Connecting to a Network

The machine can be connected to a network via wired LAN, requiring a unique network IP address. For specific IP address settings, contact your Internet service provider or network administrator.
If the machine is connected to an unsecured network, your personal information might be leaked to a third party.
The machine does not come with a LAN cable or router. Have them ready as necessary.

Before You Start

Follow these steps to connect the machine to a network.
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) (Configuring Ethernet Settings). For more information, contact your Internet service provider or Network Administrator.
To check the MAC address of the machine.

Connect to a wired LAN.
Set the IP address.
At the time of purchase, the Auto IP function is activated to automatically acquire an IP address. However, this function may not be used depending on the network environment. In that case, set an IP address manually or configure to automatically acquire an IP address via the DHCP or other protocol.
