Checking your Network Environments

IP address

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, 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.

Wireless Networks

Infrastructure mode

: 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

network(Windows/CLX-3175FW only)" on page 27.)
