The port to which the printer is connected is not supported. Check the port


I'm assuming you are using a USB connection, not a Ethernet connection.

Try a different USB port (preferably in the REAR of the computer, not the front). It's not unusual to have 1 or 2 poorly-performing (low power) ports on a PC; some printers don't like those.

If you have a really old computer, it may have ancient USB type "1" (slow) ports instead of the newer 2.0 or 3.0 USB type. Some printers don't like old USB 1 ports, but it is not supposed to matter.

If all else fails, try another USB cord, or a shorter one. Some printers don't work well with cords longer than 4 feet, and USB cords can go bad.

Or, try the printer on another computer. If the same USB cord works fine there, YOUR computer has the problem (probably a USB port or USB driver issue).

Are you having issues with other USB devices? If so, it may be a Windows driver issue.

Good luck. If no help, post your exact printer model # here, or try contacting Lexmark.com support

What do I need to make my printer wireless?


You need 1) a wireless router with a USB port that supports the HP OfficeJet printer. 2) The software for your router to run a printer on the USB port. Obviously, you will need a USB A/B male end cable.Note: the scan features of the all-in-one may not work unless the printer is directly connected to the computer. Bi-directional communication is required for scanning and the router software may not support this completely.

Check the list of supported printers closely for older routers. I have a Cisco Linksys E4200 v.2. This router supports all the HP printers that I use.

If this is a new installation of the printer, first install the printer on the computer. If you have Windows 7, just connect the printer to the USB port on the laptop. This will install the OS drivers for the printer. (For Windows XP, go to the HP site and get the full software.)

Next install the wireless router between your modem and computer and set that up. (If you have DHCP (dynamic address allocation), it should be automatic. Otherwise follow the directions.) Next install the router software (for my router, it was Cisco Connect).

My next step was to launch the Cisco Connect program and connect the printer directly to the USB port on the router. In Cisco Connect, choose add a printer and find the printer connected to the router. Print a test page. (At times, I've had to reset the port that the printer is on in the Windows Control Panel Printer Properties. (For the Cisco Connect, the printer is on the DOT4 port.)

Other routers will be set up somewhat differently.

Another option is to have the printer connected to a desktop and then make it a shared printer with the wireless router communicating between the laptop and the desktop. This makes the desktop the print server, so it needs to be on when you want to print. If you have several computers with Windows, this can fairly easy to set up. Make sure that the computers are in the same Workgroup (XP) or Homegroup (Win7). Enable sharing and you are done.

I hope this helps.

(who has a OJ 7000 (with ethernet port) and a LJ1320 (USB) connected to the router. Three computers talk to these printers with the laptop on the wireless network. On an older router that didn't support the printers, the laptop was the server for a previous OfficeJet and one of the desktops was the server for the LaserJet.)

Keep getting error msg: printer status shows not attached to local port. how to recover shows non-LPT/USB port connections are not supported by this status monitor. printer worked a few days and now...


You have to be sure that you are connecting the printer in exact the same USB port. If you are connecting to a different port and not to the one from was disconnected, the Windows is installing another copy of your printer. Check this, I believe this is the solution to your problem.
