Look on the back of the printer. If it's possible, you'll see a USB connector that looks kind of like an arch or doorway. If so, use a USB A to B cable to connect it to your PC. Make sure you use the drivers for a USB connection when reinstalling it.

    Yes, it is possible to connect via USB. If you utilize USB, you will also be able to scan directly to your machine. The drivers are available both on Kyocera's website or through Windows Update [if you are using a windows machine]

My computer doesn't recognize my printer


It's possible that the problem is with the USB port on the printer. If you have a router, you can try to connect your printer using an ethernet cable so you won't have to configure your printer using a USB cable.

Once you have connected the printer using an ethernet cable, proceed with the installation in your computer and choose ethernet as the connection type. It should automatically find the printer on your network.

Tip

Connecting Two Computers Directly With Cable for a home network


The simplest and easy way to start a home network 


The simplest kind and easy to maintain of home network contains exactly two computers. You can use this kind of network to share files, a printer or another peripheral device, and even an Internet connection. To connect two computers for sharing these and other network resources, consider the options described below.
Connecting Two Computers Directly With Cable

The traditional method to network two computers involves making a dedicated link by plugging one cable into the two systems. Several alternatives exist for networking two computers in this manner: Ethernet crossover cable
Null modem serial cable or parallel peripheral cable
Special-purpose USB cables
Ethernet crossover cable
Null modem serial cable or parallel peripheral cable
Special-purpose USB cables
Ethernet - Of the above choices, the Ethernet method is preferred as it supports a reliable, high-speed connection with minimal configuration required. Additionally, Ethernet technology offers the most general-purpose solution, allowing networks with more than two computers to be built fairly easily later. If one of your computers possesses an Ethernet adapter but the other has USB, an Ethernet crossover cable can still be used by first plugging a USB-to-Ethernet converter unit into the computer's USB port.

Ethernet crossover cables

Serial and parallel - This type of cabling, called Direct Cable Connection (DCC) when using Microsoft Windows, offers lower performance but offers the same basic functionality as Ethernet cables. You may prefer this option if you have such cables readily available and network speed is not a concern. Serial and parallel cables are never used to network more than two computers.

USB - Ordinary USB cables must not be used to connect two computers directly to each other. Attempting to do so can electrically damage the computers! However, special USB cables designed for direct connection exist that can be used safely. You may prefer this option over others if your computers lack functional Ethernet network adapters.

To make dedicated connections with Ethernet, USB, serial or parallel cables requires
each computer have a functioning network interface with an external jack for the cable, and
the network settings on each computer appropriately configured
One phone line or power cord cannot be used to directly connect two computers to each other for networking.

Connecting Two Computers with Cable through Central Infrastructure
Rather than cable two computers directly, the computers may instead be joined indirectly through a central network fixture. This method requires two network cables, one connecting each computer to the fixture. Several types of fixtures exist for home networking: Ethernet hubs, switches, and routers 
USB hubs
Phoneline and powerline wall outlets
Ethernet hubs, switches, and routers
USB hubs
Phoneline and powerline wall outlets

Implementing this method often entails additional up-front cost to purchase more cables and network infrastructure. However, it's a general-purpose solution accommodating any reasonable number of devices (e.g, ten or more). You will likely prefer this approach if you intend to expand your network in the future.

Most cabled networks utilize Ethernet technology. Alternatively, USB hubs can be employed, while powerline and phoneline home networks each offer their own unique form of central infrastructure. The traditional Ethernet solutions are generally very reliable and offer high performance.
Connecting Two Computers Wirelessly
In recent years, wireless solutions have enjoyed increasing popularity for home networking. As with cabled solutions, several different wireless technologies exist to support basic two computer networks: Wi-Fi
Bluetooth
infrared
Wi-Fi
Bluetooth
infrared
Wi-Fi connections can reach a greater distance than the wireless alternatives listed above. Many newer computers, especially laptops, now contain built-in Wi-Fi capability, making it the preferred choice in most situations. Wi-Fi can be used either with or without a network fixture. With two computers, Wi-Fi networking minus a fixture (also called ad-hoc mode) is especially simple to set up. How To - Set Up an Ad Hoc WiFi Network

How To - Set Up an Ad Hoc WiFi Network

Bluetooth technology supports reasonably high-speed wireless connections between two computers without the need for a network fixture. Bluetooth is more commonly used when networking a computer with a consumer handheld device like a cell phone. Most desktop and older computers do not possess Bluetooth capability. Bluetooth works best if both devices are in the same room in close proximity to each other. Consider Bluetooth if you have interest in networking with hand held devices and your computers lack Wi-Fi capability. 

Infrared networking existed on laptops years before either Wi-Fi or Bluetooth technologies became popular. Infrared connections only work between two computers, do not require a fixture, and are reasonably fast. Being very simple to set up and use, consider infrared if your computers support it and you lack the desire to invest effort in Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

If you find mention of an alternative wireless technology called Home RF, you can safely ignore it. Home RF technology became obsolete several years ago and is not a practical option for home networking.

Try it is the best home network option.

Lexmark Platinum Pro905 ????

Your Specification Sheet which under STANDARD BOX CONTENTS tells what was shipped with your printer. You should have received a USB cable which you can use to connect your printer to your PC.

If you want to connect to the printer through a wired network (usally via a router) then you will need to purchase a network cable, or rather a Cat. 5e cable of the appropriate length with RJ45 male connectors on both ends. This would be plugged in to the Ethernet port on the back of your computer. The reason for doing this is if you have several computers accessing your network printer they can do this directly without relying on the computer with the printer connection being turned on.

If you do not have a wired network or several computers accessing the printer you do not need to connect a network cable. Windows should detect your printer when you plug in the USB cable; it should not be necessary to work through the Add a printer function.

You don't have to choose 'wired'. You do have the option of setting up a wireless connection to your printer through a wireless network. Your printer has a built in wireless printer server and you can set up your printer to connect to your network without running a network cable.

Suggest you refer to page 101 of the User Guide for details on setting up the wireless network.

Trust this is helpful.

HOW DO I USE A WIRELESS PRINTER WITH NO ROUTER. I WANT TO PRINT FROM TWO COMPUTERS, THAT BOTH USE DIAL UP INTERNET


You can attach the printer directly through USB cable to your computer and print, or you can connect the printer and your computer to the same wireless network and then print using the wireless and your connection.
Internet is not necessary, only a communication path needs to be established. For this whether its your neighbor's wifi network, your own wifi network, a usb cable connection between your pc and printer etc printing will be accomplished.

I had the same problem with my CLX-3175FW. It would find my wireless router, but once I entered the WPA key, there was no connection. I solved this by taking the machine over to the wireless router, and then connect them by using a regular network cable. I followed the instructions in the book which came with the product, and then removed the network cable. After this the machine is connected to the wireless network. Regretfully, I still have problems printing wirelessly, so I bought an USB cable to connect the machine directly to my desktop :(

By network cable, you mean CAT5 or CAT6 actual network cable, or did you mean USB cable? If you are connecting directly from your printer to your computer with network cable, it would need to be a cross over cable, not regular network cable. If you are using USB cable, here is a link to Samsung for your ML-1630W operating instructions. Reference page 3.2 for using USB with software CD.

Can't connect the printer to the computer


Here is a link to the setup instructions for your printer. and another link to the setup guide
Because your printer can be configured for wireless printing, it probably did not come with a usb cable. If your system or network is not set up for wireless communications, you will have to purchase a USB cable to connect to the back of the printer to use it, or get a router or wireless card for your computer.
If you already have a wireless network set up, follow the instructions here

Cable problem


Usb extension cables may give you troubles, buy a longer usb single cable, possibly a well sielded one (ask seller) long usb cable can give you troubles due to the bigger signal loss on a longer wire.
