Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I am having problems with my lexmark z1480 printer configuration. I can run through installation and all is well but my laptop cannot access the printer unless the usb cable is attached. I use AVAST instead of NORTON and have SecureVPN installed that I use for remote work. Why can't the wireless configuration for the printer find it. The printer shows on my 2wire wireless router and I am running XP
It can be done; the trick is to use the USB line to set up the printer's WIFI, check it out on the printer's menu (Settings>Network>etc.), then disconnect the USB and install the rest of the software over the WIFI. This forces the computer to recognise the printer at its MAC address. BUT, and it's a big BUT, the printer queue gets lost (on my system anyway) as soon as I go onto the internet; I guess this may be because I use an antique router which does not distinguish between printers and other devices. A more modern "hub" might solve the problem.
