Step 7: Connect the POS-X to your Network

NOTE: you must supply your own ethernet cable (also known as a “CAT-5” or “Network” cable, and looks like a fat telephone cable) for each POS station’s connection to your network router.
.
Keep in mind that each station’s cable must be long enough to reach your network router- they are usually sold in lengths of 6, 12, 25 and 50 feet. We do not recommend using wireless connections POS-X stations.


Plug in the ethernet cable to the LAN jack at the bottom of the POS-X.

IMPORTANT: do NOT connect the network cable in to one of the four “COM” ports, those are used for other purposes!

Then plug the other end of the ethernet cable into your network router.
