Remember to secure Wi-Fi enabled devices against intruders

Posted by Thomas Dickson May 8, 2014 at 3:00 PM

If you’re anything like me, you’ve embraced the convenience of smart devices in the home – gone are the days of plugging the computer into the printer or asking friends to tape your favourite shows. Now, a Wi-Fi connection means everything can be done remotely. But have you taken the necessary steps to secure Wi-Fi enabled printers, TVs, game consoles and other domestic devices?

In shocking news last week, a US family revealed its baby monitor had been hacked by an online intruder who gained access by using a default manufacturer’s login. The intruder was able to pan the baby monitor to spy on the family and speak directly to the toddler, raising alarm bells about the security of other devices around the home.

Cutting The Ties: The Wireless Printing Movement

Posted by Thomas Dickson December 5, 2013 at 9:39 PM

 

In today’s mobile world the internet is a significant part of everyday life, both at home and at work. The way we use and access the internet has changed dramatically over the last 20 years; move over dial-up connections, now we’re talking Wi-Fi and 4G.

As a nation we’re addicted to electronic devices and the internet. Can you remember the last time you went an entire weekend without browsing the web? I certainly can’t.

The number of electronic devices in the average Australian household is growing. Whether it’s PCs, laptops, smartphones, tablets or printers; we’re a gadget loving gang. In fact, according to a recent survey carried out by Fuji Xerox Printers, by the end of the year 86 per cent of Australians predict they will have at least one device connected to the Wi-Fi in their homes and over 20 per cent will connect more than five devices. That’s a lot of technology!

How we print in Australia: An interactive view of our printing habits

We live in a world where smartphones, tablets and laptops are part of our life now. In fact, most of us feel a little stressed if we don’t have a screen of some kind in front of us feeding us news, keeping us in touch with friends and colleagues or recording our life experiences.

I think I hear someone say once a week at least, ‘My entire life is stored on my phone!’ It’s simultaneously horrifying and fascinating just how connected we are to our gadgets.

Working From Home – No Need To Compromise On Print Quality

Posted by Michelle Rochford March 14, 2013 at 11:13 PM

 

There has been much talk in the media recently about working remotely and productivity. To avoid the wrath of the boss and raised eyebrows from colleagues, those working from home must deliver the same output as they would in their employer’s office environment.

There is a misconception that working remotely means being without the high performance, equipment typically found in a busy office. The good news is, when it comes to printers, some of the advanced features of large office devices are now packed into smaller printers which are within affordable reach of the home office worker.

  • Assess: If you’re looking for a new printer the first step is to identify your needs. Do you need high quality colour fast or will you mostly be printing large volumes in black and white? What about the ability to print double-sided (duplex) or on different sized paper or envelopes? Is an environmentally friendly solution important to you? Do you need to be able to copy, scan and fax as well? Would you like to be able to print wirelessly from your laptop, smartphone or tablet? Make a list of all the features you would like and decide on your budget.

Wireless Printing Made Easy – New Video Tutorials Help 1000 Customers and Counting

Ahh, Wi-Fi. The technology that promises so much, yet frustrates so many.

In essence, Wi-Fi enables an ever-growing range of electronic devices such as PCs, printers, smartphones, tablets, stereo systems, televisions and more to connect and exchange data wirelessly.

In our modern world full of tangled wires and power cords, the benefits of Wi-Fi are clear. Wireless connections between devices mean we can be more mobile, reduce technical clutter in our homes and businesses and realise the benefits of having all our gadgets ‘talk’ to one another… if only it was always that simple!

One of the most common questions our Support Centre receives is “how can I connect wirelessly with my printer?” Printers with in-built Wi-Fi are becoming more and more popular with over 20 percent of laser printers sold in Australia now having wireless capabilities. Wireless printers are easy to share (making them perfect for an upwardly mobile workforce or laptop-loving family) and can reside just about anywhere you wish, within reach of the Wi-Fi signal from your router of course.That’s why we had to find a way to help make setting up Wi-Fi on your Fuji Xerox printer easier.
