SOURCE: Lexmar 4875 Flatbed Wireless printer not connecting to the networ

I know you posted this in May, so have probably given up and bought a new printer by now, but I thought it worth mentioning that I had the same problem exactly (though without the same number of iphones and laptops!).
Buried away in some documentation on the driver CD, is the fact that the X4875 can't communicate with a secure wireless network that uses a TKIP algorithm - it can only handle AES. My router used TKIP out of the box, and I never thought to change is, especially as it's stronger than AES. However, changing it to AES solved the problem.
By the way, if you're using Vista, you may find that you have to run the install package in Windows XP compatibility mode, and then when the install is complete, manually change every .exe under c:\program files\lexmark\.. to run in XP compatibilty mode too. Works for me (Vista Business), but didn't work wirelessly at all before. Good luck,
Chris J.

    SOURCE: my lexmark x4975 will connect by USB but will not

    With the wifi light off, it's not possible to make wireless connection go through. The wifi light should light up orange before configuring it to work wireless. Try this, press Settings(wrench icon) > Network/Wireless Setup, then Ok > Reset Network Adapter, then Ok. Wait for the wifi light to show up orange in few seconds. If no go, unplug the power supply(the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached). Wait for 10-15 seconds before plugging it back in the printer. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

    How to stop orange wi fi light from blinking


    The blinking WiFi light on your printer could indicate that it's trying to communicate with your wireless network or it's not connected to your wireless network anymore. A quick fix to this problem can be achieved by rebooting your system. Simply unplug and re-plug your printer and your wireless router into the power outlet and reboot your computer. Once everything turns back on, check the status of the WiFi light and try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.
    You can also do the following steps to reset the printer wireless network adapter:1. From the printer operator panel, press the Setup button.2. Select Network Setup.3. Select Reset Network Adapter.4. Hit the OK button.
    The WiFi light will momentarily turn off and then on solid orange. You can then try to reconfigure the printer to connect to wireless network using the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility application on your computer. Go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark 4600 Series folder > Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility. Simply follow the instructions on your computer screen.
    However, if you wish to have it connected directly to your computer. Simply connect the printer with the USB cable that came with it in the package.

    Here are some guidelines to identify and fix your wireless communication issue:
    • What is the status of the Wi-Fi light on the printer? Green light means that it's connected to a wireless network while Orange light means it's not connected to a network.
    • Try to print the printer's wireless network settings to determine if it's connected to your own wireless network. On the printer operator panel, touch the Setup button > Network Setup > Print Setup Page. Your printer will then print the its wireless network information page. Ensure that the printer is connected to your network by checking the Network Card Status, Wireless SSID, Quality or Trouble Code.
    • If printer is not connected to your network, you may need to reset your printer's wireless network settings. On the printer operator panel, press Setup button > Network Setup > Reset Network Settings. The Wi-Fi light on the printer will momentarily turn off then back on to solid orange. You can then run the Wireless Setup Utility application on your computer to reconfigure the printer to connect to your wireless network. On your computer, launch the Lexmark Printer Home application > go to Settings tab > Wireless Setup Utility. Please follow the instructions on your computer screen.
    If you still need assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

    Try to reset the printer's wireless network settings. On the printer operator panel, press Setup button > Network Setup > Wireless Setup > Reset Network Adapter > press check to confirm.
    Re-launch the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility to connect the printer to your network. If you have a firewall enabled, make sure to allow full access to all Lexmark software and printer communication processes in the program rules/permissions for your firewall. Also, place your printer where it receives excellent wireless signal quality and away from other electronic devices which can cause wireless interferences (e.g. cordless phones, microwave ovens, baby monitors, garage door openers, and other wireless electronics).
