Network printing with a non-networked printer This model printer has only an USB printer connection andnormally connected to a computer or laptop. To connect this printer wirelessly to all laptops on your wireless networkthere are a couple of methods. Connect the printer to a desktop computer and setup the printer as a sharedprinter. Next connect the desktop computer to your wireless router with a LANcable and then configure the wireless laptops to connect to the shared printeron the desktop computer. NOTE - This desktop computer and printer must be on atall times for the wireless laptops to print to the printer. OTHER METHOD Connect the printer to an USB print server and connect the print server to thewireless router with a LAN cable. The printer drivers needs to be installed onall the wireless laptops and then the printer port needs to be deleted from theUSB port and a new IP address printer port installed. This IP address will bethe IP address of the print server.

Please check the connection between your printer and computer, check cables if properly connected. Check if printer is showing on printer and faxes and make sure is set as the default printer. You may also download and install the correct print on your computer. For set up instructions please refer to the user manual which is available from support. lexmark.com website.

Wireless printing happens in conjunction with your wireless router. You need the access information for that. Then go to Lexmark website and download and install the software for that printer, and follow the directions exactly. Each computer will need software installed in order to connect.
The printer is probably not getting the same IP address every time. Set a static IP address outside of the range being used for DHCP addressing. If the entire range is set for DHCP, you will need to adjust that range so the printer's IP is no longer in it.
