How do I add a network printer to my computer (Mac)?

To install a network printer on a Mac, you must first install the drivers for the printer. For this example, I'm going to install the Xerox printer in ML 425, which is a Xerox Workcentre 7830.

A quick Google search will pull up the website for the drivers. I'm clicking on the second result, as the first one is an ad.

Given the choice, select built-in controller for the associated product. Choose the first result.

You will have to agree to the terms of service before the download begins. Click Accept.

Save the file.

After you save the file, open it and run the installer.

Click Continue.

Click Continue.

Click Continue.

Click Agree.

Click Install.

Enter your computer admin password. If your computer is set up properly, this should be your name.# password.

After the installation finishes, the computer should autofind the printers in range for you. Select the printer you want to install and click Continue.

Select/deselect the option to set the printer as default and print a test page as you prefer. Then click Continue.

The printer has been successfully added to your computer. Click Close.
