If you have a network cable at hand, plug it to the RJ45 connector on the left side of the touch cash register between the two USB ports. If you do not have a cable connection available, connect the touch cash register via a wireless Wi-Fi network.

For Dotypos to function properly, it is strongly recommended that you use a stable, high-quality Internet connection, separated from other Wi-Fi networks (e.g. for guests). If you do not have a permanent internet connection, it is useful to connect the cash register to the internet at least once a week for 20 minutes for data backup and license verification. The functionality of the Internet connection is indicated by the cloud icon on the main screen.

How to activate the mobile data connection

Do not handle the data SIM card unless the cash register is turned off. If you need to eject the SIM card, turn the cash register off and push the card gently inside until you hear a click to release it. If the SIM card is not detected when inserted properly, reset the cash register or turn on and off the Airplane mode.
