Installing OKI c3400n in Windows 7 32 bit

The c3400n does not have its own wireless capability. It must be connected to a wireless print server or to some wired network that has a wireless access point (WAP) connected to it. A third option is to use a home-networking wireless router.

Individual PCs must have wireless capability also, or they can't print over wireless.

Somewhere along the line the printer must get a local network IP address, i.e. PCs usually use Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to get an IP address.

But printers are usually manually set to a 'static' IP, because static IPs don't change over time.

Usually there is a security device called a 'firewall' to protect the wired network from unwanted wireless traffic.

So, you first require some form of wireless access.

The people who require wireless printing capability must have their computers configured to make an association to the WAP. Usually requires a passkey or password, depending on the wireless security method.

A port on the firewall must be forwarded to the port used by whichever network-printing protocol is being used to communicate with the printer. There are several possible protocols.

The printer must be set to an IP address unique within the private subnet, i.e., used by the local network.

PC-based network-connected devices use IP (Internet Protocol) addressing, i.e. xyz.zxy.yzx.xzy

The printer must be connected to a network switch that is in some way accessible to the WAP. Residential/SOHO (Small Office Home Office) setups use a combination switch/router device, called simply: a router.

Most of the above is done automatically, but there are some set-up tasks that require user intervention. Electronic devices know how to configure everything, after they are given proper parameters.

All you need to do is check the above items. If the printer is found by MS Windows 'searching for network printers', the hard part is done. Then you just tell Windows to use the network printer.
