​​How do I connect my printer to Square?

Ensure that the printer is plugged into its electrical source.

Link one end of the Ethernet cable into Ethernet port. This is in the back of the printer, and plug the other end directly into the Wireless router.

After verifying these two connections, turn on the printer.

The printer will show a solid green LED light on the front panel. This indicates the printer has connectivity and is able to obtain an IP address from the Wireless router.
