If it is a network copier then it may happens. There will be a button that provide you all information about the copier by pressing it. You will find the IP Address of the copier in this information page. Disconnect the copier from system and print the information page by pressing the button. Then connect it again.
Open internet explorer put the Present IP address in address space. Then put the new IP address in the configuration page of the copier in internet explorer.
Reboot the system and the copier.
In order to connect it to a network, you need to have the print/scan option installed. If your copier has the print/scan option, you can hook it up with an Ethernet cable and download the print driver from the Ricoh website:
it sounds as if you have an IP address conflict, are you set to Dynamic or Static? if static set the last Octet ie:192.168.0.xxx to something at the top of your ip range, print out a config sheet from the Copier/MFP by going into user tools printer config page and print.
at the bottom r/h side is the host name of the printer typically with Ricoh it will be Rnpxxxx
set the hostname on your tcp/ip port to the host name ensure that you have dns information set on the MFP and your pc and also gateway info on both and that should fix the issue once your reboot the pc and MFP.
if this resolves your issue please rate me accordingly.
It will not work to directly connect a network cable directly from the network port of the printer directly to your computer. You will have to use a cross-over cable and configure your TCP/IP settings manually. However, to utilize network printing and have internet access, you will want to get a router and connect your modem to the ethernet port of the router, then a network cable from pc to switch port on router, and a network cable from printer to a differnt switch port on router. Most consumer routers have a built in 4-port switch, so that should allow enough connections. You may want to consult a local IT company or Ricoh dealer for the rest of the setup. This will allow the framework for network printing and/or scanning.
Usually this means it was previous;y hooked up to a network, or the network settings have changed and they are mismatched. Do you use it as a printer? If not, in the user settings, (I'm not exactly sure where, but you can download a manual at ricoh.com) just set all the network settings to 0's - for example Ip address, gateway, etc. Otherwise set them correctly in order to print.
