Are the DR 3900 and DR 6000 spectrophotometers compatible with WiFi/WLAN?
Summary
DR 3900 and DR 6000 WiFi/WLAN compatibility
Answer
The spectrophotometer has a wired ethernet connection out of the box. In order to connect a DR 3900 or DR 6000 spectrophotometer to a WiFi Network/WLAN, a USB adapter must be used.  Hach does not carry an adapter; however, adapters based off of RealTek RTL8187, such as Netgear WG111v3 and Trendnet TEW-424UB H/W:3.1R have been found to work.  

Information on how to configure the spectrophotometer can be found in the following article:
