  • Page 55: Networking, Installing The Printer On A Wireless Network

    Wireless network compatibility Your printer contains an IEEE 802.11g wireless print server. Your printer is compatible with IEEE 802.11 b/g/n routers that are Wi-Fi certified. If you are having issues with an n router, verify with your router manufacturer that the current mode setting is compatible with g devices, as this setting varies depending on the router brand/model.

    Note: If your network uses WPA or WPA2 security, then select WPA Personal when you are prompted to select the type of security your network uses. Printing a network setup page A network setup page lists the configuration settings of the printer, including the IP address and MAC address of the printer. Load plain paper.

  • Page 57

    Installing the printer on other computers Once the printer is set up on the wireless network, it can be accessed wirelessly by any other computer on the network. However, you will need to install the printer driver on every computer that will access it. You do not need to configure the printer again, although you will need to run the setup software on each computer to install the driver.

  • Page 58

    If you want to assign a static IP address to your printer, do the following: Complete the wireless setup, allowing the printer to receive a DHCP address from a DHCP server on the network. Print a network setup page to see what IP address is currently assigned to the printer.

  • Page 59: Advanced Wireless Setup

    Enter. The printer Web page loads if the address was successfully assigned. For more information, contact your system support person. Changing wireless settings after installation To change wireless settings on the printer, such as the configured network, the security key, or other settings, do the following: Click or Start.

  • Page 60

    Follow the instructions in the “Set up a wireless ad hoc network” wizard. As part of the setup: Create a network name or SSID for the network between the computer and your printer. Write down the name of your network. Be sure to use the exact spelling and capitalization.

  • Page 61

    Adding a printer to an existing ad hoc wireless network Note: The printer can communicate on only one wireless network at a time. Configuring the printer for an ad hoc wireless network will remove it from any other wireless network, either ad hoc or infrastructure, for which it is configured.

    WPS. In order to use WPS to configure the printer, the wireless router must also support WPS. If you want to use WPS to set up your printer, then insert the CD and follow the instructions on the computer screen.

  • Page 63: Networking Faq

    Select Local Port, and then click New Port. Type the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) Port name, which consists of the server name and the distinctive printer name that was specified in step 2 on page 62. The name should be in the form \\server \printer.

  • Page 64

    Look for any of these identifier marks to check if your device is WPS certified: You can find these WPS logos on the side, back, or top of your access point or router. Where do I find my WEP key or WPA passphrase? To find the WEP key or WPA passphrase for the wireless network, view the security settings on the access point or wireless router.

  • Page 65

    How do I find out what type of security my network is using? You must know the WEP key or WPA passphrase and the type of security (WEP, WPA, or WPA2) used on the wireless network. To obtain this information, see the documentation that came with your wireless access point (wireless router), see the Web page associated with the wireless access point, or consult your system support person.

  • Page 66

    Why do I need an installation cable? When setting up the printer on your wireless network, the printer will need to temporarily connect to a computer using the installation cable. This temporary connection is used to set up the wireless settings of the printer.

  • Page 67

    How do I attach the installation cable? The installation cable attaches to a USB port on the computer and to the square connector on the back of the printer. This connection allows you to configure the printer for a networked or locally attached installation.

  • Page 68

    The strength of the signal received by your computer can also affect the connectivity of the printer with the network during configuration. When you installed the wireless adapter in your computer, the adapter software probably placed an icon in your system tray.

  • Page 69

    OVE THE PRINTER CLOSER TO THE WIRELESS ACCESS POINT If the printer is too far away from the access point, it will not be able to communicate with other devices on the network. For most indoor wireless networks, the maximum distance between the access point and the printer is approximately 100 feet (30 meters).

  • Page 70

    If the SSIDs are the same, then the computer and the printer are connected to the same wireless network. If the SSIDs are not the same, then run the utility again to set up the printer on the wireless network used by the computer.

    This is called MAC filtering. If MAC filtering is enabled in your access point and you want to add a printer to your network, then the MAC address of the printer must be included in the MAC filter list.

  • Page 72

    How are IP addresses assigned? An IP address may be assigned automatically by the network using DHCP. Once the printer is set up on a computer, the computer sends all print jobs across the network to the printer using this address.

  • Page 73: Maintaining The Printer, Maintaining Ink Cartridges
