Bishop's wireless printer setup?

Post by mprusse »

What is required to allow printing to a wireless printer in the bishop's office? Haven't had success in getting this to work. Thank you!

Join the printer to the building's WiFi. You'll want to assign it a static IP address. Unless you want to risk random people printing random things to it you'll want to add security of some kind.

Is this still possible now that the WiFi has changed and you have to login from a device each day?

This worked when before they changed it to Liahona but since then I can’t seem to get the printer setup again. Suggestions, or are we out of luck?

Your stake technology specialist should know how to assign the printer so that it is not required to acknowledge the sign on splash screen.

Some printers use Direct wireless printing, which bypasses Wi-Fi and allows your device to connect directly to the printer.

As a Stake Technology specialist, yes we know how to assign the printer a static IP. That did not solve the problem for the printer I am working on. It worked on LDSAccess, it does not work on Liahona anymore, and I cannot figure out why, so if anyone has any other suggestions, I would love to hear them!

How did you assign the static IP? If you went to the device itself, you might have assigned it an IP outside of the PUBLIC range. If it's outside off 192.168.108.x to 192.169.111.x, it's not going to work.

As long as the communication is truely peer-to-peer, it shouldn't need to deal with the "NoSplash" policy. But if it needs to communicate to the internet, it will need to be added to that policy. The addition of the splash screen is the biggest difference between the old LDSAccess and Liahona.

Through the Tech Manager. I culled Church Support, turns out the printer is the responsibility of the FM group, so they are apparently working on it now.
