    When I try to print wirelessly from either computer I get Cannot communicate with the printer. I have restarted all equipment and I still get the same message. the WIFI indicator on the fron of the printer lashes orange and not green.

    mine worked when i got it and up to a week ago worked fine, now for some reason i went to print last week it said " can not communicate with printer" I couldn't Scan to the computer it told me "no configured computer on this network", The IP address for the Printer is nothing but 4 zeros, the SSID name for the printer doesn't match my Router SSID name (like all the help topics say it should), My printer is the same distance away from my router as it's always been only difference is its in the next room BUT it worked when i first moved here being in a different room. I've reset the settings several times, I've uninstalled and reinstalled, I put in the network key it does it's search i then get " connection failed" I'm running windows Vista Same as I have been since i got the printer several months ago I've tried the help section on Lexmark's webpage and the Live Chat, They have me running in circles doing things I've done a million times!

    IF i can't get this working again like it was wirelessly Then I'm never buying another Lexmark Product again I always have trouble with them a few months into owning them and Lexmark doesn't want to correct the problem

Hello, im trying to install my wirless printer to my wireless computer and im having some difficulties. for example its asking me to check my wireless LAN access point.. I dont know waht that is? im...

The Canon is trying to connect to a wireless router or wireless access point which is connected to your computer network. Your Sprint 3g device is a wireless broadband device for Internet connection and cannot connect to the Canon using this device.
You need a wireless card that connects to the wireless router or wireless access point.
Otherwise you can connect to your printer using a printer cable.

How do i set it up on my wirless network?

How to set up the printer on wireless? This printer does not support wireless, but you can set up your laptop or computer wirelessly. Simply connect to your wireless network, then(IN VISTA) go to Connect to a Network and click the "add a printer button". The best thing is to buy a printer from a different company though, because with this printer, when the toner life ends, you cannot print anymore(even though there is a lot of toner left in the cartridge!)

Im trying to connect my printer to my desktop,but dont know how


Most of these printers come with a USB cable. You would plug that in to your computer.

Then you take the cd that came with it and install that.

Now if your going wirless your going to need a wirless router and a wireless computer but you still install the cd.

i hope this helps as it was FREE. Please do leave psotive feedback and ratings for your free answer today!

Set up wireless connection canon mp620

Not sure with Cannon but i have set up wireless connections You need to install software on the computer and if there is a option for wirless tick that one This needs to be done while to computer and the printer are connected with a USB Lead Once this is done and you can print with the USB lead (The USB lead needs to establish printer and settings) you can shift the computer reboot and try wireless Thats what I have done with most of the printers i have set up Some have wireless on the LCD screen on the printer under settings

Wirless Printer won"t network with the router

Check your wireless security settings and make sure the mac address of your printer is allowed to connect to the router. In addition, I would set my printer to only allow incoming connections from the router or you will have people driving by, printing ads that you probably will not like.
