Network problem with Aficio 1515f

Hi. Can you please tell me how to connect my printer via network to my laptop running vista ultimate? The printer doesnt have a USB port,but only a network port. I bought a router and installed it and the cables from laptop to router and from router to printer. The laptop just tells me that there is limited connectivity on the local network? Any idea how to fix this please?

Sounds like you have a wireless router, but are (for some reason) plugging your laptop into it, and if it's not wireless, you should return it and get a wireless one for about the same money, that will let you use your laptop from anywhere, and the setup is often easier, as it can usually all be done via the Installation CD. You can also still plug the Aficio 1515 into the router and print wirelessly to it from your laptop, once you have it configured.
Next, the Aficio 1515 printer feature included a standard usb port, so I find this a little strange.
You can download the manuals here:

The 'network settings' guide will be most helpful. The two things you primarily need to be concerned with are the "IP address", and "subnet mask". Do not use "Auto", but rather set them manually, and then configure the printer driver
If you don't have a basic understanding of IP addresses, and network printing, then you'll really need some help to complete the setup

Try turning off the printer and disconnecting power plug from wall. Hold power on button for about a minute. Then replug unit and turn power on - it should then attempt to hook up to your existing network.

If no go, try reinstalling the software that initially came with printer and was used to set up the network

There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.
