Can't get my wireless printer to receive a signal from the router

I have a perfectly funcitoning wireless router, a wireless-enabled laptop that never loses signal, yet the wireless Lexmark X4650 i bought yesterday just won't pick up the signal to print wirelessly. I've tried re-installing the software twice, and have removed any possible obstructions from the router to the printer - everything's right next to everything else.Any thoughts??

I would take that printer back. I do not know which store you bought it from, but from my troubleshooting experience rule out that it is in fact not the printer. Another one taken through the same paces will tell you that. Then you know that it is something outside that printer or some question or parameter not answered right during the installation process. Good luck and God bless.

Cannot get a wireless connection


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.

Also, you may refer to this article on the Lexmark website about How to identify a Wireless Communication Problem and Resolution Tips.

1) Please check your router setup whether it does not allow Wireless devices to ping against each other;
2) If it does not allow to ping (communicate) with each other, please disable it first.
3) Then please check your Epson wireless setup whether the DHCP function is enabled; if not, please enable it;
4) Please also input your network gateway, sub-net mask correctly into the Epson printer, otherwise the wireless communication with your network will not work.
5) Then switch off your printer and turn on again to recognize the new settings; and it should work

In this situation your wireless printer might require a power reset before you print each document. Though the printing activity will take place efficiently you will have to physically go and power the printer to enable it to print. This problem might require you to reload the firmware of the router and set the wireless printer to manual IP address in order to make it work seamlessly no matter how many documents you have to print.

Can't get epson Stylus nx400 to print from wireless laptops. printer connected to desktop with windows xp pro. both laptops use windows vista home premium.


As your printer is not wireless itself you need to shared the printer. To enable this goto Control Panel on your desktop, select printers, right click your printer and there should be an option for sharing. Enable sharing.
Now using your Vista laptops you should connect to your home network (in your case this is probably a wireless router, as long as your desktop is connected to this router too), goto Control Panel, printers, add printer, search for printer not connected to this copmputer (or network printer).
Hopefully the Vista laptops will then pick it up and install it correctly. You may be asked to install the correct driver for the vista machines. Windows should provide you with instructions on how to do this.
Hope this helps, www.PuterCare.com

First your router has to picked up the signal in order for it to work.You may need to use an ethernet cable and connect it wired to the laptop..Then once done you will need to access the default router setting which would be something like 192.x.x.x and this would either be mentioned somewhere on the router or the manual..and would have a default username and password.Once in there you can add encryption type,network ssid name, change all sort of things...Make sure you make note of the key and use it when your wireless network ask for this key.Make sure your wireless network card is enabled and/or turned on....Hope this gives you an idea.

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
