Make sure Router and Printer are setup with DHCP. This will assign an IP to the printer. Once they are communicating, setup the printer on the computer with the IP address, and install printer drivers.

Try plugging it in directly.
Sometimes the wifi printer has to be set up AFTER the hardwire setup.
If you are desparate, plug it in directly to your computer to get your job done and figure out the wifi later.

Unable to communicate thru WiFi to print


A solid green Wi-Fi light indicates that it is connected to a wireless network. An orange light indicates that it is not connected to a network.
Another way to determine if your printer is connected to your network is to print the wireless network setup page. From the printer operator panel, press the Setup button (wrench icon) > Network Setup > Print Setup Page. Your printer will then print the network settings. Check the SSID, signal strength, or trouble code.
A quick fix to this problem (especially if your printer was working fine before with your wireless network) can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC.

I think I accidently cleared my wireless wifi on my printer.... the wifi light is orange instead of green so not connecting


Try to print the network settings page to determine if your printer is still connected to your wireless network or not. On the printer operator panel, press the Setup button -> Network Setup -> Print Setup Page. Check the SSID if the printer is still registered to your wireless network. If not, you may need to reset your printer's wireless network adapter. Press Setup -> Network Setup -> Reset Network Adapter. The wifi light on your printer will then momentarily turn off. Once it turns on solid orange again, you may reconfigure your printer to connect to your wireless network.

If your printer is still registered to your wireless network, then it could be just a slight communication problem. Try to unplug and replug your printer into the power outlet to reset it. Doing this usually fixes minor communication issues.

When you installed your printer, you had to install the software on your PC. So go to your PC's start menu, go to Programs, select Lexmark software, select Tools and then select Wifi Configuration Utility. It will open a window which will give you step by step instruction on re-configuring your wifi settings. When you are doing this, make sure your printer is connected to your PC via the USB cable.

I have a WIFI and I heard that I can connect my HP OFFICEJET 5610 ALL IN ONE into wireless using my WIFI connection. Please assist me. Thanks a lot, Toha ****


hi tohafaniwang
the HP OFFICEJET 5610 doesn't have an internal wireless adaptor therefore you would not be able to connect it wirelessly to your wifi network. Although there is an option to get a wireless LAN routher/printserver wherein you would connect the printer to the wifi print server/router using the usb 2.0 cable. using this you would be able to setup that all that connects to your wifi network would be able to print to your printer.

Hope this helps

Wifi laptop will not print to printer - not a wifi printer


Check if the printer has a wireless option. Actually this issue is complex. First thing first, you can print wirelessly from your laptop within the WIFI range in a case that your printer do have wireless on in. It is impossible to print wirelessly from the wired printer through LAN.

One thing, I guess you don't have a wireless router. You need to have a wireless router like LINKSYS that is easy to setup then try to connect wirelessly to the wired printer. There I am not too sure if your can do a printing option from your laptop wirelessly.

Lastly, check if you have a ROUTER and need to set it up on your laptop and on the network LAN. You may now have a NETWORK printer in this regards. Thank you.

Canon mp620 not connecting to my wifi laptop


This could happen if the port that you are using is not the right one.

When you are using a printer wireless, you need to use the Standard TCP/IP port, to setup a printer port, do the following

Right click on printer icon, select properties
Click on Add port, select new port
Enter the IP address of the printer, this can be obtained by printing the settings page from the printer.

Note: please setup a static IP for your printer, else everytime you restart you may endup with a new IP

Let me know if this works,

I have a new Kodak ESP 7 printer and have not been able to set it up to communicate with my Mac OS 10.5 laptop. I can print if I have it plugged into the USB. I understand I might need an extra unit to...


Hi. I can help you connect your wireless ESP 7 to your Mac laptop.

The first step is to connect your printer to your wireless network. Navigate to the menu on the LCD of the printer and select Network Settings/WiFi Setup Wizard. The blue WiFi LED should be illuminating steady if the printer is connected to your WiFi network.

The second step is to add the WiFi printer to your Mac using the Print & Fax System Preference...
1. Under the Apple Menu, select System Preferences
2. Select Print & Fax
3. Click the "+" sign to add a printer
4. Select the Kodak ESP 7 listed with the Bonjour connection
5. Click the Add button.

The final step is to verify that you are printing to the WiFi printer when you attempt to print. In the Print Dialog box, verify the selected printer is named "KodakESP7+1234" where the last four digits are unique to your printer. If the printer you have selected is "Eastman Kodak Company KODAK ESP 7 AiO", then you are attempting to print using USB and this will not work unless you have a USB cable connected.
I hope this helps.
