You can get the driver directly from the manufacturer, go to lexmark.com look under drivers.
1- did it install the printer anyway?
2- check the printer manual there may be a switch for wireless/usb depending on the method you want to use, on the printer itself.

Check if your printer is still connected to the same network as your computer. Refer to this article: How to Print the Network Settings Page on X4600 Series All-In-Ones (AIOs). If you the printout, check the SSID and other network information. If printer still belongs to your network, then it could be a firewall issue. Make sure to allow all Lexmark and printer communications in the program rules/permissions for your firewall. If printer doesn't belong the same network as your computer, then you need to reset the printer's wireless network adapter and re-launch the Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility.

Can't get the printer to connect to my laptop. Blinking red light only. New HP G61 Windows 7. Can't find device.


Hello. You will need to reset the X6570 printer first. Use the printer control panel to reset, press Settings > choose Settings > Network Setup > Wireless Setup > Reset Wireless Adapter to Factory Defaults > choose Yes. Wifi light should turn off and will light up solid red/orange eventually. Now, you need to uninstall the existing driver from your computer by going to Start Menu > Programs > Lexmark Series folder > Tools > Uninstall. Restart your computer. Check if your computer is running on 32-bit or 64-bit by going to Start Menu > right click on Computer > Properties. Download the driver compatible for Windows 7 from the Lexmark website by clicking on this link: http://bit.ly/9iZgtC . On the website, click on the Microsoft dropdown found below the page. Choose the operating system of your computer. Download and install the software. Hope this helps.

I need to re-set my lexmark 1400 wireless printer to a new modem recently purchased, I don't have any instructions. My son set it up originally and I'm totally computer illiterate !!


You need to use the setup cd to install the printer again, it automatically sets up the wireless with you, during the setup. but Il look into it more now.

Installation of a downloaded driver for Lexmark X1290 All-In_One


Hi,

You need to download the Vista compatible setup here from Lexmark,

http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:567:0:0&searchLang=en&os_group=Windows%20Vista&target=

Run the setup after it finishes downloading but ONLY connect the printer to the computer when the setup instructs you to do so.
