Re: a change of configaration

Have you changed the IP address back to what the router used to be before the reset? If not then enter a new IP address in the machine and add new port in the driver for that same address then try.

95% sure that is all that is hope it helps
Thanks J

This printer is connected to 1 pc via usb and prints via the network from pc 2 and suddenly stopped printing from pc no 3 but still prints from pc 2

If the printer is printing from pc1 that means the usb port is ok. If prints from pc2 that means the network port is ok, so the problem is not in the printer but in PC3. Check connection of pc3 to the network, check the settings, check recently installed programs - especially firewall or new antivirus version. Scan for viruses - there are some blocking traffic. You can even turn the pc3 back in time using the system restore service.
Hope this helps.

My lexmark printer will not print recently moved using new provider for internet computer is mac os x

If your printer was connected wireless to your system prior to changing internet provider, you may need to reset your printer's wireless network adapter first and then reconfigure it to reconnect to your new wireless network.

Printer is not responding. Canon Mp 620. wireless. no problem with laptops or wireless network

This might happen if you recently reset/changed your internet access (e.g. resetting your modem and changing your access settings such as renaming an SSID access point, changing your access password, etc.). Reinstall the software and configure your network access settings (like you did when you first set up the printer - with USB cable. Refer to your manual).

My MFC-490cw connects to the wireless internet and so does my computer. However I am still unable to print, scan, etc... The status monitor claims it is offline. I recently switched routers and it seemed to cause the problem. Any ideas on a fix?

Cannot print from laptop to printer using wireless print server

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.

My Lexmark 9350 won't print from a wireless notebook.

If you are using a Vista machine. First,make sure you don't have two conflicting firewalls active in your firewall menu. If you have a built in firewall in your dsl or cable modem I suggest not using windows firewall. If you don't have two firewalls active and you are only using Windows firewall, you may have to allow the spool portions of your lexmark program through Windows firewall manually.Check your windows firewall and make sure all parts of the lexmark application are allowed.Also make sure you have installed the latest lexmark drivers on your notebook via lexmark update. I suggest anytime you are installing drivers that you install them using your administrator account. I also recommend unblocking the installation exe before you install. To do this when you download the update, right click on it click on properties click on "unblock" at the bottom then click ok.Right click again on the installation exe and click on administrator. This gives you administrator rights to run and install all portions of the exe file.
