You must set up the network protocols on your machine to use it on your
network. This chapter will show you how this is easily accomplished.
Before starting, please locate the crossover network cable and the Printer
Software Installation CD-ROM provided with your machine (;printer). You
may need to contact a network administrator or the person who has set up
your wireless network for information regarding the configuration.
If you are already aware of your machine’s IP address configuration and this
IP address is available, you may go to Configuring the machine’s
part directly. Otherwise you have to follow all steps from
Checking your Network Environments
Checking your Network Environments
Every device in a network is identified by a unique numerical address
called an IP Address. Your machine came with a default IP address of
188.8.131.52, and you can verify this by printing out a Network
Configuration Report. In most cases a new IP address will be
automatically assigned by a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration
Protocol Server) located on the network.
In a few situations the IP address must be set manually. This is called a
static IP and is often required in corporate Intranets for security reasons.
We have provided an easy to use utility program on the Printer Software
CD-ROM named SetIP that can change the address for you.
If your machine has a control panel, you may also change the IP
address using the control panel.
In an office environment, we recommend that you contact a network
administrator to set this address for you.
: An Infrastructure mode network is the most
common wireless network configuration in a home or office
consisting of a wireless router, or an access point, that connects all
the computers and other networked devices into a common local
area network (LAN).
The access point provides a special high speed connection to a
Cable or DSL modem or other wide area network (WAN) device that
connects the LAN to the Internet or a Corporate Intranet. Most
Infrastructure mode networks use a DHCP Server to automatically
This wireless setting procedure is mainly for Macintosh users.
However, Windows users can also use this procedure too, but it is
recommended to use the easier procedure. (See "Using a wireless
