Mobile Broadband

WiFi hotspot

1: Seeker

I have an iPad and want to connect it to a wireless printer. At the moment I only have mobile data, would the Vodafone r219 mobile WiFi hotspot do the job of giving me WiFi? Also could it give me WiFi on my windows 7 laptop?

Hi @Geeg 


You won't have any problems connecting your printer to the R219 mobile hotspot device but not sure about connecting the printer to the ipad but it's certainly something to try.  Please see the link below, if you scroll down to the bottom of the page you will see you are able to connect up to ten devices:  Vodafone R219 mobile hotspot 

There is also additional information from device support on the following link but although can find the R218 the R219 does not appear to be listed: Device Support 

Please also see this link: How do I use a personal hotspot to share my device’s data connection?

Hi @Geeg 


Last time i looked Apple have.....

Use AirPrint to print from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. 


 How to use AirDrop on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch which I appreciate isn't exactly what your looking for.

I'd certainly promote a Google Search and have a look on the Apple Official Forum too.

Your windows Laptop will need WiFi turning On and then it should then automatically pick up the connection for you to then accept.

On a side note When using a Hotspot / WiFi connection please take into consideration that a data allowance can be used faster as some devices can access more feature rich pages and can be used faster as the device connected to works in the background updating itself etc.
