    Google mesh network and non wireless MFP

    Hello, customer has a Sharp MX-M453n which is a little older,no wireless. Customer is getting a google mesh network,which I have never heard of. From reading up about it,it looks like this copier wont work with google mesh. I am wondering if anybody that knows about google mesh if the copier can be hard wired to one of the mesh routers or if there is some other kind of workaround to be able to use this machine. Thanks for any help on this issue.

    Adding LAN ports to Wifi point - Google Wifi Help

    This suggests the primary point will have a LAN port.

    Otherwise buy a cheap wifi antenna and connect it to network then connect it to the copier by network cable.

    A WIFI range extender with a wired port works nicely. Netgear N300 WiFi Range Extender Model EX2700 works nicely and be found at numerous places for less than $50.

    In fact a mesh network is merely and number of dual band routers/extenders working together to eliminate dead spots. Each router/extender normally includes at least one available port so if the Sharp is near one of those you might be able to connect to it.

    All the Google Mesh will be are some access points, at least one of them will still connect back to a switch/router so I'd just leave the copier plugged into that.
