    Can you plug the copier into an ethernet jack and then you can use the wifi of the router to print?

    PS - You may try downloading the Wifi Analyzer app on your phone and you can see the strength of the wifi in different locations throughout the building. See video:

    That is your problem. There are many WiFi range extenders with ethernet jack available, some for under $50 such as the Netgear AC750.

    If the signal is strong enough, and clean enough, it normally works OK. The signal needs to be just about perfect.

    The problem is, by the time you jump through enough hoops to make it happy, you're normally better off to come up with a wired connection, as others have suggested.

    Re: sp c250 wifi keep discoonecting

    About 10 years ago, I had a total tool of a customer (this moron was some piece of work) go ballistic on me when the wireless option he purchased for his Segment 3 Ricoh B&W MFP kept falling off the network.

    The physical location of the MFP made it impossible to run a cable.

    All he kept insisting (between the "F" Bombs) was "the salesman said it would work". Sound familiar?

    In order to appease Sir Dipweed the salesman went out and bought a small wireless range extender, and I got to install it, about half way between the MFP and the wireless router. Since it was only about 15 feet away from the MFP, it worked well.

    Just the positioning of the antenna that came with Ricoh's internal wireless could make a difference. Ricoh recommended mounting it to the back cover. If that happened to put the frame of the copier between the antenna and the wireless router, it would constantly drop connection.

    I saw that post...I wasn't ignoring it.

    I was trying to point out (and apparently I failed) that the assumption of the salesman put me in a real ugly situation with an extremely irate customer. It was the closest I ever came to walking out on a customer and telling him to stick it.

    The salesforce had been made aware of the "limitations" of the wireless cards, but this guy chose to ignore it.

    It's a shining example of what kind of issues can be created with such a crappy product.
