Question about Lexmark Office Equipment & Supplies
Lexmark Platinum Pro905 ????
Your Specification Sheet which under STANDARD BOX CONTENTS tells what was shipped with your printer. You should have received a USB cable which you can use to connect your printer to your PC.
If you want to connect to the printer through a wired network (usally via a router) then you will need to purchase a network cable, or rather a Cat. 5e cable of the appropriate length with RJ45 male connectors on both ends. This would be plugged in to the Ethernet port on the back of your computer. The reason for doing this is if you have several computers accessing your network printer they can do this directly without relying on the computer with the printer connection being turned on.
If you do not have a wired network or several computers accessing the printer you do not need to connect a network cable. Windows should detect your printer when you plug in the USB cable; it should not be necessary to work through the Add a printer function.
You don't have to choose 'wired'. You do have the option of setting up a wireless connection to your printer through a wireless network. Your printer has a built in wireless printer server and you can set up your printer to connect to your network without running a network cable.
Suggest you refer to page 101 of the User Guide for details on setting up the wireless network.
Trust this is helpful.
