Connecting via Ethernet or USB

  • Updated

Looking to connect? We've got you covered!

All our printer models can connect using an Ethernet or USB. Below we have listed recommendations, requirements, and steps to get you started.

 

Ethernet and USB recommendations and notes:  

  • Make sure the USB or ethernet cord is long enough so there can be extra slack. 
  • Connect the USB or Ethernet cords on the printer on the left side of the printer. There will be a door towards the top of the printer. 
  • Ethernet cords that are CAT5e or CAT6 are compatible with all our printer models
  • You do not have to stay connected to the USB cord all the time! 

 

Connect to the network by choosing the LAN Type for the Ethernet connection:

Changing the “LAN type” is changing the way the printer is connected, whether it is wirelessly or with an ethernet cord. 

  • First, go to your printer and press the Menu key. If you are still seeing the ink levels, press the menu key one more time 
  • Now you will see a list of options, use the arrows around the OK button to navigate to System Settings and press OK
  • Next, press the up and down arrows again until you see Interface Settings, then press OK 
  • Now, press the up and down arrows until you see Network, then press OK
  • Next, you will want to select LAN Type by pressing the up and down arrows, the press OK
    • This will take you to another menu. Select Ethernet if you want to set the printer up wirelessly
    • Once you select Ethernet, press the Menu button. It will take you to the home screen with the ink levels.
    • The wireless blue light will start blinking indicating the LAN Type has been selected.

 

 

And that's it folks! You should now be online and ready to print.
