It is a common install problem that the ML-2525w printer will fail to stay operational after entering the 'sleep mode', the Smart Panel shows the status unavailable, any print window shows the status as 'offline', however it continues to show an active IP address and DHCP client registry on your LAN / router. The printer seems to install fine, and for a few minutes its status is good and prints successfully. But after it goes to sleep, you can't wake it... unless you restart it... and then symptoms repeat. Resolution: When installing in a wireless LAN, NEVER... repeat, NEVER install via the USB cable. ALWAYS use a standard CAT5 Ethernet LAN cable for wireless installs! The User Guide suggests either will work for wireless installs, but my experience indicates installs are reliable ONLY via LAN cables. Before performing a reinstall I recommend issuing a 'reset' / 'clear' (restore Factory Default) from the 'Network Settings' tab of the Samsung SyncThru Web Service program.

From my experience with that, I believe that there is some sort of bug in the printer that makes it change it's own IP address without warning.
My way of fixing that was by:
1. Going to the printers folder
2. Right-clicking the printer that you are using
3. Selecting properties
4. Selecting the ports tab
Okay, now the next steps are a bit difficult to explain, but I'll try my best,
5. In the box showing all those weird names and etc. find the box that is check-marked
6. Now, you need to see the full title of the port, so expand the tab thingamajigy so you can reveal the full port name
7. Read the title of the port (Should be xxx.xxx.x.xxx ("x"s being numbers))
8. Check-mark the box that says "enable printer pooling"
9. Click on "add port"
10. Choose "Standard TCP/IP port"
11. Click "Next"
12. For those two boxes, you need to input an IP address which is close to the one(s) that you already have set on (For example, I have a printer IP adress of 192.168.1.102, I make a port that is 192.168.1.10[3,4,1, and 0] (Requiring you to add another port (and another, and another....))
13. Next and Next
14. When done adding those ports, checkmark them and press apply
15. Start printing

Tell me if it doesn't work
Have fun ^^

One of two things; either the toner is getting low, or there is a minor error with the unit.

If the toner is getting low this is not a problem; it should still print, but you will need to purchase a new toner fairly soon (the LED will go solid red when the toner is empty).

If it's not toner, then it means one of several minor errors (for example, the front panel isn't shut) is occurring. If you have SmartPanel installed, double clicking on it (the blue S in the system tray) will show you what the error is. If you don't have it installed, go to http://www.samsung.com/us/support/downloads/ML-2525W/XAA to download the latest driver. SmartPanel is included with the driver.

First, plug it into your router or your network via ethernet so it can get an IP address via DHCP. Then browse to its IP address by typing that into a browser window. It's much easier to configure this printer via the web utility built into the printer.

To get the current IP of the printer, press and hold the Stop/Cancel button until the status LED goes from a slow blink to a fast blink. That will make it print a config page with the IP address on it. Connect to the SyncThru web interface by putting that address in your browser's address bar. From there you can access the network settings and change to a static IP.

Just got my ml-2525w printer recently and had a similar issue. It would go offline within an hour or two and the only way to resolve it was to turn the printer off, then back on. Of course, this pretty much defeated the purpose of having a wireless printer..

If you have a wireless router and it's physically located close to your printer, an easy fix is to attach an ethernet cable from your wireless router to your printer. Turn your printer off, then back on and leave the cable connected permanently.

The printer will automatically switch from using it's wireless connection to using it's ethernet connection. The good part is that since you have a wireless router, you can still continue to print to your printer wirelessly.

Also, I have my printer configured to use static IP, partly because I think I noticed the installation program seemed to hardcode the IP address of the printer, even with DHCP. if you still have issues with printing to your printer reliably you may want to try using a static IP address for your printer as well.

By the way, if you use DHCP, in your wireless router, create a DHCP reservation for your printer, so that it always gets assigned the same IP address by your router. This will save you heartache later on.

There are a few possibilities; is the status LED solid red? If so, the toner may be exhausted. If not, the next thing I would suggest is deleting the printer in Windows and reinstalling the latest drivers from www.samsung.com...if the problem is an incorrect setting in Windows that will clear it up.

Question

Can the ML-2525W Laser Printer be powered from a modified sine wave inverter?

We would like to power the ML-2525W Laser Printer from a 120 volt AC converter (Inverter) These inverter units provide a modified sine wave.
The ML-2525W could be the perfect "mobile" printer. If it can be powered from a typical
12 volt DC to 120 volt AC converter (Inverter) we can use these in our fleet of service
trucks to provide a true mobile office. The size is perfect and the paper storage provides
an advantage over mobile ink jet printers.

Opened the printer management console SyncThru Web Service via a browser by entering its IP address (as seen in my router's admin webpage).
Clicked Network Settings at the top
Clicked Wireless on the left
Clicked Custom for Wireless Settings
Deleted the SSID that was already there in the field 'Insert New SSID'. Don't search the list.
Clicked Next
Clicked Apply.
The blue light on the printer goes off and you will see on the refreshed page Link Status: Not Connected

Turn off Wireless, or have both wireless and hardwired working

I have the ML-2525W printer and I am unable to get the hardwire to connect although the wireless works fine. Am guessing the wireless is overriding the hardwired port. I would prefer to use the hardwire port.

Note: Please read all the way through before attempting.

I contacted Samsung support about the availability of an option to disable wireless. They indicated to me that the wireless should disable automatically once a hard lined (LAN)connection was established. I did see wireless after setting mine up, but the next day it disappeared. If all your settings are correct, you may have an issue with the unit. I recommend contacting Samsung support, maybe its a warranty issue. A couple things that you can try is checking the HTTP interface to see if the printer is at least working with just the hard line. You will need a cross over ethernet cable and probably a laptop. Disconnect any devices using the wireless printer and power it off, then back on. If you hold down the triangle button with the circle around it for 5 seconds, and release, the printer will print the network configuration settings. I believe the default is 127.0.0.127. You would assign an IP to your laptop like 127.0.0.128, and the default gateway would be 127.0.0.128. Once you apply the settings, if you open up Internet Explorer and type in http://127.0.0.127(or the IP you got when you printed the network config page.) You should see a page come up for the printer. If not you probably have a problem with the NIC on the printer. At this point you can change the IP settings back to DHCP on the laptop, or whatever you had set up prior.

if you know the IP and can access it at http://<IP> you can change it there (see the SyncThru password answer).
Otherwise you'd need to connect it via USB and run setup again

My guess is that the install is attempting to access the Internet in order to see if there are any upgrades to the components you just installed. Hopefully, it gives you a graceful way to get out of that and keeps what's successfully installed in place so you can update later (and only if you need to). Good Luck.

Question

I think what I need is new firmware. Is there an update available?

My ML2525w printer works for awhile when first turned on, but if not used contiuously goes to sleep. The only way I have found to wake it is to walk down the hall, turn it off and then turn it back on. This gets wearisome real fast.

So far I have tried:
reinstalling it with the universal driver,
installing it using an internet cable
instead of a USB cable,
and at Adrian's suggestion,

using a static address.
Nothing helped.

My system uses XP operating system.

In Windows, when you are in the Print dialog box, hit "Preferences".
This opens a secondary dialog box that allows you to adjust settings for that print job.
In the "Advanced" tab, select one of the options in the "Double Sided Printing" section.
