For Network Printer : 

18. Before installing the Network Printer make sure what is the Make of the Router that the User is using if it is IBR 600 then he/she needs a LAN Switch. Since the IBR 600 Router has only one LAN switch.

19. The one with 3 Computer is a LAN Switch and the other one is a WAN Switch.

20. So to install the Printer in Network the user requires a LAN Port which is not present in IBR 600 router.

21. Hence for such issues we need to make sure that User has LAN Switch before the Printer is Installed.

22. If the User already has the switch then go ahead with the Installation if he/she does not have a switch then Escalate the issue to Level 2 Daymon team (Gabe/Mike) to order the Switch for the Warehouse once the Switch is received go ahead with the installation.


You can find some information about the LAN Switch by following the website : 


Also you can find the Network connections for the Printer by following the KB link:

 Please Tap on below link for Screenshots there you will find the connections.

23. If everything is fine and you are still not able to install the Printer take the Serail # for the Printer and escalate the issue to MRC team keeping Mike, Gabe, Pranay and Nigal in cc.
