Can this machine be used as a standalone printer ( connect a cat 5 cable from laptop to ricoh ethernet port or does it require a router for use?) I have tried this approach but my laptop cannot see the copier

Re: Ricoh cl 7000
To my understanding since this model is a print server by itself, should you want to connect it straight to a laptop and not through a hub or router, perhaps you can try using a cross-over cat5 networking cable instead of the regular straight through.
Additionally, the IP adds of the printer and laptop should be near (192.168.15.16/printer and 192.168.15.xx/laptop).
Alternately, the printer will allow also connections by parallel, USB and bluetooth.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

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.
Do you have the copier feature option installed? It is most likely just a loose connection on the interface between the main printer unit and scanner section. Turn off main power (red button), and re-seat the connector.
I believe the copier only has a tcp/ip port for connection, so you will still need to run it through a router, or if the PC is not on the internet, you can connect the machine directly to the ethernet port on your pc using a 'crossover' cable You will need to download the Vista driver from Ricoh Here:
For to use the network printer first of all you should have a network connection port. If you have one on your printer than you should install a driver on the computer from where you will print then connect the cable with network LAN cable which the one end is connected into the printer and the other into the network switch or router. After this is done go to start menu on you computer than go to printers and faxes and select the printer driver 1515 press the right click and click on properties then go to port and create a TCP/IP port similar to the computer ip address.
EXAMPLE: if the address on the computer is 192.168.0.100 than put the address of the printer as follow 192.168.0.101
Please look at the paper sheet which is printed from the machine by her self when the machine is turned on for the first time in the day. There should have a port name which can be 10001 or 9100 or 9101 or similar. Enter that number in the TCP/IP port properties than go to the machine and press the [User tools/ Counter] key then go to system settings and than network settings and enter there the ip address which you had enter before on the driver in the computer.
1. Make sure the wireless is disabled when you're doing that. It might cause a confusion between the wired and wireless connection.
2. Try to plug it at other ports (1-4)
3. Try another known working ethernet or CAT-5 cable.
4. Set the laptop's LAN card's speed to 10-hald duplex.
