Are you trying to use the "MPF" (Manual Paper Feed) tray?
If you are then the manual paper feed tray is usually a fold down flap at the back of the printer. It only accepts on piece of paper at a time.
However, if you are just trying to print to the printer's default tray, then you need to check both the "Page Setup" in the application and the printer driver properties to make sure that you are calling the correct paper tray.
You will need to print off a printer settings page. Usually found under the Reports menu or something similar. It will list the IP address. Once you have the IP Address, make sure it is set correctly in your printer drivers in the Control Panel on your computer.
What do you mean by "not take the download?" Are you trying to load the drivers from the Dell site and have the printer work? I ask because I could not get mine to work with just the drivers offered on the web site. I have to use the original install disk when loading to a machine using Windows XP SP2. Vista on the other hand started running with the downloaded drivers just fine. Have you used the install disk that came with the printer? I am on a home office network but had the same result when I ran a USB cable from my pc directly to the back of the 5100cn. The disk is the only way I can load it and I have had to do it several times over the years when changing the settings on the network. Hope this helps.
