Question about Lexmark Wireless X4850 All-In-One Inkjet Printer

1 Answer

Fax issues I have USRobotics wireless router, that is used for printing and laptop. My desktop is a hp pavilliona810n,which the router is connected to. The lexmark is working great, but I need to set up the fax. The desktop has no phone modem,nor is there a slot for one.Can't the router be used as the connection? The whole point of purchasing an "all in one" was to eliminate the old fax machine! Please help! Thanks in advance, Jim

Thanks for the response! I managed to do this myself,I was not aware that your PC must have a "phone modem" card! Once I installed one I already had on hand, it went flawlessly! Windows XP likes this printer!!! Nice "all in one" printer,for sure. I used the Lexmark to replace our Epson scanner and seperate printer, AND our clunky old fax mach. Thanks for such a helpful website. Regards, Jim

How to connect hp pavilion to brother mfc9560cdw without router


This model Bother printer has a 10baseT LAN connection and can be connected to your LAN network and to your HP laptop via the wireless router. Connect a LAN cable from the printer to the wireless router.
To print from your HP laptop, check the IP address range your wireless router issues to your wireless network, it maybe 192.168.1.*** then configure the brother printer with a fixed IP address with the same IP address range but higher address eg. 192.168.1.10 so it does not clash with any other IP addresses.
Next install the Brother printer driver normally.
Then configure the Brother printer Properties.
Click Start - Printers and faxes - right click on the Brother printer - click Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - Standard TCP/IP port -
Port Name eg. 192.168.1.10
Printer name eg Brother
Click OK
Then do a TEST print if it does not work then the IP address is probably incorrect.

This is one of the common connectivity issues marring the benefits of having a wireless printer. In this situation your printer will not print when connected wirelessly but would need you to set it up with your system using a USB cable. Try resetting the IP of your system to what is mentioned in the printer and in case there is a router connecting your printer and system then use the IP address of router and put it in your system. This should help you fix this printer issue.

HP photosmart used to print wirelessly from my Vista loaded laptops. printer was usb connected to desktop with XP. Had to get new hd and reload with XP for desktop and now cannot configure for wireless...


As your printer is not wireless itself I assume you shared the printer. To enable this again goto Control Panel on your desktop, select printers, right click your printer and there should be an option for sharing. Enable sharing.
Now using your Vista laptops you should connect to your home network (in your case this is probably a wireless router, as long as your desktop is connected to this router too), goto Control Panel, printers, add printer, search for printer not connected to this copmputer (or network printer).
Hopefully the Vista laptops will then pick it up and install it correctly. You may be asked to install the correct driver for the vista machines. Windows should provide you with instructions on how to do this.
Hope this helps,www.PuterCare.com

Need my laptop to communicate wireless to printer


If the printer does not have a built-in network card/print server then there is a couple of ways to do this.
If you have a desktop computer connected to the wireless router with a LAN cable, then connect the printer to the desktop computer and make this printer a shared printer on your network. This means that the desktop computer and printer needs to be on when you want to print from the laptop.
The other way is to purchase a print server, connect the printer to the print server and connect the print server with a LAN cable to the Wireless router.
If you don't have sufficient network ports on the wireless router then you need to purchase a hub. Then connect the hub and wireless router with a LAN cable and then the print server to the hub and other computers to the hub.
Setting up the wireless printing will depend upon which method you want to adopt and I can advise you when further when you are ready.

How can I connect my wireless laptop to print wirelessly?


run the wireless setup wizard on the printer from the front panel menus of the printer...this would assign an IP address to the printer from the router...then use the s/w cd that came along with the printer and get the drivers and s/w installed on your computer....if you want a wireless connection it would give you approprite options

LexmarLk X4850 fax wireless set-up


Printing: since Lexmark say you can either connect wirelessly or wired and not both, you must either connect your daughter's machine to the hub by wire or yourself to the printer wirelessly.

Fax: this will need a phone line.

Wireless router


hmmm..that's a bit different print servers usually only handle the print driver..check with your router folks to see if that's not the case. HP only sends what is available. The router is in charge of what gets through.
