Your printer has got drivers, so it is easy to set it up.
Follow these steps > http://support.apple.com/kb/PH11145 What you have to do is to turn on your printer, connect it to your Mac with a USB cable (if it is not wireless) and follow the steps of the website above.
Thank you, Mende1! Although the website was a little convoluted, and had to jump from link to link to link. I finally did stumble upon the answer and was able to have the printer recognized on my network via Ethernet.
Now is the challenge of having it recognized wirelessly which I am not able to do it this time.
I want to be able to print from my iPad mini to the printer. The printer is in fact wireless which is why I was gifted with the printer in the first place. Can anyone help me along my journey?
