I have the MIFI 4510 and I need to use it for accessing internet on an ipad, so that's great and all good.
Now I need to add a LAN printer to the same network as the ipad, for which i understand I will need a
Wireless router (d link D-Link DIR-635 RangeBooster N 650 Router) or a computer (windows based)
My question is How do I do that? Since the MIFI has no ports, am i able to share a network via
the router/computer and have the ipad and the mifi on the same ipaddress?
Please advise in simple language
Thank for your knowledge and time!
The easiest solution is to purchase a device like the Pepwave Surf:
The Pepwave is a wireless router and repeater all in one. It will talk to your MiFi, extend and repeat its wireless signal and provide you with the ethernet ports that you need for your network printer.
Easiest would be if you have a computer already on the wireless network just add the printer to the computer and share it via Windows (Assuming it's windows computer.) Otherwise you can configure the wireless router to be an access point for the network the MIFI has created. This would be best done by googling and following steps as it's not a total breeze but is doable.
It's a pain but unfortunately the MIFI does not allow tethering so you end up with a needless multiple hop wireless network which just adds failure points.
