Adding a Network Printer - PC

NOTE: Please be sure that you are using the “BML Private” wireless network, the public wireless network is internet only, and doesn’t allow access to printers and file servers.

These instructions assume that you have established credentials (an account) on the BML network. If you are logging into your machine locally, and NOT using a BML network domain account, you must log into the print server for printing services to work, see network login instructions for WINDOWS.

Alternatively add the printers by IP address.

Go to your start menu:

  • W7 users, choose "Run" and type in \\chinook
  • W8 and W10 users, from the start screen type \\chinook
  • An explorer window will open and you will see a list of printers.
  • Commonly used network printers are:
    • Computer Lab m609dn
    • Front Office m601dn
    • Library m601dn
    • Purchase Order Printer
  • Double-click on the printer that you want to add.
  • It may take several minutes to be added to your PC.
  • If challenged for your username and password use this convention:

Username = ad3\yourusername (note the \\backslash\\ after ad3 and in front of bodega)

Password = yourpassword (use your own password)

To edit your default printer:

  • From the start menu choose "Printers and Faxes"
  • Highlight the printer you just added, RIGHT click and choose "Set as Default Printer". A small check mark should appear next to the printer name indicating that it is now your default printer.

To set up 2-sided printing as the default printing preference for a printer:

  • From the start menu choose "Printers and Faxes"
  • Highlight the printer and RIGHT click to choose Properties > Printing Preferences > Finishing
  • Check the box that says "Print on both sides", choose the appropriate layout option and select OK.

You may similarly edit the printing preferences from the "PRINT" dialogue box when in an application.
