Question about Ricoh Aficio 1515F Plain Paper Laser Fax
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
