SOURCE: set up 2 wireless routers, 1st for printer, 2nd for internet

You should only need one wireless router for everything. The purpose of the router is to "route" multiple devices together. Your set-up should be something like this:

Modem connected to wireless router via Ethernet cable.
Wireless router broadcasting wireless internet connection.
Computer(s) connected to wireless router via cable or wireless adapter.
Computer with network printer sharing enabled.
Turn on wireless printer.
You should be able to detect the printer via Windows.

The closest thing you can do with Canon is a bluetooth adapter to print from a cell phone or other bluetooth device.

Printer connected to windows 7; how establish wireless connection?


There should be an access menu that allows you to set network settings. In order for the printer to be used wirelessly you will have to adjust the settings to allow it to connect with your router. When you enter LAN settings and setup the name of your home network and password it should connect to your router as a network printer. If you need help getting to that setup screen, let me know and I'll check a manual online.

- Press pattlnk_5152007_204-checkmark_alone.jpg to display the scrolling message This will reset all wireless network adapter settings. Are you sure?.
- Press pattlnk_5182007_1524-left_new.jpg or pattlnk_5182007_1529-right_arrow.jpg to change the value from No to Yes, and press pattlnk_5152007_204-checkmark_alone.jpg.

The WiFi light on the printer will momentarily turn off. When it lights up solid orange, launch the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility on your computer by inserting your installation cd or executing the Lexmark X6570 driver. Follow the instructions on your computer screen.

How do I know what my SSID is for my NetGear router Can I hard wire a printer and also send jobs by wireless to same printer? Do I have to download the software in order to print wireless from a different...


Go into the router configure to view the wireless settings, it contains the SSID and encryption etc.
Open IE browser and enter the Netgear URL configuration IP address (http://192.168.0.1)

A network printer must have a built-in print server or be attached to a print server device on the network then all the computers on the network can access this printer.
For a run of the mill printer to work as a network printer it needs to be attached to a computer which is on your network and the printer needs to be setup as a shared printer. This printer and computer must always be switched on for the other computers on the network to access and print to this printer. This method does not require any additional software.

Hi i have a lexmark all in one printer,recently i changed my router and now cant connect the printer wirelessly to the computer!


You will have to reconfigure the printer with the router and then reconfigure the PC. All routers don't have the IP address range. That might be the reason why it isnt working after changing the router. Also, if you were using the printer wirelessly, the SSID (network name) and the wireless security needs to be reconfigured to match your new router. The simplest way to achieve this would be to connect the printer hard wired to the router; uninstall the printer drivers completely from the PC; and run the setup disk again. The setup will walk you through the whole process.

Please get in touch if you need further clarifications.

Setup di524 - using va wireless internet connection


Hello again!

You're welcome to any help I can offer, and I fully understand the potential for confusion. To set up the router itself requires a computer, since this is the only way to 'talk' to the router....but to set up the wireless printer, only the manual can really help, since every one has differing setup requirements.

Concerning your second query, this needs someone with wider expertise than I have - you might wish to post again with this, or perhaps contact one of the top experts directly for faster results - eg 'ziraffa'. (see home page).
Good luck with solving this issue.

DO NOT REMEMBER SSID NAME GIVEN TO ROUTER WRT54GS---LOST PRINTED COPY OF SET-UP. HOW CAN I REPRINT OR JUST FIND OUT INFO


You can see the SSID name from one of your wireless computer that is already connected to the wireless network. Just point your name over the wireless little computer icon down at bottom right hand by the time. It will say there "Wireless Network Connection, Connected to "name of the network". That "name of the network" is the wireless signal name like "Linksys" or whatever name you gave to your network when you setup the router. That's the SSID name as well. Wireless Network Name = SSID.

Router MI424WR-D


Hi Steven,

You will not be able to setup this printer wirelessly to your router as it is because the printer has no networking capabilities(ethernet or wi-fi). If you want to share the printer throughout the network you need a wireless/wired print server or just enable file and printer sharing on the computer where the lexmark printer is connected the only downside with the second setup is the computer where the printer is connected must stay powered on all the time in order for the rest of the computers ion your network to print compared to the 1st setup with the a print server which is stand alone.
