I have an HP P3015 printer.  It has a network jack on the back of it and I want to network it for my office.  I don't have the CD for it anymore.  I plugged it into a usb port of my computer and it installed correctly and works just fine with usb.  How do I setup this printer so users can install it over the network?  I can't seem to find the manuals online or the correct software.  Can someone give me some help?

In addition to remmett70's post, here's how to install it on a PC.

Go to Devices and Printers. Click on Add a Printer. Select local printer, not a networked printer. When asked to select the port, create a new Standard TCP/IP port with the printer's IP address. When asked for the printer model, browse to the location of the driver files.

Drivers can be found here:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=3815807&lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=3815797

Run this to extract the driver files. Make a note of the folder where they are extracted (preferably on a server, so everybody has access), as that is the location the driver is installed from.

Note that you need to select the OS as well as the driver type (PCL5, PCL6 or PostScript) from the link I gave.

You can get the drivers for the Oki here:

You can get the user's manual here:

The instructions on setting the IP address start at page 30. However, you need to start from page 22 for instructions on how to get into the admin menu.
