Ive been tasked to find a way of making our non wireless label printers work. The current test model uses Ethernet so i initially looked at small wireless bridges.
but there is an optional USB model.. which got me thinking.
Is there a Wireless USB dongle that will work with a large infrastructure wireless lan using radius ?
I see the problem being that they are just a radio, antenna and have the encryption & modulation chip.
All the client activity i.e SSID and username / pass etc.. is done within the windows client util or 3rd part client.
of course the printer has none of this.
any device capable of doing both
also what are the obvious pitfalls ? i.e how will the printer traffic be forwarded to the usb etc..
