Network printer setup

Hello,
I have a color laser copier I want to set up to my home computer system via ethernet cable to my ATT 2wire router. presently I have a desktop PC wired into one port and laptops accessing wirelessly. I plugged the copier into a port on the router and see all green lights - but I know theres alot more involved but dont know where to start. My first time, but I am comfortable with computers. Just need directions on where to start.
Thanks

  1. what color laser copier are we talking about? was there software and manual that came with it?

    In general you have to assign a Static IP to the printer, then add a new printer on your PC choose network printer and enter the IP number so the PC knows where to find the printer.
  2. I have similar problem.

    I have a Belkin wireless router and setup for the internet OK, but can only print from wireless laptops. How do you assign static IP to the printer? I have an HP Color Laser Jet 3600. I believe I did it per instructions, but still not able to print from descktop.

    Thanks,
    Edog
  3. How does the printer connect to the network? wired or wireless?
