    C458 customer wants a wired connection and wireless connection for printing

    Gentlemen
    Customer wants the wired network and wireless to be separated for printing. I searched for a wireless bridge that will work with the usb port on the copier. Could not find one. Is there another way?

    Just add a access point or have them get a new router that supports wireless.

    So they want WiFi Direct Printing? Most building sites like this option so sub contractors can easily print without needing the actual wifi code

    It won't be that convenient. They will need the Wi-Fi password. It is a therapy place . They want the therapists on one network and the office staff on the other. More so to reduce broadcast traffic.

    So, they'll only have 2 Wireless SSID's? And how many users will be on each wireless network?

    I agree with rthonpm about using VLANs but are there really enough users for broadcast traffic to be a concern?

    Not big enough to be a concern. 25 max users on one and maybe 5 or so on the other. I've never set up the vlan function on the c458. I not involved with the network. They are handling it. I'm just offering some advise.

    VLANS are set up @ the switch and it virtually creates separate networks thus limiting broadcast traffic to the individual VLAN. It's gonna be the most simple way to accomplish what you're trying to do. Otherwise, you'd have to install another router to contain broadcast traffic.
