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!
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
Also, see here
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:
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.
