How to activate a pairing signal on nest wifi to pair a pos printer?

Just trying to figure out if there is a pairing function so as to have our pos printers detect the nest rather than the modem.

Hello @Jose85 

Nest WiFi does not support the old WPS ("WiFi Protected Setup") since it is rather insecure. To get your point-of-sale printers connected to a new WiFi system, you'll need to investigate their configuration options directly.

Thank you , I’m rather tech deficient how would I go about doing that?

I'm afraid I can't really help with that. I would try to find a support community more specific to the brand of PoS printers you have.

Hey, Jose85.

I wanted to hop in real quickly to see if you were able to find any support on this by checking with the company that made your printer. It would be worth reaching out to their support to see if they have any known compatibility issues with Nest WiFi. If they can confirm compatibility, we can move ahead with support here.

Thanks.

Hi, everyone.
As we haven't had any activity here recently I'm going to go ahead and close the thread. If you have more to add, feel free to start a new discussion.
Thanks
