To add an IP printer, you need to know its IP address or DNS name. Also make sure that the driver is installed. See above for assistance.

To add an IP printer:

  1. Choose File > Print, and then choose Add Printer from the Printer pop-up menu.
  2. Click IP in the toolbar of the dialog that appears.
  3. Choose the appropriate printing protocol from the Protocol pop-up menu (LPD is fine).
  4. Type the IP address or DNS name for the printer in the Address field.
  5. If your printer requires it, type the queue name for your printer in the Queue Name field (There are no queues for office printers).
  6. Enter a name and location for the printer, so you can identify it in the Printer pop-up menu (you can put whatever you like)
  7. If the Print Using pop-up menu doesn't display the name of your printer's model, choose the item appropriate for your printer from the Print Using pop-up menu, and then select your printer in the Model Name list.
  8. Click Add.

Your computer can usually detect whether a printer has special accessories installed, such as additional paper trays, extra memory, or a duplex unit. If it can't, a dialog appears that lets you specify them. Make sure the settings in that dialog accurately reflect your printer's installed accessories so you can take full advantage of them.
