I will be happy to assist you with your question, but first I need a little more information.

Has this ever worked?
Does the printer have a good IP address on the router?
Are you connecting it static? Or via DHCP?

Let me know...

#1 No
#2 how do I find IP address on router
#3 Don't understand 3rd Ouestion
Well first, what procedure did you follow to attach the printer?

Did you just plug it in? Or did you configure anything on the printer for network?

Just pluged it in
The procedure for the network setup on your printer is as follows:

1. Press the Setup button.
2. Press the arrow keys until Network is highlighted, then press OK.
3. Select Advanced Setup, then select Link Speed.
4. Press the number next to the link speed that matches your network hardware (This can be found on your router. If you don't know how to get it, first try Automatic):
• 1. Automatic
• 2. 10-Full
• 3. 10-Half
• 4. 100-Full
• 5. 100-Half

To View IP settings
• Color display: To view the IP address of the device from the control panel, press
the Setup button, select Network, select View Network Settings, and then select
either Display Wired Summary or Display Wireless Summary.
• Two-line display: To view the IP address of the device, you must print the network
configuration page.

To Change IP settings
The default IP setting for the IP settings is Automatic, which sets the IP settings
automatically. However, if you are an advanced user, you might want to manually
change the IP address, subnet mask, or the default gateway.
CAUTION: Be careful when manually assigning an IP address. If you enter an
invalid IP address during the installation, your network components will not be able
to connect with the device.
1. Press the Setup button.
2. Press the arrow keys until Network is highlighted, and then press OK.
3. Select Advanced Setup, select IP Settings, and then select Manual IP Settings.
4. Press the number next to the IP setting:
• 1. IP Address
• 2. Subnet Mask
• 3. Default Gateway
5. Enter your changes, and then press OK.

If you run into trouble here, remember that your printer can be configure to be pretty smart. Set it to automatic. Then reboot.

After that, see if you can see it on your network.

You will have to map the printer differently that a local printer. Let me know if you don't know how to do this.

Under Network Set Up I only have
Print network settings
Set Link Speed
IP Settings
Restore Network Defaults


I don't understand about map the printer
OK, print out your network settings and let me know what it says.

Then I will go through the procedure for mapping a printer.
