Check you have the correct port set up in the printer properties.. the default is usually parrallel or usb if connected with network cable open the printers faxes page on your computer and right click on your printer open the ports tab and check if it is set to TCIP you will have to enter the ip address here. you can get this by going to the copier press the 123 button at top left then press for printer and print the config page..hope this helps A

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

How do you install an ethernet card on a gestetner DSM645 copier/

Are you trying to install an ethernet or "NIC" card in order to turn the machine into a printer? If so then you need more than a nic card. You would also need a ROM chip, Print controller, Hard Disk Drive and the buttons for the control panel.
If you are just replacing a NIC and expanding the memory then that is possible but the instructions to do so would be more than could be typed up here.

Instaling network printer from main computer

On the Vista computer, right click on printer, go to sharing tab, click on Additional Drivers button. On the next screen you need to select Windows XP.

This will ensure that whenever a print request is queued from any computer that runs on Windows XP, it will process the request on the Vista machine.

You should also try to ping the printer. You should also check if the computer is able to share files with Vista machine.
