Here, we are going to provide the Xerox phaser 6510/n color laser printer setup process, so that, you can easily set up it by yourself.

Effective Process for the Xerox Phaser 6510/n Color Laser Printer Setup

Before printing, make sure your computer and printer are turned On and connected. You can use the USB or connect via a network cable or wireless connection over the network. Hardware and cable requirements vary, depending on the connection method. Xerox recommends an Ethernet connection. You can connect the printer to your computer using a USB cable, Ethernet cable, or wireless connection. A USB connection is the most direct and easy process to set up a connection. Let’s have a look at the section below:

Process 1 – By Using the Network

If your computer is connected to home or an office network, then you need to use an Ethernet cable to connect the printer to the network. You cannot connect the printer directly to a computer. It must be connected via a network router or switch. Ethernet networks can be used for one or more computers and support multiple printers and systems simultaneously. Ethernet connections are usually faster than USB and provide direct access to printer settings through the embedded web server. To connect it:

  • Turn Off the printer.
  • Connect the Ethernet cable from the printer to the network. Now, you can use an Ethernet switch or router, and two or more Ethernet cables.
  • Then, connect the computer to the switch or router with one cable, then connect the printer to the switch or router with the second cable.
  • Next, attach to any port, present on the router, except the uplink port.
  • Connect the power cord, then plug in the printer and turn it On.
  • Set the network IP printer address, or set up the printer for automatic printer IP detection.
  • Once it is done, install the driver on the system.

Process 2- By Using the Wireless Network

If you have a Wi-Fi router, you can connect the printer to a Wi-Fi network. Wireless network connections provide the same access and services as cable connections. Connection to wireless networks is usually faster than USB and allows direct access to printer settings through the embedded web server.

Wireless LAN (WLAN) offers the possibility to connect two or more devices in a LAN without a physical connection. Before you connect the printer to a wireless network, the wireless router must be configured with the service ID (SSID) and to the required credentials. If you are using the wireless network, then you have to install the optional wireless network adapter. To install it follow the directions mentioned below:

  • Turn Off the printer.
  • Remove the Wireless network port cover.
  • Then, install the Wireless network adapter to the network port. To install it follow the online directions.
  • Once it is installed, turn On the printer.
  • Then, configure the Wifi settings from the Admin menu.
  • Once it is done, install the driver on the system.

Process 3-  By using the USB Cable

If you connect the printer to one computer and do not have a network, use a USB connection. USB connections provide fast data rates, but usually not as fast as an Ethernet connection. With the help of USB cable, you can connect the printer to the computer. To do that,

  • Connect the B end of a standard A/B USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 cable to the USB Port on the back of the printer.
  • Connect the A end of the USB cable to the USB port on the computer.
  • If the Windows Found New Hardware Wizard appears, cancel it.
  • Install the print driver on the system.

Now, follow the next step to install the driver on the system.

Install the Driver

Now, you need to install the driver on the system. To do so:

  1. At first, Insert the installation CD into the appropriate drive on your computer. If the installation process does not start automatically, then go to the drive, and double-click on the Setup. exe installer file.
  2. Next, click on the Install Software.
  3. At the License Agreement, select ‘I Agree’, then click on the Next option.
  4. To install the printer support software, select the Software, then click on the Next option.
  5. In the ‘Software and Documentation’ window, clear the check box for any undesired options.
  6. Click on the Next option.
  7. Wait for a few seconds to complete the installation process.
  8. Once it is done, click on the Finish option.
