How To: Setup Library Wireless Printing for Windows

NB: Even though our printer is now a Konica printer and not a Ricoh printer, the steps are still the exact same as the Ricoh drivers still allow user to print to the Konica printer in the library.

 

1. Click the Start Menu Icon and search for “Printers and Scanners” in the search bar and hit ENTER or click [Open] on the right of your start menu window.

2. Click on [Add a printer or scanner] in the Printers and Scanners window.

3. Scroll to the bottom of the list of printers that appear and click on "The printer that I want isn't listed"

4. Select “Add a printer using TCP/IP address or hostname. Then click [Next]

5. Select [TCP/IP Device] as the Device type. Type lab-printers.smunet.smu.ca as the Hostname or IP address. It should populate to Port name also. Click [Next].

6. Select “Custom”, then click [Settings…] button. 

7. Select “LPR” and type in library-web for the Queue name under LPR Settings. Then click [OK]. And on the previous “Add Printer” window, click [Next.]

8. Click on [Windows Update]. [Note:Windows 10 does not come with all the Ricoh drivers, therefore, it needs to do a Windows Update which can take up to 10-15 min.]

9. Once downloaded, select the Ricoh Aficio SP 8200DN PCL driver, then click Next through the menus until you reach Finish.]

10. Select [Next] on the “Type a printer name” page.

 11. Select “Do not share this printer,” then click [Next].


 

12. Then select [Finish] on the Successful install page.”.

 

13. This last step should be done only before you print each time. Open the browser of your choice. Type in lab-printers.smunet.smu.ca and hit ENTER. Type in your S number (sXXXXXXX) and password and select [Log In].

 

14. After logging in, you will see your requested print documents waiting. Check the checkmark box beside the documents you wish to print and click the [Print] button. Your documents will print to one of the two public printers in the Reference area of the library on the main floor.
