There are two generations of Mimio wireless. Each has a different form factor for the wireless USB receiver, also referred to as the wireless dongle. The latest Mimio wireless has a wireless receiver with a flash drive form factor, while the first generation Mimio wireless used a small black box for a wireless receiver that connected to the computer with a short mini-B USB cable.

NOTE: The wireless components from the first generation Mimio wireless are not compatible with the components from the 2nd generation Mimio wireless.

Flash drive form factor (dongle)

Plugs into your computer’s USB port and should have a solid green LED light

NOTE: A solid green LED identifies that the wireless USB receiver is receiving power, but it does not indicate a successful wireless pairing. The wireless module connected to the Mimio Xi device has two LEDs at its base. The top LED has a radio tower icon next to it—this is the wireless link status indicator, and it should be solid green (indicating a wireless link with the receiver). If the link status LED is flashing or amber, there is no connection with the wireless receiver and it may require re-pairing.The bottom LED has a pen icon next to it, which is the pen activity indicator. When a wireless link is established, this LED will flash when in an idle state; it will turn solid green when a Mimio stylus is in use. This LED will not light up.

  1. Confirm the same version of Mimio wireless components are being used together, i.e. DMA-02-03 and DMA-02-03M work together as do DMA-02-02 and DMA-02-02M. You cannot mix these. Also, confirm both components have the same 2-digit version number. This info can be found on the label on both wireless components.
  2. Unplug wireless receiver from USB port and connect into a different USB port.
  3. On the wireless receiver/dongle, depress the small button with the tip of your fingernail, pen tip, etc. until LED begins flashing (~4 seconds).
  4. Within 30 seconds, depress the recessed button beneath the power LED on the Mimio Xi device for 1 second until you hear a beep.
  5. If you are successful re-pairing the Mimio wireless components, the wireless link status LED on the Mimio Xi should turn to solid green.

Small black box form factor (dongle)

  1. There is no LED on the black box. You must stick a paperclip in the small hole on the flat face of the box and hold for 1 second.
  2. Within 30 seconds, depress the recessed button beneath the power LED on the Mimio Xi device for 1 second until you hear a beep.
  3. If you are successful re-pairing the Mimio wireless components, the wireless link status LED on the Mimio Xi should turn to solid green.
  4. The 2-digit revision code on black box must match the 2-digit revision code on the wireless module on the Mimio Xi device. You must remove the wireless module from the Mimio Xi device to view the revision code.
