Wireless Printer communication problem with laptop

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?

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.

SOURCE: Ethernet connection

Hello Becky

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.

Thank you
BJ

Usually a cable is not hooked up or the printer port is not enabled.

If it uses a USB port it should auto detect the port.
If this is the case you will need to download a new driver from the Lexmark site that matches your operating system and install it.

I don't know how to make my Lexmark 4530 print wirelessly. My internet connection is wireless, but I don't know how to get my printer to print wirelessly.


download the installation software from lexmark. You will need to connect it to the computer via a USB cable to run the setup. Just follow the prompts and it will set up the printer on your wireless network. You will run this same software on each additional computer that you want to print to this printer.
