There may be some cases where you experience issues with some core Lightspeed features like;

  • Lightspeed shows a red WiFi symbol on the POS
  • Some payments from Integrated Payments are not completing on POS
  • Some Online Ordering transactions are failing, particularly when using PassThruPrinting

One of the areas that can help with this is the DNS Settings on your device

6. Finally, tap on Save.
