You need to go to printers and faxes.  Set up a new networked printer.  Take the drivers off of your vista machine, because by using those drivers, vista is thinking that the printer is physically hooked up tot hat computer.

Is lexmark x7170 fax machine wireless compatible


The Lexmark X7170 printer does not support wireless printing. It doesn't have a wireless network adapter to connect to your wireless network.
If you want, you may contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for other printer options. You might find one that will suit your printing needs.

Lexmark X7170 Fax from Vista? When I start Fax Solutions, it fails and closes. I think driver is for XP/2003


If you still have the install disc for your printer, re-insert the disc in your hard driver to repair any corrupted Lexmark printer softwares. You may try the driver from the Lexmark website:
- X7170 driver for Vista 32-bit - X7170 driver for Vista 64-bit

Printer is connected via USB to a Win XP PC and prints fine. However will only print test print from networked Vista laptop?


I take it you the Win XP PC is on the same network that your Vista Laptop is on and that some how you must be able to share the printer through your XP PC?
I think you are experiencing the many issue that Vista has to offer.
Maybe think of actually seeing about placing the printer on a Network print server. This would solve your issue. I did this with my Brother Laser printer and it works great. I believe the print servers are coming down in price I am using a TRENDnet TP100 and it works great with my two wired network desktop PCs and the two wireless notbooks that both have Vista on them.

Hello,
The printer drivers must be installed on each computer. If computer A runs XP, you must install driver for XP on computert A; If machine B runs Vista, then you must install printer drivers for Vista on machine B.

Hope it helps.

Fond this on the Lexmark Website. Hope it helps.

Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· 1) Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· 2) Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· 3) Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· 4) While leaving the USB unconnected, Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.
