Question about Actiontec (5GE583000-01) Router

1 Answer

Router MI424WR-D I just had FIOS installed. My problem is my printer is plugged into my laptop (into a USB Port). The printer is a Lexmark Z600 series. Does anyone know if this printer can be hooked into the router, so that the printer is wireless? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Steven,

You will not be able to setup this printer wirelessly to your router as it is because the printer has no networking capabilities(ethernet or wi-fi). If you want to share the printer throughout the network you need a wireless/wired print server or just enable file and printer sharing on the computer where the lexmark printer is connected the only downside with the second setup is the computer where the printer is connected must stay powered on all the time in order for the rest of the computers ion your network to print compared to the 1st setup with the a print server which is stand alone.

My DHCP is not assigning a dynamic address to one of my seven wired devices. I've had to switch over to a stati


On the second router just plug a port cable in from your main routers port into the wan port and then be sure to change the second routers gateway and IP address to a different number. Say that your main router IP is 198.18.1.1 and for your second router IP you could use 10.10.10.1 or what ever combo you want and then you should be able to use both routers together. Is this what you are trying to do?
Linksys routers as well as all routers with DHCP enabled should be able to handle up to 255 separate IP address's for a LAN network. Is the firmware of the Linksys the latest? If not, down load the latest firmware and flash the router to update it. Or, check out third party firmwares like Tomato to flash that tired Linksys and turn it into a real router.

I unplugged my 645z lexmark printer for two days and now my hp computer says it needs a driver but that doesn't work.what happened!


It seems that the computer is not able to detect your printer properly. You can switch the USB port connection meaning just try to unplug the usb cable of printer and connect to other spare usb port on your computer. Also you can uninstall the whole driver set and re-install it.
Cheers!

Whilst still installing the Lexmark Z600 software, it give a report 'remoteinstallation not successsful because the printer is not communicating'.


Hi. Check if printer is on. Make sure it's plugged in to a known working power outlet. Check if the USB cable you're using is still ok - no physical defects. Or you can try using a different USB installation cable. Once you connect printer via usb cable to pc, it should recognize it even if you're not trying to run the software yet. Hope this helps.

Lexmark Z600 printer, get an unable to cimmunicate with the printer, I get a power light and have checked the usb cable same msg. repeats


With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install:
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue
