I installed a router I found in the cabinet (white NeatGear WGR614) in
the M76 lab and connected the laser to it. It is till connected to the
host PC via USB so that part didn't change. I'm assuming the Epilog can
accept jobs from both ports. If not, I'll look into the Epilog
How to connect to the M76 WiFI network:

>> Hello Everyone,
>> Thanks to everyone for the work arounds on the laser in this confusing and troublesome troubleshooting.
>> In terms of network access to the laser cutter I agree that it is much more agreeable and productive work flow if you can send files directly from your laptop.
>> There is no network access in the M76 room, but it seems that we could set up a wireless hub for the sole purpose of giving access to the laser cutter and this would allow any one interested in having direct access without having to rewire anything.
>> If someone is interested in setting up a router that the cutter can be accessed through please let us know. The installation of the necessary print driver is fairly easy on your personal computer, and all of the instruction are in the manual.
>> The laser will likely not be going out into the community any time soon, so any set up will remain intact for a while.
>> The list of settings has also become quite long. If there is someone also interested in participating in a clean up of this that would be great.
