Normally you'd have a disc that came with the printer. It not only has a driver on it, which you may or may not need, but... it also will have a program for the computer to configure the printer for you.

You will probably find that the first time you need to connect to the printer with a cable FIRST to do the actual setup. That sets up the connection, printer wireless name, etc, and adds the printer to your list.

Then once that's all done and you disconnect the cable and reboot everything, once the printer comes on it looks for the router/hub, then you generally have a green light there indicating it's connected. Then you can print or do a test page from the computer.

If you don't have that disc, you should be able to download it from the manufacturer's website in Support and/or Downloads.

Good Luck!

You can try updating / reinstalling your Wireless driver. Might help - might be a waste of time. If you have already done, this doing it again and again won't help --Please call me to discuss more +1888-655-2655.

Try a new USB cable. Scanners require bidirectional communication with the computer and thus can fail when printer itself works. (If you use a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection.) Also try changing USB ports.

Another thing to try is to remove the TWAIN driver and reinstall it. This requires the original software CD from Kodak.
1. From your computer desktop, click Start > Run. (In Windows 7, type run in the search box then click on Run.)
2. Type %windir%, then click OK.
3. Double-click twain_32.
4. Right-click Kodak, then select Delete.
5. Insert the KODAK All-in-One Printer Software CD into the appropriate drive, then go to D: > printer > scanner.
NOTE: The CD is indicated by D: above. The CD drive may be a different letter on your computer.
6. Double-click aioscannr.msi, then follow the instructions to remove it.
7. Go to D: > printer > scanner, then double-click aioscannr.msi, and follow the instructions to install the file.
8. Open Home Center Software:
a. Select Scan Documents and Pictures.
b. Scan a document.

Unfortunately, if the error persists, the scanner may need service. Contact Kodak: .

I hope this helps.

I think you may find that, as in my HP Printer, the Wireless through my laptop has to talk to my Broadband Router which in turn talks wirelessly to my printer.
You are right, wireless and WI FI are slightly different standards.

The ACTIONTEC GT124, M1000 and PK5000 Routers are not compatible with wireless-enabled all-in-one printers. These routers cannot connect to your all-in-one printer because they do not support the multicast protocol. Contact your router supplier for additional assistance and to determine if your router will be able to support the muticast protocol in the future.

Won't come up on printer list

make sure that your printer is being recognized by your computer. to ensure that go to device manager
click on start and then run(XP) for vista click on start>programs>accessories>run then type devmgmt.msc
the device manager will come up
look for other devices you might have unknown device or eastman kodak company if not then go to universal serial bus controllers. for troubleshooting sake, unplug all devices except from your mouse and keyboard look for usb composite device or usb printing support. if you have a wireless mouse or keyboard u might see 2 usb composite device. uninstall the composite device, unplug the printer and plug it back in. then let the computer recognize it. let me know what happened! good luck!
