Installing Printer Software
You can install the printer software for local printing or network 
printing. To install the printer software on the computer, 
perform the appropriate installation procedure depending on 
the printer in use.
A printer driver is software that lets your computer 
communicate with your printer. The procedure to install drivers 
may differ depending on the operating system you are using.
All applications should be closed on your PC before beginning 
installation.

printer driver, when Phaser 3428/DN is attached to your

Installing Software for Local Printing
A local printer is a printer directly attached to your computer 
using the printer cable supplied with your printer, such as a USB 
or parallel cable. If your printer is attached to a network, skip 
this step and go to “Installing Software for Network Printing” on 
page 6.
You can install the printer software using the typical or custom 
method.
