The Dell 1320C Network Color Laser Printer offers fast, high-quality printing at 12 colour pages per minute. The printer has a compact layout at 15.6", 16.6" deep and 14.8" high.

User authentication and network connectivity make it excellent for small office environments where a few users need to share a speedy machine with a small footprint. The Dell 1320c's network connection requires a DHCP enabled ISP or Router. If you must use a static IP address, it can be configured from the printer's Web browser once it has retrived a network IP from DHCP.

Plug the Dell 1320C into your router using an Ethernet cable.

Press and hold the "Continue" button on the front of the printer for three seconds. A test page will begin printing that shows the IP address of the printer on your network.

Open your browser and go to the number listed next to "IP Address" on your printout. You will be asked to supply a user name and password

Enter the user "admin" without quotes and leave the password blank.

Click "IP Configuration" and enter the IP address you would like the printer to use. It will demand this IP from the router every time it attempts to connect.

Click "Yes" when asked if you would like to restart the router.
