|Re: [PLUG] [lopsa-tech] Network Issue and Printer Issue|
This seems like the sort of thing where you should get a new wireless-capable printer, on "someone else's budget".Whoever spec'ed the budget for this conversion *must* have known there would be some "wired-only devices" which would need to be upgraded/replaced to be compliant, and have built a line-item into their budget for such replacements.D right?On Aug 29, 2014, at 8:47 AM, john boris <email@example.com> wrote:Good Day to the list. Outside of $WORK I coach Football at my Alma Mater. I am the Teams "IT" guy. I have outfitted the coaches office with a wireless router as there was only one drop in that office and the closest access point was on the other side of the gym and if you sneezed it went to zero bars. It also allowed us to have a network printer for the office. Everyone could connect their own device in that office.The High School decided it was going completely wireless, yes no wired connections in any office. I met the worker on the job yesterday and they are severing all wired drops and putting access points everywhere. I believe Aerohive. He claims we will get 450+mb speeds. Caveat with the correct equipment on the users end.Anyway this will break my little setup in the coaches office and we are on our own. S when this happens even though we will have an access point in that office I now have to figure out an economical way to get us printing in that office.The printer we have is an HP All-in-one 7300. (It cost me $30 at a yard sale 5 years ago and still runs like a champ) I am torn between replacing the printer with a newer one that is wireless or find some other economical way to connect the printer to the wireless network. Any ideas?--John J. Boris, Sr._______________________________________________
