6. If the device manufacturer and model you’re using aren’t displayed in the list,

8. In the Locate File dialog box, locate the .inf driver file for the device and then
click Open.

scanner or accept the default name. You’ll see this name in the Scanners and
Cameras window.
10. Click Next and then click Finish.

Installing Network-Attached Printers, Scanners, and Fax Machines
A network-attached printer, scanner, or fax machine is a device that’s attached
directly to the network using a wireless connection or a network cable. Network-
attached printers, scanners, and fax machines are configured so that they’re accessi-
ble to network users as shared devices. Remember that the server on which you con-
figure the print device becomes the print server for the device you’re configuring.
You can install a network-attached printer or fax machine by completing these steps:
1. Click Start and then click Control Panel. In the Control Panel, click Hardware
and Sound and then click Printers.
2. In the Printers window, click Add a Printer on the toolbar. This starts the Add
Printer Wizard.
3. In the Add Printer Wizard, click “Add a network, wireless, or Bluetooth printer.”
As shown in Figure 12-8, the Add Printer Wizard will then begin searching for
available devices.
4. If the wizard finds the device you want to use, click it in the list of devices found.
Click Next and then click Finish. Skip the remaining steps.
5. If the wizard doesn’t find the device you want to use, click “The printer that I
want isn’t listed.”
6. On the “Find a printer by name or TCP/IP address” page, select “Add a printer
using a TCP/IP address or hostname,” and then click Next.
7. On the “Type a printer hostname or IP address” page, shown in Figure 12-9, use
the “Device type” list to select the type of device. If you don’t know the type of
device, choose Autodetect.

8. In the “Hostname or IP address” text box, type the hostname or Internet Proto-
col (IP) address of the device. If you are unsure, use the device’s control menu to
print a configuration page.
9. The port name is set for you based on the hostname or IP address entry. The
port name doesn’t matter as long as it’s unique for your computer.

10. When you click Next, the wizard attempts to contact the device. If the wizard is
unable to detect the print device, make sure that the print device is turned on
and connected to the network. Also, ensure that you typed the correct IP address
or printer name in the previous page. If you entered incorrect information, click
the Back arrow and then retype this information.
11. If the information is correct, you’ll need to identify the device further on the
Additional Port Information Required page shown in Figure 12-10. In the Device
Type area, click Standard, and then select the printer or network adapter used by
the printer. Alternatively, click Custom and then click Settings to define custom
settings for the printer, such as protocol and Simple Network Management Pro-
tocol (SNMP) status.
12. When you click Next, the wizard will attempt to detect the device model. If
auto-detection is successful, follow steps 9–12 in the “Installing a printer or fax
machine manually” section, earlier in this chapter, to complete the installation.
If auto-detection fails, follow steps 5–12 in the “Installing a printer or fax
machine manually” section to complete the installation.
