Ethernet Connectivity for Tablet POS

Star’s unique SteadyLAN™ technology makes unstable Wi-Fi signals a thing of the past!

Star’s unique SteadyLAN technology is the market’s first solution to provide control of the POS printer and attached peripherals as well as Ethernet provision to tablets and mobile devices via the wired Ethernet port of the printer.  This includes iOS devices with Star’s mCP21LB, mCP31L, mCP31LB printers and supported Android, Windows and Mac devices with Star’s new mCP31C and mCP31CB printers.

Simply by connecting a tablet to the mC-Print printer via the standard Lightning USB or USB-C cable and connecting the printer to the internet via a wired LAN connection, the tablet is able to connect to the internet without WiFi communication. At the same time, the tablet can communicate with the printer via USB or LAN and the printer will also charge the tablet.

For locations where WiFi connectivity is not possible or unreliable, the stability of a cabled internet connection combined with the flexibility of Tablet POS is now possible.

SteadyLAN is available on the following mC-Print printer models: mCP21LB, mCP31L, mCP31LB, mCP31C and mCP31CB.


  • SteadyLAN™ provides direct cabled control of the printer and attached peripherals including iOS, Android, Windows and Mac devices.
  • Ethernet provision to tablets and mobile devices, from the wired Ethernet port of the printer.
  • Device charging from the printer
  • Available free of charge on mCP21LB, mCP31L, mCP31LB, mCP31C and mCP31CB with firmware version 2.3 or later, which is available free of charge via the mC-Print Utility application.
  • iOS10 or later required
