Doxie Q has built-in 802.11n wireless networking capabilities – to connect, use your computer or device with built-in Wi-Fi. Doxie creates its own wireless network, and can also join compatible networks in your home or office.
To use Doxie’s direct network, you need a Mac, PC, iPhone, or iPad with built-in Wi-Fi capabilities that can join Doxie’s standard 802.11b/g/n wireless network.
Doxie can also join your existing home or wireless network, so you don’t have to change networks to sync scans wirelessly. Doxie supports most consumer Wi-Fi networks. In this mode, Doxie offers Dual Wi-Fi for mobile connectivity: if you turn on Doxie away from your home or office network, Doxie reverts to creating its own network so you can sync your scans.
Doxie has similar requirements to most non-computer Wi-Fi devices. To join your home or office network, the network must meet these basic requirements:
- 802.11b, 802.11g, or 802.11n 2.4GHz wireless network
- Password types: Open, WEP, WPA Personal, WPA2 Personal. Non-computer devices like Doxie can’t connect to Wi-Fi networks with special/enterprise credential requirements (username login, certificates, etc.)
- IP address allocated by DHCP or manual entry
- Doxie and your base station must be close enough to see each other without interference (suggested up to 25-30 meters away)
What if my home or office Wi-Fi network doesn’t meet Doxie’s network requirements?
Use Doxie’s direct network to sync scans. When Doxie isn’t joined to a network, it creates its own network you can connect to from any device.
