Please install the Broadmin Software given to you on cd. Did you read the network handbook which can be found on the cd, too (other software/handbook)? Your prob is hard to find, without knowing what system (win or mac)and what hardware you run. Sometimes deactivting the firewall is the solution.

Remote printing was working and then it stopped.


If this is a network printer. You can reinstall the drivers that came with the printer as a local printer, then go into control panel open the 'printers and faxes' right click on the printer that you reinstalled, 'properties' go to ports tab, select add port, -> 'standard tcp/ip port' -> 'new port' -> next -> put in the ip address for the printer, it will be the scheme of you subnet for example if your ip address for your computer is set to 192.168.1.1 you would use the ip address for the printer port of 192.168.1.2. after that is done press next-> after that you will be set as a network printer. Try to print a test page.

If this does not work, you can install the printer locally on a separte computer, such as your home pc, and make the printer a share. Then simply add the share printer on your laptop. for example; after you install the printer on your home pc, go under control panel, -> right click the printer -> sharing-> enable printer sharing... -> Next -> You will be prompted on the sharing tab-> select 'share this printer' -> type a share name, such as 'Lexmark2' -> click ok. at this point you will see a hand under the printer, showing it is shared.

Note: you will need to get the computer name of the pc that the printer is locally installed, your home pc. for this example lets name the pc 'home' you can find the name of your pc by right clicking on my computer and select properties. go to the computer name tab.
also remember we named the printer share 'lexmark2'

now go to your labtop, go to the control panel and select 'printers and faxes' select add a printer on the right column. a windows will pop up, click next -> select 'A network printer, or printer.....' click on the radio buttion that reads 'Connect to this printer (or to browse.....' should be the 2nd option. this is where you are going to use the computer name and printer name.

put in

\homelexmark2

click next -> then finish

print a test page, from your labtop.

If you need further help please contact me.

Laptop to access printer wireless


First, can your labtop see your other computer on the network. If it cannot see the other computer you will not be able to print from your laptop. I had a lot of troublel with this until I purchased a program called Network Magic from www.purenetworks.com. It was easy to install and made setting up my network and shared printers easy. It cost $30.00 and is worth every penny.

LEXMARK 8350 ALL IN ONE PRINTER


dont think the printer is wireless..you have to use usb cable to print from laptop unless you have another desktop pc on your network that you could connect printer to and access that pc from your laptop.
