Question about Kodak Office Equipment & Supplies
Dear Kodak I am trying to print from a Inspiron 1420 laptop – Vista OS to a Kodak 5500 AiO, wirelessly. My
other computer is a Vostro 1400 laptop – Windows XP OS. I am running a Linksys WRT54G router
on my network. The printer is connected to the Vostro laptop via USB. I can print from the Vostro
but not from the Inspiron computer.Thank You for your helpTed Schank
If you have a USB connector on your router, it should work, but you may have to look at your router documentation for the setup. You will need to install the printer drivers on each machine in the network to use the printer.
You must connect the printer to your wireless network using the printer control panel WiFi Setup Wizard before you install the All-in-One Printer Software on your computer.
When you connect the printer to your wireless router, you need to know if your SSID (network name) is being broadcast. If your router's network name is set to broadcast, the printer control panel wizard will display your SSID when you scan for networks. If the SSID broadcast is disabled on your router, you must select Unlisted network on the printer and manually enter the SSID to connect. Do the following to set up and install the hardware and software.
Connecting the printer to your wireless router:
"Searching for wireless networks..." displays, followed by a list of wireless networks that are broadcasting within range of your printer.
NOTE: If the all-in-one printer was previously connected to a network, "Your printer is already configured for WiFi network [name of network]" displays. Press OK to change the settings.
Using the 4-way navigation button and the OK button, enter the alphanumeric characters of the network key that exactly matches your wireless router key or password (for example: NewYork82655). Navigate to Done, then press OK.
NOTE: The password is case-sensitive. Click abc/ABC to switch between uppercase and lowercase characters as necessary.
The Wi-Fi Status Light should now continually illuminate, indicating that you have a good connection between the printer and your network.
Installing the printer software:
The Install Wizard - Welcome screen displays.
NOTE: If the system does not find your wireless printer, you may have to manually allow inbound and outbound permission through your firewall for certain required computer services.
