    I too am suffering with the printer not communication with my pc although I can scan. I believe the problems occurred after I started using a wireless adapter for internet connection.



    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the printer but this failed to rectify the problem and have now had to delet the Lexmark files as it refused to uninstall again. This, strangely, affected my wireless adapter!



    I'm taking the printer back as it's still under guarantee.

Have not got manual for the lexmark interpret s405, so do not understanding controls. Also the printer keeps printing cannot stop it?


You can access the User's Guide from your computer. Just click on Start > All Programs > Lexmark > View User's Guide.

If your printer keeps on printing the same document, there might be a lot of print jobs in your queue. You might have sent the same print jobs when you were getting the communication error. Just click on Start > Printers and Faxes > Double click on the Lexmark icon and clear the print jobs in the queue.

If you're frequently experiencing problems communicating with your Lexmark printer, if your printer is connected to your network, make sure that it's getting a good signal from the router. You might also want to update the firmware of your printer. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update.

A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).

This is one of the common connectivity issues marring the benefits of having a wireless printer. In this situation your printer will not print when connected wirelessly but would need you to set it up with your system using a USB cable. Try resetting the IP of your system to what is mentioned in the printer and in case there is a router connecting your printer and system then use the IP address of router and put it in your system. This should help you fix this printer issue.

Cycle the power
If your printer was previously printing via wireless communication but can no longer do so, it may be necessary to cycle the power on the printer and Router / Access Point to restore communication. Before doing this, verify that the computer can communicate with the Router / Access Point.

On the printer, press the On button to power off the printer. Wait about 10 seconds, then press the On button to power the printer back on.

On the Router / Access Point, if there is a power button, press it to turn off the device, then press it again to re-power after waiting for about 10 seconds.* If there is no power button, you may have to disconnect the power cord / AC adapter. Check with the device's user manual.
* Wireless communication of all devices on the wireless network will be lost while you do this.

The printer and print server has to be connected to the wireless router by a network cable for you to print wirelessly from the laptop.
If possible connect a long network cable between the print server and the wireless router or move the router next to the print server and printer.
You maybe able to use a wireless repeater/extender but is it worth the added costs and complication. The extended range would invite hackers unless you secure your system.

Can't print from my mac to my canon mp980 wireless printer


Sounds like when you added xp you inadvertently installed new print driver on server.
Try rolling back driver. But may drop xp from printing.

Best solution network printer to router bypass server. Will require hard wire from printer to router. disconnect from server may need network card for printer.

When i try to print wirelessly from my laptop it says its not communicating with printer. I have downloaded a d link wireless router to computer and i don't know why it isn't working?


Hi nataliejm3,

Assuming that you already added the printerto your desktop, you will need to add the MAC address of the printer to your router.

Hope this helps and good luck.
