Can my Genius device and POS share a network connection?

Yes. If you do not have enough Ethernet ports on your router, you can insert the network cable from your POS into your Genius device, instead of inserting it into your router. This means your POS and your Genius device can share a single network connection.

You can attach your network cable to the communications module or the multiport cable, depending on how you have set up your Genius device. For more information about setting up your Genius device, visit:

Attaching the network cable to the communications module

  1. Insert one end of your network cable into one of the available Ethernet ports on your communications module.
  2. Insert the other end of your network cable into your POS.
