I just got (2nd hand) a Lexmark optra s 1855 with an ethernet connection. But no printed instructions for network setup. I assume with proper setup any computer on my network will be able to print to it directly. Is this true? And how do I set it up. Right now when I browse for a network printer none shows up.

Under TCP/IP settings I enabled DHCP, provided the gateway address of my router and that works. But I'm missing the next step.

In that manual, under network setup page 112, it says "Refer to the documentation that came with your network option." Of course, as I said, I have no such documentation.
