Printing to the NCPL wireless printer:


In order to print to the NCPL wireless printer, you must first install the printer.  Then when you go to print your document, make sure to select our printer from the printer list: "Officejet Pro 8000 A809". Black and white copies from the wireless printer are .15 a page, and color copies are .30 a page.

If the page you are printing has any color on it, you must select "grayscale" from the print menu (Click on preferences, then the features tab, and select "print in grayscale" from the color options section. Select "black ink only" from the pull-down menu and click OK to apply the changes) or we will have to charge you for a color copy!

On XP:


The easiest way to do this in Windows XP is to use the installation disk provided at the front desk.  If you do not have a CD drive, you can also install the printer with the following steps:

1- Download the HP Install network printer wizard (http://www.nelsoncopublib.org/inpw.exe) and install.  Also download the printer drivers (http://www.nelsoncopublib.org/wirelessdriver.exe) and install.  Do not attempt to install both of these at the same time!

7- At the Driver Options window, select "Select from a list of drivers available on this computer". (Make sure you have installed the printer drivers!)

8- Click "Show only currently installed drivers" and select "HP Officejet Pro 8000 A809 Series" from the list. Click Next, and then Install.
