I had the same problem. I entered the info manually and it works. You could follow the instructions on how to do it manually in the e-manual (on the CD).
To get the IP, subnet mask, and default gateway: open a command prompt from windows. At the command prompt, type "ipconfig" without the quotes. Write down the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
For the IP, for example, if what you have from the step above is 192.168.0.100, add 10 (so that you wont have repeated IPs by auto DHCP from the router. I am assuming you have no more than 5 machines on your network.) to the last number to have 192.168.0.110 to enter manually into the printer. Use the same subnet mask and default gateway.
Hope it helps.

Did you just install a NIC (aka ethernet port) in your copier?
To print Network Multi PDL Printer Kit C1 needs to be installed. This contains the NIC and the N Boot-Rom. The copier then needs to be upgraded with networked firmware using SST.
Go into Service Mode (Additional Functions > 2,8 > Additional Functions). Go to Copier > Display > Version. Check the number for BOOT-ROM. This should have a N at the end. If not you need to replace the C BOOT-ROM with a N BOOT-ROM.
Also under Copier > Display > Version check the number for PS/PCL. If this is blank then you don't have printer drivers installed on the copier. You will need to get a technician to come out and upgrade the firmware on the machine.

Are you running a wireless access point?
If you currently have the printer connected to one computer with no access point in between then it will not find the printer. This type of network is called a Ad-hoc network and is for device to device only, not multiple devices,
For this you need a access point. Regards GM

In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Activate head cleaning before a test is taken . Sometimes it is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the PC command or can be an issue with ink drying or poor ink cartridge contacts. Sometimes the power supply unit must be checked as a poor SMPS unit can deliver low voltage and cause issues to the printer function. Check all the leads and connections of the mother board , the tags to the ink cartridge. Also check the mechanical settings of the ink cartridge , if jammed or tight remove motor and manually free the drive before it is set back.
