Connecting your iPhone or iPad to the internet via your printer
What is SteadyLAN?
SteadyLAN is a new technology that allows you to charge your device and get a stable internet connection all by connecting to an mC-Print printer.
Connect your iPad or iPhone to the mC-Print printer with a lighting cable and then connect the printer to a modem with a LAN cable. Data will be transferred from the modem, through the printer to your device, making poor wifi connectivity a thing of the past.
The power cable plugged into your printer will also allow you to charge your iPad or iPhone through the lightning cable.
When and why should I use SteadyLAN?
For locations where wifi connectivity is not possible or unreliable, a cabled internet solution will ensure a stable connection and with SteadyLAN your device will charge at the same time.
