    This is no answer. It is a lexmark promo. I needed to know if I need to get a wi-fi or if my computer would communicate directly. I do not need a "network". I want a single laptop to be free to move about and communicate with the printer. If this is your answer format I will not use "FixYa " again or recommend it to anyone.

    Going wireless

    Need to know how to set up wireless printing? You might be surprised at how easy it is. You need:


    • A wireless-enabled computer. Many computers made over the last
    three years are already wireless capable, or they can operate
    wirelessly with adapters.

    • A wireless router. This will serve as your Wi-Fi access point, the hub of your network.

    • Broadband Internet access. While you can use your wireless router
    without any Internet access at all, or use dial-up, experts agree that
    there’s real value in accessing online content via DSL or cable and
    making it available to every computer in your house. The cost of doing
    so, like with the hardware, has dropped dramatically in the past
    several years.

    • A wireless all-in-one printer. By combining printing, scanning,
    copying and faxing, these all-in-one printers save time and money. One
    easily installed device centrally located in the house makes it easier
    to share.


    When you set up your network using the wireless router, you’ll need
    to identify that network on each of your wireless computers and during
    the installation process for your Lexmark wireless printers or
    all-in-one devices. You’ll be asked about your service set identifier
    (SSID), which is basically the name of your network. Don’t forget to
    consider the security of your network early in your decision process.


    • Common security types for networks include WEP, WPA and WPA2, and
    there is usually also an option for no security. At a minimum, you
    should look for WPA or WPA2 security and follow the manufacturer’s
    instructions to encrypt your signal and set your own password. A
    password isn't mandatory, but if you don't use one, it's far easier for
    others to access your network, and potentially your computer.


    Setting up your wireless printer

    A Lexmark wireless all-in-one allows multiple family members to print,
    scan, fax and access media card slots wirelessly from any home computer
    or laptop – all at the same time.


    Setting up your Lexmark wireless printer takes only minutes, and can be done at the same time you set up your network.


    The on-screen installation software guides you through the setup
    process. Everything is written in simple language, with helpful
    illustrations. As you step through the screens, the instructions are
    clearly presented, making it easy to choose the right selections.


    If there is any question as to whether or not you have successfully
    connected your Lexmark wireless printer to your wireless network, the
    glowing Wi-Fi indicator on the front of the printer will provide you
    the status: When the indicator changes from orange to green, that means
    you are good to go.

After installing my lexmark 7675 my laptop cannot access the wireless network


Wireless communication issues could be due to wireless signal quality, signal interference, firewall, etc. Make sure your printer is positioned where it receives excellent wireless signal strength (avoid physical obstructions whenever possible) and away from appliances which emit wireless signals (e.g. microwave ovens, cordless telephones, baby monitors, and other wireless electronics) that may cause interference. Make sure to allow full access to all Lexmark software and printer communication processes in the program rules/permissions for your firewall.

Lexmark 6500 orange blinking light


Blinking orange on the WiFi light means one of the following:
  • The printer is out of the range of the wireless access point (wireless router)
  • The printer is trying to communicate with the wireless access point but the wireless access point is turned off or not working properly.
  • Either the configured printer of the wireless access point has been turned off and back on, and the printer is trying to establish communications with the network.
  • The wireless settings of the printer may no longer be valid.

Your printer may need to be reset. Disconnect your printer from your computer. Unload the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. While the cover is open, check for any paper jams or obstructions in the paper path and the cartridge carrier's path. If all is clear, close the printer cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it.
When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the cover. Check for any errors. If no error, reinsert the other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear. You can also try to reinsert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.
For your wireless connection problem, you may need to reset the printer's wireless network settings first. Please refer to How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings.
To reconnect the printer to your wireless network, re-launch Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility on your computer.

Wifi signal orange. showing as not connected to computer


This could be a slight communication problem. Try to reboot your computer. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet in the wall to reset it. Doing this usually fixes minor communication issues.
If there's still no communication, try to reset your printer's network settings - How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings. Once done, re-launch the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility on your computer to reconfigure the printer to your wireless network. If you're using Windows, go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark Z1400 Series > Tools > Wireless Setup Utility. Follow the instructions on your computer screen.

Unable to connect wireless to my laptop lexmark x4650


This could be a firewall issue. Make sure to allow full access to all Lexmark softwares and printer communication processes in the program rules/permissions for your firewall.



Place your printer where it receives excellent wireless signal quality and away from other electronic devices which can cause wireless interferences (e.g. cordless phones, microwave ovens, baby monitors, garage door openers, and other wireless electronics).
