Question about Lexmark Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a 905 Lexmark printer and I want to use Smart Solutions. I have a H.P. desktop computer. I assume I would choose "wired" when given an option to choose when choosing a Network Connection. It ask me to connect a Network Cable to the back of my printer. What is a Network Cable? I can not see where that came with the printer. What do I need to do? Jack Burbridge

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.

Hi laq,

I'm not sure if it was me who answered your ?, I'll assume not, try it this way once:
Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file - . Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done.
