Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Despite being connected as the default printer, my Lexmark X4580 will not print anything, either wirelessly or via USB connection. Is there any reason for this? The only issue was when it had to be unplugged due to freezing with a message showing something to do with "Flash failed". It restarted okay, but has refused to print since. Help?

Make sure that the printer in question is selected in the dialog that pops up for confirmation before printing.

How can i set up the printer to this computer?


depending on it's age, it could be a Parallel, a Serial, or a USB printer....

You will also need the drivers for it...Note: it is sometimes known as a Zebra printer. HOW you connect it to your PC depends on the connection. WHEN you install the drivers also depends on what connection type it is (USB: do not connect printer until the driver software tells you to, the others are OK to connect first...but NOT while the PC is ON....especially for a serial printer.)

UPS used to use those (they may still,) and might have drivers you can use....they wern't for USB when I used them, but they may have now...

This printer can print wirelessly across a network, and/or across a USB cable to one printer. The printer is set up for wireless use by connecting it to a computer with USB, and after it is set up you SHOULD be able to access it across your wireless router. If you look at items on the router, you will see this printer there too, with its own IP address. When you set the printer up in Windows, set it up as though it is a network printer. Looking under Ports, making sure that the correct item is checkmarked.

Wireless Connectivity lost


Greetings Roxie
Are you using XP or Vista?

The default ip address for a Netgear 192.168.0.1 - the default user is 'admin' and the default password is 'password'. Is it possible for you to run an ethernet cable from your PC to the router or from your laptop to the router so we can address its configuration?

Once you have connected the cable, wait about 30 seconds and then open Internet Explorer. In the address bar type 192.168.0.1

At this point the login to the router should come up. If it doesn't report back and let me know. If it does - log in using the default info I listed above. Verify that your connection type is DHCP. From there go to the wireless settings page. Make sure that wireless is enabled and make note of the name (SSID) of your network. Also take note of what channel you are broadcasting on. By default it is probably 6 but you should probably change it to 11. You can also enable or disable the security encryption from this page but lets disable encryption if it is not already disabled.

Once you have verified these items are present and enabled, save the routers configuration. Disconnect your laptop from the router. Unplug the power to the router. Unplug the power to the modem. Make sure all of the lights on the modem go out. Stand tall and sing our national anthem (wait about a minute) and then plug the modem back in. Once the online light has gone solid green plug the power back into the router.

Now go to your laptop and observe the little computer icon in the lower right by the clock. Does it indicate that there are networks available? If so - double click on it to see the available networks. Make sure you are connecting to YOUR network (the SSID we took note of earlier). If it says connected - you should be OK. If it says anything else let me know what it is. Good luck!

D-link router DI524 using next G external wireless modem


You can purchase a usb wireless dongle and attach to the PC. From then onwards you can set up a wireless network without connecting the usb cable for the router. The dongle will enable wireless capabilities on the pc. The only thing left is to have all devices running in the same workgroup.
