Wireless printer gets ip address different from my routers ip add

My lexmark x4650 keeps acquiring an ip address different from my linksys routers address, so the wireless function won't work. it works with the usb cord, but that's not why I bought the printer. I've reset my router and the network settings on the printer, but it still keeps acquiring a different IP. Any suggestions?

Is the wireless network on you router secured? a 169.254.x.x ip is an invalid ip meaning, it's not connected wirelessly to the router yet.

Check on the wireless network the printer is connecting to. Make sure it is your router.

How do i connect my laptop to printer over a wireless network


First you want to make sure your printer has wireless capability. If yes, you want to make sure wireless is turned on. Log into your wireless router, and go DHCP section to find out what IP that assigned to printer. Once you know the IP, you can change the port of printer to that IP via control panel and printers and faxes. Good luck and let me know if need additional help.

Tip

Set up a Wireless printer on your Router for use with a wired PC


First install the Wireless printer driver using the Wizard by connecting either the Ethernet cable to the router during the install process when asked this will set up your wireless laptop with the correct printer port based on the Wireless Node Name it will also use the printers inbuilt MAC address. This is standard install and will work for all your Wireless PC's however if you have a Wired (ethernet) PC connected to your Router this process will not work a wireless port will not work with a wired computer.

Follow my 3 steps below to set up standard IP ports for Wired PC's also connected to your Router.

STEP 1: Find your MAC address for the wireless printer (all types of Network Cards will have one so this is no different) this will either be found under the LCD control panel or may even be printer on the bottom of the printer or Print server if it is seperate set this MAC address with an IP address as a reservation in your admin panel of your router 192.168.0.10 in this example.

You can normally enter your Router this using 192.168.0.1 typed in your browser (not the search engine) as all routers are different check here for your make and model http://www.routerpasswords.com if you can't find the MAC address try using ipconfig /all from them command prompt it will be the physical address aka the MAC address

STEP 2:
Install the Printer as a USB printer port by connecting the USB cable to the PC you want the wired printer driver installed on when finished go to the printer driver properties for the driver you have just added, click the port tab and click add standard IP port as shown below, then disconnect the USB lead this is only required to make sure the correct inf file is used on the driver install and connect your Ethernet cable from you computers NIC to a spare RJ45 socket on the Router.

STEP 3: To check that the Printer has the correct IP address then test using the tracert OR ping command for the IP address that you have reserved on your router, this is a necessary step otherwise when the lease expires it may take another IP address and your Printer driver will not work unless your printer has the reserved address, it will throw a printer error.

c:ping 192.168.0.10

(this example shows a Standard TCP/IP Port for a Brother DCP-340CW)

Also check in your routers admin panel to see if the Wireless Printer is set up with the correct IP and MAC address, if you still can't find it eliminate your known MAC addresses from all your network cards the one left will be your Printer Server NIC in your Wireless Printer.

If you have setup the incorrect IP and or MAC address you will get this window when you try to add the TCP/IP port

DSL line problems required us to reset the wireless router in the process the Lemarck x4650 no longer connects to laptop. Fix?


get t the wireless card of the printer ..and reconnect it in the actual conditions of the router ..just open the card ..and scan for network ..when you find it ..connect ...and insert the network password if it has the security activated..Practically connect the printer again like you connect a wireless laptop ..
If the connection is made to one of the ports of the router ..by cable ..than open the lan card in the printer and insert the values corespondent to the position in the port .. or put it to automatically (obtain an IP address automatically ) if the router supports it ..and it is not necesarry to insert the addresses a manually ....if it is ..get to the other option ..use the following Ip address ..and insert the values like in the computer that connects in the near by port ..only at the IP address insert the last digit with one unit more than the port near it ..like thi s..
if the printer is in the 4th port ..and the computer near it in 3rd has the Ip address 192.168.1 4..the printer will became ..192.168.1.5 (they are always with one digit more..cause the router is 1..the rest since the port one are from 2...3..and so on ..

Lexmark X644e All-In-One has link light, but does not print or ping.


If you have a router or wireless router, these routers assign a standard class C network address ie. 198.168.0.xxx or 192.168.1.xxx behind the real IP address issued by your ISP.

The reason why you cannot ping the print server could be that your computer and print server have different IP address ranges. Eg. the IP address on both the print server and the computer must contain the same first three group of numbers, only the last numbers are different.

Try configure the print server's IP address again.

I have a wire less network set up and want to use my lexmark x1270 so i can print wireless but cable is USB and do i need to get a cable to put into my router or??


You can't set it up wirelessly, persay. but you can use a special bluetooth adapter in the "pic bridge" slot on the front. I have seen them on e-bay from £5($8) to £12($17) or so.

Can't connect wirelessly to a lexmark x4850


Try:
  1. write down the MAC address of your Lexmark,
  2. log into the router and reserve an IP address with that MAC
  3. Setup the Wireless parameters (SSID, Encryption to WPA or WPA2 Personal, assign a Pass Phrase you can remember. Then save the config and reset the router.
  4. on the Lexmark console, navigate to wireless settings and configure with the matching parameters as set in step 3.
  5. If the wireless connection is matched and connected, open up Internet Browser and type in the IP address in Step 2
  6. It should have a web-interface allowing you to customize it.
  7. Install the printer with the driver disc but should now look for a Networked option. or simply Add or Change the Port of your existing Printer's Properties.

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.
