Make sure that you have the right SSID and password for your network. Also, try to powercycle your router and printer. Just unplug the power for about 30 seconds then plug it back in.


If it still doesn't help, try to leave you network open without any password and check if the printer is able to connect. If it does, check if the wireless standard is set to b/g/n. If it is, set it to b/g.

SOURCE: Lexmark X4850 Wireless wont connect

Had a similar problem with my router, which was a 2WIRE router (furnished by AT&T - I have Uverse). Fixed it by going to the router's GUI (mine is 192.168.1.254), click on "View the home network". On the right side of the resulting screen, there is a section titled "wireless settings". Under that, click on "edit settings". Enter the login information (the default password is on a tag on the router). The next screen is "Configure the Wireless Network". Scroll down to the bottom and click on "Rescan". When I did this, my X4850 miraculously connected and started working.

SOURCE: No wireless printer port for lexmark x4650

Your firewall for the wireless is blocking the port. Go into your firewall settings and add the port from the printer to bypass the router. What operating system do you have? It should be in Control Panel under Security Center.
Let me know.

SOURCE: Lexmar 4875 Flatbed Wireless printer not connecting to the networ

I know you posted this in May, so have probably given up and bought a new printer by now, but I thought it worth mentioning that I had the same problem exactly (though without the same number of iphones and laptops!).
Buried away in some documentation on the driver CD, is the fact that the X4875 can't communicate with a secure wireless network that uses a TKIP algorithm - it can only handle AES. My router used TKIP out of the box, and I never thought to change is, especially as it's stronger than AES. However, changing it to AES solved the problem.
By the way, if you're using Vista, you may find that you have to run the install package in Windows XP compatibility mode, and then when the install is complete, manually change every .exe under c:\program files\lexmark\.. to run in XP compatibilty mode too. Works for me (Vista Business), but didn't work wirelessly at all before. Good luck,
Chris J.

Is the Lexmark x5495 wireless? If it is, how do you connect it to a laptop. I lost my installation disk.


The Lexmark X5495 printer is not a wireless printer, however, you have the option to connect it to a wireless print server. You can then connect the wireless print server to your wireless network so all the computers connected to your network will have access to the printer.
To connect the printer to your laptop, please visit the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/hsBChY to download and install the printer driver. Execute the file and follow the instructions on your computer screen.

Will only print maybe one page of a 4 page document and sometimes wont print at all


Below are 3 possible solutions.


Unexpected page breaks occur

Cause Solution

Job has timed out.

Set the Print Timeout to a higher value:



Blank pages

Cause Solution

Toner is low.

Remove the toner cartridge from the printer. Shake the cartridge back and forth several times, and then reinstall it.

Install a new toner cartridge.


Toner cartridge is defective or empty.
Replace the toner cartridge.


Jobs do not print

Cause Solution

Printer is not ready to receive data.

Make sure Ready or Power Saver appears on the display before sending a job to print. Press to return the printer to the Ready state.


Specified output (exit) bin is full. Remove the stack of paper from the output (exit) bin, and then press .


Specified tray is empty. Load media in the tray.


Wrong printer software is installed.

Verify you are using the correct printer software with your printer.

If you are using a USB port, make sure you are running Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, or Windows Vista and using Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, or Windows Vista compatible printer

software.

Cause Solution

Internal print server is not set up properly or is not connected properly.

Verify that you have properly installed the print server and configured the printer for network printing. For more information about installing a network printer, click View User's Guide and Documentation on the Software and

Documentation CD. Copies of the printer software are also available on the Lexmark Web site at www.lexmark.com.


You are using the wrong USB or Ethernet cable, or the cable is not securely connected.

Make sure you are using a recommended cable.
Make sure the connection is secure.

For some reason Lexmark has not posted information for this model. If you need a manual you might try the C534 manual at: http://support.lexmark.com/index?locale=en&page=product&productCode=LEXMARK_C534&segment=SUPPORT&userlocale=EN_CA&frompage=null#2

I cant hook my Lexmark X3550 to a wireless network. How do I do this?


You will need a print server to do this. Many stand-alone USB print servers do not support the bi-directional communication needed for the scanner of an all-in-one. (Check the specs if you are using one of these.)

A better option would be to connect the printer via USB to one computer and then share it across the network. A Windows 7 Home Group for example would be a simple way to set the feature. You may need to set the firewall to Trust the other machines in the network.

Set up the printer on the first computer as you normally would. Get the software from http://www1.lexmark.com/products/view/All-in-Ones/Lexmark-X3550/catId=cat10004-category&prodId=3924-product;jsessionid=51301F9D038596164B244112F2F14143.node4 if needed; click on Download Drivers. Then install the software on the first computer and then connect the USB cable. Set the printer to be shared (Start > Devices and Printers and right click on the printer. Find Printer Properties and the Sharing Tab.)

Make sure that the Home Group is set up and all the computers have joined the Home Group if using that feature. For other Windows computers on the network, get the software and then add the printer as a network printer from the Devices and Printers Add a Printer Wizard. If the printer doesn't show up, check the firewall and sharing.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(I have never connected an all-in-one over a Home Group. I do not know if the scanner works in that case.)

Cannot print from laptop to printer using wireless print server


This is probably the Software Firewall on your laptop

you should probably tell your firewall software that you have an internal network (Laptop-desktop-printer) you should add the IP range of the wireless network as a trusted network.

Need set up Lexmark C534n to our office network.


Does the printer have an IP already assigned to it?

Print out a network settings page:

Printing a network setup page
If the printer is attached to a network, print a network setup page to verify the network connection. This page also
provides important information that aids network printing configuration.
1 Make sure the printer is on and Ready appears.
2 From the control panel, press .
3 Press until Reports appears, and then press .
4 Press until Network Setup Page appears, and then press .
After the network setup page prints, Ready appears.
Note: If an optional internal print server is installed, Print Network <x> Setup Page appears.
5 Check the first section on the network setup page, and confirm that Status is “Connected.”
If Status is “Not Connected,” the LAN drop may not be active, or the network cable may be malfunctioning.

If that is an IP not on your network, then you need to change that IP to an unassigned IP that is on your network.

You can do that by typing in the IP of the printer into a web browser (example: Http://ipaddress)
Then you should be able to modify the IP address from here.

Once the printer is on your network, make sure you have drivers for it installed and then just map any worksttaion to it.

Check your windows firewall or your antivirus.
Disconnect that for a while and delete all pending documents (queue).

Send a new doc to print and see what happen.
Usually those program are blocking the communication between printer and computer.
If this is your case, set a rule on your antivirus program.

Have a great day!
