Thw wifi in the lexmark z1420 is not turning on at all


Please try to reset your printer's wireless network settings. Refer to this article on How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings. Once you reset the printer's network settings, the Wi-Fi light will momentarily turn off then on with orange light.
You can then run the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility application on your computer to reconfigure the printer to reconnect to your wireless network.

My lexmark x4650 printer is connected to the wifi, but the orange light is blinking. And nothing is able to print. When I look at the printers activity it shows the document that im trying to print but...


When you installed your printer, you had to install the software on your PC. So go to your PC's start menu, go to Programs, select Lexmark software, select Tools and then select Wifi Configuration Utility. It will open a window which will give you step by step instruction on re-configuring your wifi settings. When you are doing this, make sure your printer is connected to your PC via the USB cable.

How do I connect a Kodak ESP 5200 Printer to a Local Area Network? To begin with, the LAN Hub uses Ethernet connectors, and the Printer has only a USB2


I had major problems initially. Connecting the printer to the Router was easy but after dificulties I found the answer on the Net as printed below:

1. Determine the IP address of the printer - usually you can print a configuration page and find it there.

2. Start the Add Printer wizard. Do not select Network Printer - select Local Printer and clear any check boxes for auto detection.

3. Select Create new port - select Standard TCP/IP port and configure it
with the IP address of the HP.

My lexmark z1420 has been in the loft for some time, I have switched it n anf the wi-fi light keeps flashing orange no green?


Try to print the wireless settings page to determine if your printer is still on the same wireless network as your router and computer. To print the page, follow the steps in these article on How to Print the Network Settings Page on the Z1400 & Z1500 Series Inkjet Printer; a brief explanation of its values. On the page, check the Status, SSID and also the IP address and see if it's connected to your network. Otherwise, you may need to reset your Lexmark Z1420's wireless network adapter and reconfigure it. To reset, follow the steps in this article on How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings. Launch the Lexmark wireless setup utility to reconfigure the printer to your wireless network.
Hope this helps.

The wireless router needs to configured with the wireless settings, SSID, encryption etc. Then the wireless card in the Toshiba needs to be configured with the wireless router's SSID, encryption etc.

My lexmark z1420 is not wireless - it used to be - what has happened?


The printer may still have the old settings from your router in its wireless network adapter. You will need to reset the Lexmark Z1420 wireless network adapter first. To do this, follow the instructions found in the article on this link: http://bit.ly/dDn8C2. Once you'll have a solid orange wifi light again, run the Wireless Setup Utility like how you setup the printer for wireless connection for the first time. Let me know if you still need more assistance. Thanks.

Why can my z1420 not find my new router . It worked on the old one. When I try to print I get a message saying 'problem communicating with the printer.


Most probably the printer network settings is still configured with the settings of your old router. You will need to reset the printer's network settings before configuring it with the new one. Here's an article in the Lexmark website on how to reset the Lexmark Z1420. http://bit.ly/bVr6L1. Just follow the instructions. Basically, all you need to achieve is to have a solid orange wifi light on. Then, install the printer with the new network like how you're setting it up for the first time. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Epson sx510w prints using a cable but can't get it to print wireless


The specs for your model Epson allows you to connect the you network by wireless and by LAN cable.

The specs are as follows :-
Wi-Fi Wireless LAN IEEE 802.11b/g – compatible with 802.11n*
*Transmission rate will be limited to 802.11g and will operate in the 2.4 GHz frequency band
Ethernet Wired LAN IEEE 802.3 (100BASE-TX, 10BASE-T)
Other PictBridge
Wireless security
WEP – 64bit
WEP – 128bit
WPA – PSK (TKIP) – compliant with WPA2
WPA – PSK (AES) – compliant with WPA2

To connect the printer by a LAN cable you need to configure the Epson for an IP address that suits your network configuration and connect the LAN cable to your wireless router/hub.

The reason why you cannot print using wireless is because the wireless configuration in the Epson is not setup with the router's wireless configuration ie. SSID WPA encryption etc.

For instructions of setting up a LAN network printer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3668797-setting_up_shared_network_printer

For instructions on setting up a wireless printer, the Epson wireless settings need to be configured with the router's wireless settings. Go into your router's wireless and note the SSID, and encryption settings etc and configure the Epson's wireless settings with the router's wireless settings. This will allow the Epson to connect to the wireless router. Please click on this link for instructions to secure your wireless network, configure the wireless router (if you have not already do so) and configure the wireless card in the computers and wireless printer (the instructions for configuring the wireless card in the printer is the same as for the wireless card in the computers via the printer's menu screen).
