  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-3300, select “Ricoh” by clicking on it, then click the “Forward” button at the bottom to go to the next step.

  5. In the window that appears, select the model of the printer you are using. For example, for the Ricoh Aficio SP-3300, click on “SP 3300” on the left side to make sure that it is selected, then click the “Forward” button at the bottom.

  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.

  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”.

  9. That’s it! You should now be able to print on your classroom printer. Close the window and continue enjoying the use of your netbook.
