Question about Lexmark N4050e 802.11g Wireless Print Srv(USB)

Open Question

How do you set up network scanning with lexmark N4050e ?

Have installed wireless Print server as per instructions and then
attached printer (lexmark X543) to print server with USB cable and installed drivers for printer as per instructions.
Printing from PC to the wireless Print Server/attached printer works fine. No problems.

BUT can't scan from printer.
Problem is I can't see IP address of printer on the network - just that of the Print Server. So I can't set up a scan profile from the web admin page of the Printer as I can't access that page.
I have fixed the IP address of printer to a number valid in my local wireless LAN using the admin menus on the printer.
Any ideas ???
Thanks.

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!

SOURCE: 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.

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.

How do i set up my wireless canon printer to my laptop? I keep getting messages saying can't find the printer.


Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Instructions
Things You'll Need: · Wireless print server
· USB printer
· Ethernet cable
· Computer
1. Step 1
Obtain a wireless print server that is compatible with both your wireless network and your printer. While the printer’s documentation may not explicitly say that it is compatible with a print sever, many are compatible, and this can be verified by checking the website of the print server’s manufacturer. If you have a multifunction printer, only the print function will work with most wireless print servers, though a few have recently added support for scanning and the printer’s other functions.
Step 2 Read all of the documentation that came with the wireless print server. The manual will detail the specifics of the installation routine.
Step 3 Connect the printer to the wireless print server via the USB cable. Connect the print server’s Ac adapter and turn the unit on.
Step 4 Connect an Ethernet cable between the wireless print server and your computer. This will be used for the initial setup only.
Step 5 Insert the CD supplied with the print server into your CD-Rom drive. Start the software if it does not start automatically. The application will walk you through the installation process, which includes setting the unit’s IP address, setting an access password, configuring it to connect to the wireless network, installing the drivers that allow the print server to use the printer and installing the print drivers on your computers.
Step 6 Choose how your print server will be addressed. Most units are set up to use dynamic addressing by default, which means that your wireless router will assign an IP address to it. This allows the server to be easily installed on the network, but it also means that the IP address of the printer may change over time. The other option is to assign a static IP address to your print server. This option is more reliable, because the print server will always use the same IP address, making it easier for the computers to find the printer and easier to access the print server’s online configuration application. If your router has the IP address of 192.168.0.1, for instance, set the print server to something like 192.168.0.2 or 192.168.0.3, as long as another device does not use that address.
Step 7
Set a password to be used to access the unit’s online configuration application.
Step 8 Configure the print server to access your wireless network. Give it the same SSID network name as your router and set it to use the same wireless channel. If encryption is used on the router, enable encryption on the print server, and enter the encryption key or password.
Step 9 Follow the instructions given by the print server’s software for installing printer drivers on the unit.
Step 10
Disconnect the Ethernet cable and allow the unit to connect via the wireless network.
Step 11 Install the printing drivers on each computer that will use the printer.
Step 12 Access the print server’s online configuration application to verify all settings by entering the IP address of the unit into a web browser, using the “http://192.168.0.2” format. Enter the administrator name and password.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
