  2. In the window that opens up, select "Add a printer or scanner" at the top of the list of currently installed printers.

  3. Your device will attempt to search for devices on the network, which you can ignore. Wait for 5-10 seconds, and select "The printer that I want isn't listed" at the bottom of the list.

  4. In the next window that pops up, select the "Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or hostname" option, and click Next.

  5. Next, type in the hostname of the printer. The hostname, for most networked printers, should be on a label adhered to the front or top of the printer. If the hostname doesn't have a domain after it, you will need to add it (The domain is structured as follows: SiteInitials.lvusd.org - Ex. lvdo.lvusd.org). Then hit Next.

    a. If your computer finds the printer drivers, you can continue on to the Printer Name page. If not, you will need to use Windows Update to find drivers. The window that appears for driver installation should have two columns. On the left, select the Manufacturer of the printer (ie. HP, Dell, Brother, etc). On the right, scroll through and find the Model of your printer (ie. (HP)Laserjet P1505, (Dell)B2360dn, etc).

  6. Next, type in a name for the printer. Make it something easy to recognize so you can find it easily in a list. Hit Next.

  7. When asked about Printer Sharing, make sure to select the "Do not share this printer" option. Hit Next.

  8. Now your printer should be all setup. On the final screen you can choose to print a test page, or simply complete the process by clicking on Finish.


Printer Install

  1. Open System Preferences and navigate to "Printers & Scanners"

  2. Underneath the list of available printers already on your Mac, clickon the plus sign to add another printer.

  3. On the top menu bar of this next window, make sure that "IP" is selected, and that under protocol is says "HP Jetdirect - Socket".

    a. On the "Address" line type in the hostname of the printer you wish to add (usually found on a label adhered to the front of the printer):

  4. After several seconds a message should appear under the IP address you just added saying that it is a "Valid and complete host name or address." and the proper driver for the printer should appear next to the "Use:" line.

    a. (If it says Generic Driver, click on the dropdown menu and select "Select Software". In the window that pops up, type the model name of your printer and select it from the list of available drivers. If you cannot find your printer model, place a work order.)

    b. At this point is a good idea to give the printer an intuitive name that you will be able to recognize later.

    c. Click Add. (If the setup takes more than a few seconds, select "Configure", then "OK" to manually complete installation.)

Printer Install

  1. First, we need to open the printer setup by: 1) Click on "Applications" in the upper-right, 2) begin typing "printers" and 3) select the "Printers" app (see below).

    image

  2. Next, click on the "Add" button at the top of the window that appears.

    image

  3. Now you will see the printer setup wizard (see below). Click first on "AppSocket/HP JetDirect" (see "1" below), then enter the name of your printer in the "Host:" box on the right. (The hostname of the printer will be provided along with these instruction) Don't worry about capitalization, it is not case-sensitive. Click on the "Forward" button at the bottom when this is complete.

  4. After a few moments of searching for a printer driver, your computer will show you the "Choose a driver" screen (see below). Scroll down in the list and select the make of your printer. For example, if you have a Ricoh Aficio SP-3400, select "Ricoh" by clicking on it, then click the "Forward" button at the bottom to go to the next step.

    image

  5. In the window that appears, select the model of the printer you are using. For example, for the Ricoh Aficio SP-3400, click on "SP 3400" on the left side to make sure that it is selected, then click the "Forward" button at the bottom.

    image

  6. In the next screen, do not change anything, just click the "Forward" button at the bottom.

    image

  7. The next screen will ask you to "Describe Printer". You can leave this the way it is if you want, but I prefer to put in a short name for the printer so I can remember which one this netbook is printing to, just in case the netbook finds its way to a different classroom. To do this, enter the same printer name you used in the steps above under "Printer Name" and click the "Forward" button.

    image

  8. Finally, the system will ask you if you want to print a test page. We prefer not to waste the paper, so we recommend clicking on "No".
