I had issues with the ML25 series (couple years back)vwhich did not include drivers in the CD or it did but were pretty outdated and it took me forever to find an archive (Samsung UK) site that worked.

I hope it all works out for you, let us know if you need any help.

I have to do this tomorrow night. Has anyone any useful advice?

My advice is return it...or cancel the shipment ASAP!!! I ordered the exact same printer (Samsung ML-1865, $49.99, free shipping from OfficeMax)...spent 2-3 hours trying to set the wireless up (the only reason why I bought it)...and it was a no go.

Maybe you'll have better luck:)...just sharing my experience.

Here's a related thread I wrote about it:

Good luck,

I have to agree with Nick. The Samsung ML series of printers whether they be Laser, Inkjet, or wireless, whatever, are terrible. My Samsung lasted two days before I had to return it.

Agreed. Samsung is not a tier 1 printer vendor. They're an also-ran and software is a huge weakness for them. I wouldn't waste your time.

We have had clients with Samsung printer issues they look pretty but thats about it.
Stick with HP,Cannon or Brother I used to recommend Epson but after we upgraded one of our clients OS's the model they had was not compatible meaning no drivers Epson's response was purchase a newer model as you can imagine that did not go over well on a unit that was only a little over a year old.
