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.

SteadyLAN is available for mC-Print models: mCP21LB, mCP31L and mCP31LB, sold in iZettle Hardware webshop.
