Instructions for second platforms
To connect the printer to the computer to other operating systems. MacOS or Unix. all steps are repeated in the same order.
In most cases, to automatically detect and download drivers, SIMply connect the device cable to the Corresponding connector.
After that, the system determines the model and brand and performs first a search and then installation of the necessary programs.
If there is a connection problem, Apple’s operating system opens the Printers Scanners menu. Looking for a connected device and performing manual installation of drivers.
On Linux, you may need to install the CUPS printing system to get started.
Although in modern versions of operating systems based on UNIX technologies, installation is automatic, in much the same way as for Windows.
Connecting a device using a cable
The easiest way to connect a printer to a computer is with a regular cable, just as it has been done for decades. The connection process can be divided into the following stages:
The printer connects to the network;
With the help of a special cable, which usually comes with a printing device, it is connected to a computer;
The driver for the printer is installed, and then you can start using it.
A feature of this connection is the location of the device.
The average cable length does not exceed 2-3 meters, which means that it is best to install the device on the same table where the computer is, or, in extreme cases, on the next.
After connecting to the network (and it is not recommended to connect the printer to the uninterruptible power supply unit due to the high power), it is required to connect to one of the ports of the motherboard.
Several years ago, printing devices could only be connected to a PC using the LPT port. for this reason, it was impossible to work with laptops.
Now manufacturers of such equipment prefer the USB interface.
And for printers that have only an outdated interface, they use special adapters. though not always working and unreliable.
USB cables of a modern printer have two different connectors. a standard flat “A” (the same as on flash drives and ordinary adapters) and type “B”, which has an almost square shape.
The USB-A port connects to the computer and the USB-B port to the printing device. Due to this difference in the connector, incorrect connection is impossible.
For PCs and laptops with Windows operating system, the steps for wired connection and printer setup are as follows:
Printer software is usually run from external media. As a last resort, the driver will have to be downloaded from the Internet.
And sometimes it is enough to disconnect it from the PC and turn it on again. the system will recognize the device again and install the necessary software.
Wireless (Wi-Fi) connection
Before connecting the printer to a wireless network, check for the presence of an Ethernet port. If there is one, the printing device can work autonomously.
In the absence of a connector, the printer is connected to a PC or print server. a small device that provides a connection to the network.
The next step is to install the printer so that it is able to perceive a wireless signal, preferably in line of sight with a Wi-Fi router.
To connect a printing device to the router, turn on the printer and follow the instructions on its screen.
All wireless models equipped with a display for information output.
If you have problems connecting, you should follow the instructions provided with all new printers.
Some devices can only connect to the wireless network through a computer with a Wi-Fi module (most often a laptop).
To connect computers running Windows OS to a network printer, follow these steps:
Open “Control Panel”;
Select the menu of devices and printers;
Click on the item for installing the printing device;
Choose to add a network printer;
Wait until the system detects the presence of a printing device and automatically update the software;
Print a test page to verify that the drivers were installed correctly. If necessary, you can set the network device as the default printer. This will allow you to immediately send printed documents to it.
Printer Sharing, Windows PC Connection
In order to connect computers to a printer paired with a PC on which Windows is installed, you need:
Now, to connect other computers with Windows OS, add a network printer in the same way (through the control panel and the list of printers).
The system automatically searches for the printing device and installs the drivers.
The same is done for computers on which the Apple platform is installed. in this case, look for a new printer in the system settings section.
Access for a printer connected to a Mac OS computer
If the printer is connected to a computer with a Mac OS operating system, the user actions should be as follows:
Now you should take turns connecting to the printer through other PCs.
For technology running under Windows, to gain access, you will need to download the Bonjour Print Services for Windows program and, most likely, will install drivers from the device manufacturer’s website.
For a PC with an Apple platform, it is enough to perform the same steps that were required to connect to a printer connected to the network through a computer with Windows OS.
Connecting network printers
The printer can NOT be connected to specific computers. in this case, access to it is provided from multiple devices (including even smartphones and tablets).
There are three connection options:
Using a wireless network;
Via a PC with Windows OS;
Through computers running Mac OS.
Using the printer from a smartphone
To print from mobile devices running Windows, you can use the following programs and technologies:
Starting work with Google Cloud, you should launch the Google Chrome browser and find additional settings in its menu.
Now you need to find the virtual printers section and click on the control point for devices with virtual memory support.
The next step is to add a new printer. After setting up the printing device, it can be used both from a computer and from any mobile device synchronized with a PC using a Google profile.
In addition to THESE applications, there are a number of others that support the connection of mobile gadgets with various platforms.
They are produced by manufacturers of printing devices. for example, HP has special ePrint software for THESE purposes.
And the only requirement for the operation of such programs is the assignment of the printer to the network.
