Question about Lexmark Z1420 Printer

Cannot connect wireless

Prints OK when connected via cable but will not get past the page that tells you to connect wirelessly. Have checked all ports are correct and that the printer is set to 'shared'. Running out of ideas now....can anyone help?

I'm encountering a similar problem. The printer works fine USB connected, and even wirelessly at my home (over a "network" using my wireless router). I recently got a new multifunction printer, so I moved the Lexmark to my office. However, in the office I don't connect to a network (no router, wired connection for Internet).
I've physically disconnected from the internet, set up an ad-hoc network on my laptop that the printer sees when it scans for networks, but it cannot connect to it. Without the ad-hoc network the printer sees my laptop, but again cannot connect to it directly over wireless (after a minute of trying, "Connection Failed"). My laptop cannot detect the printer wirelessly (using Vista Ultimate, 32-bit hardware) using printer wizard or anything else i can think of.
I know this is probably way off, but I keep getting the impression the problem is that there's no "network" to speak of -- just the laptop and the printer. If that is actually the booddoggle with all this I may go firebomb Lexmark, but the idea is so silly to me that I must be missing something obvious.
Any help would be fantastic and deeply appreciated. I don't often get to use the Interwebs for anything but work lately, so I don't know how soon I will get back to this site (just found it tonite) to look at responses, so if anybody is willing to e-mail suggestions to a3a3a3a321@yahoo.com I can get back much more rapidly.
Again thanks in advance, because this is really starting to hurt.

I'm not sure how you have it set up right now, but if you have the printer set to "shared", then you can connect to the computer that's connected to it from another wireless device and double-click on the printer. It will let you install the driver for it and add it to your Printers list as an available printer. Then when you print you just select that printer and Windows should take care of it. If you have already tried this please post back with some more information as to the process you have followed and where it errored out.

The CD is not available for installation is it necessary? I have all of the cable if the Yellow cable connects to the cable router what does the white cable on the wireless router connect to. Thank...


If the cables supplied have RJ45 connectors then they are used for connecting and configuring the wireless settings in Netgear router and to connect the Netgear to the DSL modem foe Internet access.
Most likely the color of the cables is not important.
To configure the wireless settings, connect a cable from one of the LAN ports (not the WAN/Internet port) to the LAN port on your computer. You may remove this cable after configuring the wireless settings if you want to connect to the Netgear by wireless only. You need to connect other computers to the Netgear's LAN port with a cable if they do not have wireless cards installed in these computers.

The other LAN cable is used to connect the Netgear WAN/Internet port to the DSL modem so you computers can connect to the Internet via the Netgear router.

Follow these instructions to configure the Netgear router.

If you connect the computer to the router , it works.
That means the wired connection is OK.
Open the set up page of the router check the wireless settings of the router.
I think your network is secured and you are not typing the correct network key.
just open the router set up and check the wireless settings .

Connect D-Link DWL-G700AP to dreambox decoder


you can connect to your box via FTP via a crossover cable. If you can’t, you might want to read up on that before attempting this.
Now, what we’ll need is…
Ethernet cable (crossover or patch)
Router
Modem
We’ll also assume that you have a router (wireless or not) and that your modem is connected to the ‘Internet’ or ‘WAN’ port.
If you have a free port on your wireless router, you can connect your dreambox to this. Use the ethernet cable (crossover or patch, most modern routers will accept either) connect one end to your dreambox and one end to a free port on your router. You don’t need to change any settings on your router or PC.
Over to the dreambox. Navigate to the networking page on your dreambox.
Setup -> Expert Setup -> Communication Setup

Can't connect to 2WIRE


I had a similar issue. Here's what I did; Directly connect to the router via ethernet cable; I went to Start>Programs>Accessories>Run; then type in ipconfig, look at the number for the default gateway and type it into your browser's address bar (mine was 192.168.1.254). Now that your in the router, click on the Home Network or View Home Network. At some point it might prompt you for a password. Click Wireless Settings near the top of the screen. From this page I changed the channel to 6 (not quite sure if it did anything) and changed the Power Setting to 10.
After that I was able to connect wirelessly.

Wireless printing does not work


For an effective wireless connection, the printer should be connected to one of the LAN ports of a configured wireless router. This way, every pc(mostly laptops with wireless capability) can print to the printer. You will need a wireless adapter for desktop pcs to access any resource made available wirelessly ok. Good luck

My IMAC ethernet connection to my wrt54G is much slower than wifi


Then you have your settings wrong, as I have the same setup for many years. The setup page of your router should be set basically default, it should be all set to auto ip and other than your dns there should not be anything else to set. I have 3 wireless and two wired devices and all of the computers .And the speed is constant,,something is wrong with your settings, if you can take a screenshot by opening the router homepage and hitting the print screen button on your keyboard, you can then hit paste on here and it will past the entire thing on here to examine
