It's a networked printer. Most operating systems will find it automatically if you're connected to Omni wifi (sudomesh, Omni Ballroom, etc). If you have trouble over the network, you can also connect by USB.

== Getting More Toner ==
 
Bring the empty toner cartridge to [http://www.yelp.com/biz/cartridge-world-oakland Cartridge World] and they will give you a full one for $50ish. They reuse the cartridges. They've always had plenty of this model in stock. If you know of a cheaper alternative please edit this wiki.
 
It's just down the road, 1.5 miles away. [https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Sudo+Room/Cartridge+World+Rockridge Directions]
 
Make sure you bring just the cartridge and not the entire drum thing. Those are more expensive and breakable.
 
== Duplex Mode ==
 
Duplex mode is when it prints on both sides of the page. You can turn this on/off at the web interface: http://192.168.42.12/user/prnset.html
 
In duplex mode, I advise printing just one copy at a time. If you try to print multiple copies in one job, it might collate them wrong. This just happened to me. I tried to print two copies, but each sheet had the same exact thing front & back. Very weird.
 
== Network Fail ==
 
Sometimes the network settings get fucked up because someone factory reset it or something. You can print the current settings by pressing '''Go''' 3 times within 2 seconds. If it got factory reset, the IP address will probably be <code>169.254.32.12</code> so you can fix it by connecting your linux laptop directly by ethernet and then something like:
 
sudo ip link set eth0 up
sudo ip addr add 169.254.32.11/16 broadcast 169.254.32.255 dev eth0
 
Then visit the [http://169.254.32.12/printer/main.html settings page] in your browser. The default auth is:
 
Username: admin
Password: access
 
=== Fixing the settings ===
 
Tell wifi to use sudomesh:
* http://169.254.32.12/bio/wlan.html
** Wireless Network Name (SSID): sudomesh
 
Then change the wifi TCP/IP settings:
* http://169.254.32.12/bio/tcpip2002.html?interface=2
** IP Address: 192.168.42.12
** Gateway: 192.168.42.1
 
Then make it use the wifi instead of ethernet:
* http://169.254.32.12/bio/multiif.html
** Auto Switching ( Enable Both Interfaces )
 
The printer will restart and the page won't reload. But now wifi should work. For some reason you can't have wifi + ethernet at the same time.
