How to set up backup communications (Wi-Fi + Ethernet)

This article covers how to set up backup communications with your Poynt smart terminal.

To set up backup communications, complete the following:

1. Connect an Ethernet cable into the base.

2. Connect the same Ethernet cable into a modem, router, or switch.

3. Connect the terminal to Wi-Fi. For more information on how to connect your terminal to Wi-Fi, refer to How to connect to Wi-Fi.

Note: The Wi-Fi network must be password protected for Poynt to connect to it.

Poynt Smart Terminals will automatically switch to Ethernet if the Wi-Fi connection is lost and the terminal is on the base.
