Basic Network Settings

Solution

Connecting to a Network

When connecting the machine to a wired local area network (LAN), you need to set an IP address unique to the selected network. For steps to connect the machine and set an IP address, see "Getting Started". For specific IP address settings, contact your Internet service provider or Network Administrator.

IMPORTANT
If the machine is connected to an unsecured network, your personal information might be leaked to a third party.

NOTE
  • The machine does not come with a LAN cable or router. Have them ready as necessary.
  • For more information about your networking devices, see the instruction manuals for the devices or contact your manufacturer.

Before You Start

Follow these steps to connect the machine to a network.

1. Check your computer settings.
  • Make sure that the computer is correctly connected to the network. For more information, see the instruction manuals for the devices you are using, or contact the device manufacturers.
  • Make sure that the network settings have been completed on the computer. If the network has not been set up properly, you will not be able to use the machine on the network, even if you perform the rest of the procedure below.
- Depending on the network, you may need to change settings for the communication method (half-duplex/full-duplex) or the Ethernet type (10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T). For more information, contact your Internet service provider or Network Administrator.
- To check the MAC address of the machine. For more details, see "e-Manual" (HTML manual) in the DVD-ROM supplied with the machine.
- To connect to an IEEE 802.1X network. For more details, see "e-Manual" (HTML manual) in the DVD-ROM supplied with the machine.

2. Connect to a wired LAN.

3. Set the IP address as necessary.
  • This step is required when you want to use a specific IP address or assign an IP address automatically.

Connecting to a Wired LAN

Connect the machine to a computer via a router. Use a LAN cable to connect the machine to the router.

1. Connect a LAN cable.
  • Connect the machine to a router by using a LAN cable.
  • Push the connector in until it clicks into place.


2. Wait approximately 2 minutes.
  • While you wait, the IP address is set automatically.
You can set the IP address manually.

Viewing Network Settings

NOTE
  • The IP address is not correctly configured if it is displayed as "0.0.0.0".
  • Connecting the machine to a switching hub or bridge may result in a connection failure even when the IP address is correctly configured. This problem can be solved by setting a certain interval before the machine starts communicating.
  • You can print a list of the current network settings.
