what have you tried to do and what issues are you running into?

Expert:  Robert M. replied 1 year ago.

looks like the easiest way to do it is to

run the install software on the computer and then tell it that it is a network printer and attach a usb cable between the printer and the computer while the install runs

it says to put the usb cable on first but my experience is that you are better off starting the install and letting it tell you it cant find the printer attach the cable

that keeps windows from installing it as a usb printer.

step by step instructions are on this page
