Question about Lexmark X4975 Wireless Color Multifunction All-In-One Inkjet Printer
I followed the sugested answer #2
I went to settings->Network setup (no network/wireless setup). There is no option to reset the network adaptor. (I reset the factory settings). Still no orage light on the WI FI indicator. But the printer recognises the network name and has a strong signal.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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,

Reset the Network Adapter of the printer by pressing the Settings button on the Operator Panel on the printer> Network Setup> Wireless Setup> Reset Network Adapter to Defaults> Yes. Reinstall/reconfigure the printer for wireless connection. Make sure you are using the correct wireless network information and that the computer belongs to that network. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

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.
