LexmarLk X4850 fax wireless set-up

Hi, I just purchased a Lexmark X4850 printer which has wireless capability and I am having trouble getting the computer to print. I have a AT&T wireless modem/router that can also have up to 4 computers plugged in directly to the modem/router. I set up the printer and plugged it into my desktop using a usb cord. It said it was fine & printed a test sheet ok. I then ran the installation disc to set the printer up for wireless operation so that my daughter could also use the printer using the wireless feature. But now I can't get the printer to print anything from my desktop? I called Lexmark tech support and was told I can't have it both ways. Either I use the printer only with my printer(using the usb cable), or remove the usb cable & get a wireless pci card for my desktop. I wanted to be able to use the printer for my desktop, as well as my daugter's laptop, which has wireless capability. Any suggestions? I have the Lexmark X4850 and cannot figure out how to fax via my wireless connection. Does the fax work wirelessly or does it have to be hooked up to a phone line? Any help would be greatly appreciated. email likemom@neo.rr.com with solution.

Printing: since Lexmark say you can either connect wirelessly or wired and not both, you must either connect your daughter's machine to the hub by wire or yourself to the printer wirelessly.

Fax: this will need a phone line.

Have you talked with Lexmark Technical Support? I suspect you may have to escalate this beyond level one. Vista on Mac is likely to have issues that differ from other Vista environments.

Can't connect wirelessly to a lexmark x4850


Try:
  1. write down the MAC address of your Lexmark,
  2. log into the router and reserve an IP address with that MAC
  3. Setup the Wireless parameters (SSID, Encryption to WPA or WPA2 Personal, assign a Pass Phrase you can remember. Then save the config and reset the router.
  4. on the Lexmark console, navigate to wireless settings and configure with the matching parameters as set in step 3.
  5. If the wireless connection is matched and connected, open up Internet Browser and type in the IP address in Step 2
  6. It should have a web-interface allowing you to customize it.
  7. Install the printer with the driver disc but should now look for a Networked option. or simply Add or Change the Port of your existing Printer's Properties.

Lexmark X4850 Wireless wont connect


Had a similar problem with my router, which was a 2WIRE router (furnished by AT&T - I have Uverse). Fixed it by going to the router's GUI (mine is 192.168.1.254), click on "View the home network". On the right side of the resulting screen, there is a section titled "wireless settings". Under that, click on "edit settings". Enter the login information (the default password is on a tag on the router). The next screen is "Configure the Wireless Network". Scroll down to the bottom and click on "Rescan". When I did this, my X4850 miraculously connected and started working.

Fax issues


Thanks for the response! I managed to do this myself,I was not aware that your PC must have a "phone modem" card! Once I installed one I already had on hand, it went flawlessly! Windows XP likes this printer!!! Nice "all in one" printer,for sure. I used the Lexmark to replace our Epson scanner and seperate printer, AND our clunky old fax mach. Thanks for such a helpful website. Regards, Jim
