Printer says it offline


It probably changed its IP address. Try uninstalling its driver and re installing it. Some smart drivers automatically detects their printers once connected on a router.
Also check connection from device manager .....

SETTING UP A WIRELESS PRINTER WITHOUT A WIRELESS ROUTER - WINDOWS 7
Install Virtual Router first "Turn any Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2 Computer into a Wifi Hot Spot."
EditByBSEditor: Virtual Router turns any Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2 Computer into a Wifi Hot SPOT using Windows 7's Wireless Hosted Network (Virtual Wifi) technology.
The Wireless Network Create/shared with Virtual Router uses WPA2 Encryption, and there is not way to turn off that encryption. This is actually a feature of the Wireless Hosted Network API's built into Windows 7 and 2008 R2 to ensure the best security possible.
You can give your "virtual" wireless network any name you want, and also set the password to anything. Just make sure the password is at least 8 characters. http://www.brothersoft.com/virtual-router-327895.html Then install Connectify-Me Connectify is an easy to use software router for Windows 7 computers. After downloading and installing the lightweight application, Connectify utilizes your computers' built in Wi-Fi card to wirelessly share any available Internet connection: a cable modem, a cellular card, or even another Wi-Fi network. Other Wi-Fi enabled devices including laptops, smart phones, music players, and gaming systems can see and join your Connectify hotspot just like any other Wi-Fi access point and are kept safe and secure by password-protected WPA2 Encryption. http://www.connectify.me/ Then reboot computer

I have a green Wi-Fi indication of the from of the printer, but it won't print. it says... Lexmark 3600-4600 series 3A82A0_P1


Try to unplug then replug the printer into the power source to reset it. This usually fixes minor communication issues. If problem continues, try to print the wireless network settings to check if your printer is still connected to the same network as your computer(s). Follow the steps in this article: How to Print the Network Settings Page on X4600 Series All-In-Ones (AIOs). If not in the same network, you may need to reset the printer. Follow the steps on how to reset the printer wireless network settings: How to Restore the Network Settings on the X4650 AIO to the Original Factory Defaults. To reconfigure printer back to your wireless network, refer to this article: How to Install the X4600 Series on Wi-Fi Network - Infrastructure Mode.

Printer is not responding to wifi network. everything has been checked but i may have missed something


To set up a wireless printer in your system, your computer needs Wi-Fi hardware and the Wi-Fi connectivity enabled. If you face any issues with the Wi-Fi hardware or your Wi-Fi driver, you will have issues in setting up your Wireless printer. You need to make sure of the compatibility of your driver with your Operating System. An incompatible or a corrupted driver will also create issues in running the set-up.

I can't get it to work! Wi-Fi light will never turn on! I have tried everything, I'm running Windows 7 64 bits, I tried many times reinstalling, nothing works! Please help!


You should try resetting the internal network adapter of your Lexmark Z1480 printer. Please refer to this article from the Lexmark website - How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings. The WiFi light on the printer should turn orange after doing the steps. Try to configure the wireless setup on your computer again.
Also, make sure to use the correct printer driver for your Windows 7 64-bit. If you're not sure, unplug the printer from your computer and uninstall any existing Lexmark Z1400 software before installing the new driver. Go to Start menu -> Programs -> Lexmark Z1400 Series -> Tools -> Uninstall. Reboot when prompted.
To reinstall the software, download the printer driver using this link Lexmark Z1400 driver for Windows 7 64-bit. Execute the file and follow the instructions on the software.
I hope this information has been helpful. Thanks.

I can't get it to print wirelessly with my airport express. What do I do? Does Canon Smartbase mp360 not print wirelessly?


You have to setup this printer as a Network printer, the PC using it, must Browse for the PC on the network. Setting up a wireless printer is not a complicated matter to accomplish. It can take as short as five steps to get the whole thing done.
Step #1: The Location of the Wireless Printer.
Since more than one computer would be making use of the wireless printer. It makes sense to figure out the best place to put it. The wireless printer should be set up at a place at home or in the office that is accessible to everyone and where there is ample space for paper, printer ink and other such paraphernalia.
Step #2: Bluetooth or Wi-Fi?
There are two connectivity choices when it comes to setting up a wireless printer, and these two choices are none other than Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Most new computers and printers nowadays are equipped with either Bluetooth or Wi-Fi capacities, but if not, it is easy to get a wireless card that can be plugged using a USB port. The only difference is that Bluetooth printers has a smaller range than Wi-Fi.
Step #3: Enable Printer Sharing
The server computer’s operating system must be informed that the printer that will be added to its network is a wireless printer. In Windows Vista, this is done by accessing the network settings in the Control Panel and then activating file and printer sharing in the local area network settings.
Step #4: Share the Printer.
The other computers on the network must also be set up for using the wireless printer. To do this in Windows Vista, open the Control Panel in the classic view and then open Printers. Right click on the printer that is going to be shared, and then open Properties. In Properties, check the box that allows the printer to be a shared device.
Step #5: Continuous Troubleshooting
Wireless networks are prone to interruptions, and so it is important for whoever it is that is maintaining the wireless network at home or at the office to keep the connections to the wireless printer active. Nothing is more irritating that setting up a wireless printer and then encountering numerous glitches afterwards.
