Before you print, ensure that your computer and the printer are plugged in, powered on, and
connected. Configure the initial settings of the printer, then install the print driver software and
utilities on your computer.
You can connect to your printer directly from your computer using USB, or connect to a network using
an Ethernet cable or wireless connection. Hardware and cabling requirements vary for the different
connection methods. Routers, network hubs and switches, modems, Ethernet cables, and USB cables
are not included with your printer and must be purchased separately. Xerox recommends an Ethernet
connection because it is typically faster than a USB connection, and it provides access to the
Embedded Web Server.

To avoid personal injury and damage to the printer, professional installation of the
printer is required.
1. Select a dust-free area with temperatures from 10°–32° C (50°–90° F), and relative humidity of

Sudden temperature fluctuations can affect print quality. Rapid heating of a cold
room can cause condensation inside the printer, which directly interferes with image
2. Place the printer on a level, solid, non-vibrating surface with adequate strength to hold the weight
of the printer. Ensure that the printer is horizontal and that all four feet are in solid contact with
the surface.
To find the weight for your printer configuration, refer to
3. Select a location with adequate clearance to access supplies and to provide proper ventilation.
