Self-Help: Networking Office Printers

Networking Office Printers

This tutorial applies to the following operating system(s):



Department machines using the TCP/IP protocol connection method can access department printers. This tutorial will guide you through networking your workstation to a department or office printer in Windows.

Step 1

If you have added a new wireless printer to your office, it can easily be networked using a connection method called TCP/IP.

Click the start button and then click Control Panel.

Step 2

Make sure your Control Panel is set to categories view and click the Printers link under Hardware and Sound.

Step 3

Click the Add a printer button at the top of the window.

Step 4

Click add a local printer option then click Next to continue.

Step 5

Click the Create a new port option. In the drop down menu click ‘Standard TCP/IP Port’, click next to continue.

Step 6

Under the Device type click Autodetect. For the Hostname or IP address enter the printer name we have provided you. Once you have this information check Query the printer and automatically select the driver to use and click next to continue.

NOTE: If the printer driver is unavailable please visit the manufacturers website to obtain information on how to add the correct printer driver for your printer.

(If you are adding the printer for first time use then please skip to step 9).

Step 7

Click the Use the driver that is currently installed (recommended) option and click next to continue.

Step 8

Enter your printer preferences, such as a desired printer name, and then set the printer as a default printer or not, click next to continue.

Step 9

Print a test page to make sure the printer is configured correctly.
If your printer does not print a test page please right click on the printer you added, delete it and run through the setup again. If you are still unable to print to your printer please contact your System Administrator or the Help Desk (208-885-4357) by phone to get assistance.
