, but here's what I'd do in your situation:

First, I'm assuming that you want to do this because you don't have a convenient ethernet port near where you want to put the printer.......

Your Phaser has a USB port in addition to the ethernet port.  I would forget that I had an ethernet port, and buy a USB wireless print server.  See the following link:

https://www.google.com/search?q=wireless+print+server&rlz=1C5CHFA_enUS813US813&oq=wireless+print+ser...

These aren't as readily-available as they were years ago, probably because more and more printers are coming with Wifi factory-installed.  If you go on ebay and search for "Wireless print server", you could possibly find a good, used one for 20 bucks or less.

Another potential option would be to use a power line networking adapter.  If your printer isn't near an ethernet jack but IS near a power outlet, this might get you to the finish line. Expect new ones of these to set you back 40-60 dollars.

Good luck!
