printerInitially the design for the new Information Commons included removing the printer from senior lobby. Therefore, this summer no driver was installed for that printer. To add the printer, follow these directions:

1) Right-click on the start button (lower left-hand corner), and choose “Control Panel”.
2) Choose “Hardware and Sound”.
3) Choose “Devices and Printers”.
4) Choose “Advanced Printer Setup”.
5) Don’t wait for it to finish, click “The Printer I want isn’t Listed”.
6) Select Add a Printer using a TCP/IP address or hostname.
7) Choose TCP/IP Device from the device type drop-down menu.
8) Type in the follow IP address: 172.16.231.76 for the senior lobby printer (or 172.16.231.30 for the Flarity Hall printer).
9) Make sure the “Query the Printer…” for driver box is selected.
10) If you are asked, you can keep the already installed driver.
11) Re-name the printer something that make sense to you (like “West Wing” or “Flarity Hall”).
12) It will ask if you want to set it as the default printer — your choice.
13) No need to print a test page.

If you cannot follow these directions, bring your Tablet to the IT Office and we’ll do it.
