Question about Lexmark X6150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer not recognized

I have just purchased a new laptop and installed the software for a lexmark 6150. It works fine with another laptop using Windows XP, however the new computer has windows Vista. When I go to print, nothing happens, no message, no pop up. It seems like the printer isn't there. I have the printer icon and it is set to default. Is there a special driver I need for Vista? If so, can you tell me where to find it?

I am running this Lexmark 6150 printer connected to the computer via usb cable. I have a wireless laptop, how can I print on the Lexmark 6150 from the laptop the laptop is connected to the same modem...

You can enable printer sharing on the computer where the printer is connected, then share the printer so it can be accessed by others on the network. The steps vary depending on which version of Windows the computer is running, so use the help screen. The steps will be listed for you to follow.

On your wireless computer, add the Lexmark printer as a network printer. You will probably need to install the printer drivers, so have the CD handy or download them from Lexmark's website.

Make sure both computers are members of the same workgroup, or the wireless computer won't be able to find the printer on your network. Also, the computer the Lexmark printer is connected to must be on and running for printing over the network.

An easier way to share your printer is by using a USB print server. One example is here. The server connects to your printer by the USB cable, and by an Ethernet cable to one of the wired ports on your router. Then any computer on the network can use the printer at any time.

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.

Lexmark X4850 wireless how to make it find the wireless network. I've had this printer working with my Vista laptop till recently; then I moved to another area, configured my new home network and Internet...

If the printer itself is wireless, it does not need to recognize your wireless computer network. Call Lexmark to walk you through proper installation. Lexmark's manuals are not adequate regarding setup, in my opinion.
