Using AutoNet

If the printer IPv4 address is not assigned by a DHCP server automatically, a temporary IPv4 address starting with 169.254, which is not used on the network, can be automatically selected by the printer.

If an AutoNet address is set as the printer's IP address, it changes every time you turn on the printer. Configure the TCP/IP settings according to your network environment.

You must change this setting to “on” to use AutoNet.


  • The IP address assigned by the DHCP server is given priority over that selected by AutoNet.

  • You can confirm the current IPv4 address on the configuration page.

  • The printer cannot communicate with devices that do not have the AutoNet function. However, this printer can communicate with Macintosh computers running Mac OS X 10.2.3. or higher.
