Your computer is not connected to your home network, your printer is not connected to your home network. That is the way they communicate.

Cannot connect to wireless network

does it have wireless capability? most ricoh/savin/lanier/gestetner machines must have an option installed.

if you have it networked via lan port and have a wireless access point on the same network you should be able to ping the unit and access the gui. if so it is already "wireless" in a sense

Please what kind of wireless dongle do i need to get to connect my Ricoh MPC 3503 wireless and how do i connect it

Just a router and use the same network on both device. Once you had set up the router, you're printer must connect to the router via WiFi, and whenever you want to print anything, make sure that the computer is also connected to that same router. You must have your printer already configured with the computer, otherwise it won't work.

I can't scan to a folder on my laptop via a wireless connection from my ricoh aficio 1600. What do I need to do to get my Ricoh to recognize my computer?

questions 1st are you able to print to the copier by wireless ? 2nd was ever able to scan to folder on your laptop by wireless ? If the answer to both is yes try and plug your laptop into a network jack with a network cable and see if you can scan then. If you still can't it is possible the path to your folder has changed or your permission (password) has changed to your folder or the folder is not there anymore.

Network problem with Aficio 1515f

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

I want to install my mutifunction machine on network

You need to connect the RJ45 cable from the copier to your router, and give the copier the appropriate IP Information. You can then use the drivers avaliable on the ricoh-usa website to install the drivers on the laptops.

I need to print from my laptop, will I have to buy an wireless adapter?

No reason why you should. Run printer software on laptop and connect cable between lapptop and printer when told to do so. Cable needs to be connected everytime you want to use printer.
