Wireless Printer will not work

I have a wireless laptop and a netgear wireless router. I also connected my lexmark 4300 to the router with a cable. I used to be able to print no prob. I can get online(as you can tell), but I cannot get my printer to coomunicate with the laptop. I took my inspiron 6000 in because I think I had a virus. I had to reinstall a driver for my my touch pad after I got it back so there may be something else missing, but I do not know what to look for...? Don't know if I just need to click or to look for something that is from Netgear or Lexmark. I am using a netgear ps121 thing to connect my printer to the Netgear router

    The ps121 is a Netgear print server that I have directly hooked up to the Netgear Router. It's not wireless, but it hooks directly up to the Router and has worked no prob in the past. Is it possible I need to reinstall the Server driver? Does a print server have a driver? I'm not sure?

  • sirkurn Apr 17, 2008

    OK you reminded me that I probably needed a driver so I went to my files and I had saved the driver installer(instead of just installing it) and I reinstalled it and it is printing again!!! Thanx a bunch for jogging my memory. This website is pretty cool!! I will be using it again in the future!!! But 1st I have to find out where to find " problem thread on your profile page, under "My Problems". is at this website. Culdn't seem to find it despite being signed in....BUT thanx again!!

Im not sure why this problem is occurring but if i was you i would just leave the printer and router on at all times so that there is no confusion. Or possibly change it from a static ip to a dynamic one and see how that goes.

Netgear WGR814v2 does not see my ASUS 1005HA-P netbook, but the netbook sees the the Netgear wireless network but cannot connect .


To connect into your own Netgear router, you need to configure the wireless card with your router's wireless configuration settings, eg.the SSID and encryption settings. Check your router manual on how to configure the router or go to the Netgear WEB site to download this info.
To configure the Netgear router for wireless you need to connect a LAN cable from the laptop to the router and run your browser with the configuration IP address. for Netgear type the URL address ;-
http://192.168.0.1
the login = admin PW = password
Then configure the SSID and encryption, record this info so you can configure the wireless card with the same settings.

You can also connect to the Internet by using a LAN cable and plug it into the Netgear router without a wireless connection.

Sierra Wireless AirCard 595U And PS3


I understand that you want to connect the PS3 using the Wireless card and NETGEAR card. Please note that the setup you have will not work for internet access. You can not configure the Air card to work with NETGEAR router. you need to have wih a broadband connection available for this router to connect to internet.

Once you have the router configured with Internet access then you may either connect the PS3 wired or wireless to the router, like you connect a desktop or laptop to the router.

Problems connecting my laptop to wireless router


Make sure that you do the setup via cable, not through wireless!
If you change form WPA to WEP, the length of the key changes and you will have to provide this new key if you want to connect wireless to your router.
You can leave your laptop connected via cable and check if your wireless card can connect.
No, you don't have to reinstall everything again. Just plug in the cable, connect to your router (192.168.x.x) and check your wireless setup.
