Question about Lexmark Z1420 Printer
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
