Question about Lexmark Office Equipment & Supplies
I have a new lexmark X4530 wireless printer and have successfully connected it to my wireless router. I installed the software on my pc that the router plugs into with a ethernet cable and the printer works fine wireless. I then installed the software on my laptop and have chosen it as my default printer but the laptop cannot communicate with the printer wireless, although if I connect the usb cable it will print. How can I get my laptop to communicate with the printer wirelessly? I have tried turning off the firewall, and called myself looking at every possible setting that may be the problem. I give up. Can you help?
Please check IP, use manual IP for laptop and Printer. may AUTO IP cause this issue.

I had the same problem when I got vista. First goto lexmark's web site and try to download the vista driver. It did not work for me I had to contact lexmark and they sent me a new driver disc for vista. I have had no problem with it since.

There could be a security feature on the printer that requires that you enable the Ethernet port at the printer's control panel 1st. I've seen this w/ printers and All-In-Ones that have a wireless-capable.
HERE is a link to HP's info, downloads, FAQs, etc on this printer.
Depending upon your LAN configuration (on the router), you may need to at least change the subnet mask on the printer if not assign it a static IP so it doesn't conflict w/ any other devices on your LAN using DHCP. (1st, of course, you'll need to get the Ethernet port enabled on the printer)
HERE's the User Guide for your printer. Go to page 29 to find the network configuration instructions.
Please, let us know if this response was helpful for your or, of course, if you have more questions, etc on this topic.
