Just bought a kodak esp 7 3-in-1 printer; wireless capability; connected it to laptop (toshiba) using ad hoc wireless connection; wifi works; added drivers but status monitor says printer is disconnected. installed and uninstalled several times; got it working for a few hours a couple of days ago; shut everything off, now it's not connecting anymore. made sure all firewalls allowed everything needed from kodak could get in. driving me crazy.

check the website of your printer such as if its a Lexmark go to lexmark.com and see if the model number is compatable with the Vista programming. A lot of printers do not operate with Vista. I have three printers that only operate with XP and Windows 7
When you added the WPS encryption ket to your wireless router, this secures your wireless network from unauthorized access to you wireless network. To allow your wireless computers and wireless printer to communicate with your wireless network the wireless cards in the computers and printer needs to be configured with the WPA encryption settings that you configured in the wireless router.
This is one of the common connectivity issues marring the benefits of having a wireless printer. In this situation your printer will not print when connected wirelessly but would need you to set it up with your system using a USB cable. Try resetting the IP of your system to what is mentioned in the printer and in case there is a router connecting your printer and system then use the IP address of router and put it in your system. This should help you fix this printer issue.
Try a new USB cable. Scanners require bidirectional communication with the computer and thus can fail when printer itself works. (If you use a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection.) Also try changing USB ports.
Another thing to try is to remove the TWAIN driver and reinstall it. This requires the original software CD from Kodak. 1. From your computer desktop, click Start > Run. (In Windows 7, type run in the search box then click on Run.) 2. Type %windir%, then click OK. 3. Double-click twain_32. 4. Right-click Kodak, then select Delete. 5. Insert the KODAK All-in-One Printer Software CD into the appropriate drive, then go to D: > printer > scanner. NOTE: The CD is indicated by D: above. The CD drive may be a different letter on your computer. 6. Double-click aioscannr.msi, then follow the instructions to remove it. 7. Go to D: > printer > scanner, then double-click aioscannr.msi, and follow the instructions to install the file. 8. Open Home Center Software: a. Select Scan Documents and Pictures. b. Scan a document.
Unfortunately, if the error persists, the scanner may need service. Contact Kodak: http://www.kodak.com/go/contact .
The ACTIONTEC GT124, M1000 and PK5000 Routers are not compatible with wireless-enabled all-in-one printers. These routers cannot connect to your all-in-one printer because they do not support the multicast protocol. Contact your router supplier for additional assistance and to determine if your router will be able to support the muticast protocol in the future.

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.
