Question about Lexmark X3550 ALL-IN-ONE InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Cannot print from laptop to printer using wireless print server

I have a Lexmark X3550 printer. I originally used it connected directly to my desktop computer. I recently purchased an Acer Extensa 4420 laptop and I installed a Lexmark wireless print server in the printer. When I first loaded the printer driver on the laptop and set it up to print, it worked just fine. For some reason, I can no longer print wirelessly using my laptop, but it works just fine using the desktop. The desktop prints to the printer wirelessly through my router. Is there some setting on the laptop that is preventing me from printing wirelessly?

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.

Can we use MF6550 for wireless network?


If you use a wireless USB print server like this . Keep in mind that you may not get all functions such as scanning to work but it will allow for printing for sure. If the scanning works consider it a bonus.

I cant hook my Lexmark X3550 to a wireless network. How do I do this?


You will need a print server to do this. Many stand-alone USB print servers do not support the bi-directional communication needed for the scanner of an all-in-one. (Check the specs if you are using one of these.)

A better option would be to connect the printer via USB to one computer and then share it across the network. A Windows 7 Home Group for example would be a simple way to set the feature. You may need to set the firewall to Trust the other machines in the network.

Set up the printer on the first computer as you normally would. Get the software from http://www1.lexmark.com/products/view/All-in-Ones/Lexmark-X3550/catId=cat10004-category&prodId=3924-product;jsessionid=51301F9D038596164B244112F2F14143.node4 if needed; click on Download Drivers. Then install the software on the first computer and then connect the USB cable. Set the printer to be shared (Start > Devices and Printers and right click on the printer. Find Printer Properties and the Sharing Tab.)

Make sure that the Home Group is set up and all the computers have joined the Home Group if using that feature. For other Windows computers on the network, get the software and then add the printer as a network printer from the Devices and Printers Add a Printer Wizard. If the printer doesn't show up, check the firewall and sharing.

I hope this helps.

(I have never connected an all-in-one over a Home Group. I do not know if the scanner works in that case.)

I have a Lexmark X3550 printer and need a wireless adapter card, but cannot find this anywhere since Lexmark no longer carries this part. Is there another wireless adapter card that would be compatable...


Try E-Bay, you might be lucky.
Failing that, you can try using a LAN print server, connect the printer to the print server and connect the printer server to your LAN.
Then any computers on your LAN can print to this printer.
OR
Connect the printer to your computer and set it up as a shared printer and if your computer is connected to the LAN then any computer can print to this printer provided you computer and printer are switched on.

I have my Lexmark printer (X3550) connected to my desk top and now have a laptop as well. I have a wireless modem and would like to setup my laptop with the printer as well.


If the printer is using bluetooth then get the laptop activated with the bluetooth with the same passkey ... get the printer and laptop to activate bluetooth -- open bluetooth manager and select device then put in the passkey in both the sets to communicate.
Now you have the printer connected and can send your documents for printing.

Can i wirelessly connect my Lexmark X2600 printer to my Toshiba Laptop


I regret to inform you that the Lexmark X2600 is a USB based printer, however, you can use a wireless print server to turn this printer into a wireless one. You can check the internet on how wireless print servers work. Thanks.

Cant connect lexmark X3550 to laptop wirelessly..


If you are trying to connect to a network printer you need to install a network printer NOT a PC install. You would have to browse for the "Remote" printer, from the CLIENT. The printer that is on the "Master" PC will have to have the printer already installed and "shared" as well, FIRST. Then you go to the remote and install a NETWORKED printer....find it on the network, and connect, it will actually get the drivers from the "Master" PC, see. Plus BOTH PC's will have to have a name password & and be on the same "Workgroup" as well. If you want to enable documents to be exchanged to print between PC's you will have to enable "Sharing" on each, Drive, or Folders as well, if you wish.
