    I can not get my printer to hook up to my laptop via router.

    I have a brand new Lexmark Z1420 printer that will not connect via WIFI.


    I follow the install using the CD from the box.  It asks for username / password for wireless connection.  My wireless is WPA/2 protected.  I enter the 8 digit code and after a minute or two the Lexmark setup program says something like "Cannot connect wirelessly, do a direct connect?".  The setup program does not ask for type of WIFI encryption your netowrk uses.

SOURCE: lexmark z1420 wireless issue

I found out after alot of searching to perform a hard reset, put the printer into standby mode ie, flashing power button, hold it for two seconds and then release

the open the printer cover
then press and hold the power button for at least 30 seconds, try 40 if in doubt (yes your finger does become numb at this point)

Let go and wait 40 seconds, and it should then boot back to factory defaults so you can start again

If you do get it working wireless from a mac in infrastructure mode I would like to hear, because I have yet to manage this, connected and routed via a bt voyager 2110 wifi router.

SOURCE: Connect Lexmark X5470 via wireless router

I would like to inform you that Lexmark X5470 is not a wireless printer. However, if you want it to use wireless then you should have a Lexmark N4050e 802.11g Wireless Print Server.

SOURCE: print from laptop without using router to lexmark 6600 wifi printer

only if you get a wi fi access point and have a switch to connect the wi fi access point to but then you would have issues with NAT ( Network Address Translation ) which is used to be able to connect many computers to the internet through one internet connection.

Hi, Try to uninstall the printer entirely from your computer using installation disk which you can download from http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=recommendedDownloads&locale=EN&productCode=LEXMARK_Z1420&segment=DOWNLOAD&userlocale=EN_US#1
Once you have uninstalled printer, try to restart printer, disconnect printer from USB port as well. Now try to install from the downloaded driver set for Windows 7.
Cheers!

My lexmark z1420 has been in the loft for some time, I have switched it n anf the wi-fi light keeps flashing orange no green?


Try to print the wireless settings page to determine if your printer is still on the same wireless network as your router and computer. To print the page, follow the steps in these article on How to Print the Network Settings Page on the Z1400 & Z1500 Series Inkjet Printer; a brief explanation of its values. On the page, check the Status, SSID and also the IP address and see if it's connected to your network. Otherwise, you may need to reset your Lexmark Z1420's wireless network adapter and reconfigure it. To reset, follow the steps in this article on How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings. Launch the Lexmark wireless setup utility to reconfigure the printer to your wireless network.
Hope this helps.

My lexmark z1420 is not wireless - it used to be - what has happened?


The printer may still have the old settings from your router in its wireless network adapter. You will need to reset the Lexmark Z1420 wireless network adapter first. To do this, follow the instructions found in the article on this link: http://bit.ly/dDn8C2. Once you'll have a solid orange wifi light again, run the Wireless Setup Utility like how you setup the printer for wireless connection for the first time. Let me know if you still need more assistance. Thanks.

Why can my z1420 not find my new router . It worked on the old one. When I try to print I get a message saying 'problem communicating with the printer.


Most probably the printer network settings is still configured with the settings of your old router. You will need to reset the printer's network settings before configuring it with the new one. Here's an article in the Lexmark website on how to reset the Lexmark Z1420. http://bit.ly/bVr6L1. Just follow the instructions. Basically, all you need to achieve is to have a solid orange wifi light on. Then, install the printer with the new network like how you're setting it up for the first time. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Hey, i recently got a Mac and tried to connect my Z1420 wireless Lexmark printer to it. The wireless did not work, but when i connected it via USB the printer worked. I settled for this but recently the...


You stated you have a mac. Is your Mac a laptop that provides wireless? Or are you on a Mac desk top connected to a router that has wireless included with it.. If you have either than you need to go into your network and sharing to set-up the wireless printer. This will give you access to your router via desktop or your wireless settings via laptop,
Once there if you are already using wireless settings you are going to have to allow your printer in through your wep or wap encryption settings. This was set up when you first started using your wireless to keep out intruders.

Cannot connect wireless


I'm not sure how you have it set up right now, but if you have the printer set to "shared", then you can connect to the computer that's connected to it from another wireless device and double-click on the printer. It will let you install the driver for it and add it to your Printers list as an available printer. Then when you print you just select that printer and Windows should take care of it. If you have already tried this please post back with some more information as to the process you have followed and where it errored out.
