How to shut off wireless capabilities on wireless printers

Because Wireless Printers are becoming more and more common and they are not allowed to broadcast wireless signal on campus due to the interference they cause with APUWIFI, it is important to know how to turn the wireless capabilities of your wireless printer. Each printer will vary slightly in the method needed to disable the wireless capabilities, but generally printers fall into one of the two following categories:

Physical Button

The first method of disabling wireless capabilities to attempt is to look for a physical wireless button on the printer.

This button might have an icon that looks like this:  wifi.png 

Network Settings

If there does not appear to be a physical wireless button on the printer, it's possible that it is control via a software setting. Try to go to "Settings" or "Configure" and look for "Network Settings" or "Network Setup" folders. One of these folders should have the option to disable wireless capabilities.

 

We understand that there may be some confusion on how to disable the wireless function on your particular device, and we are willing to work with you to make the best APUWIFI experience possible for all students.  If you need assistance verifying that this feature is disabled, please call the IMT Support Desk at 626-815-5050 or email us at support@apu.edu
