How to connect to a laptop


Lexmark is one of the most popular printer manufacturers, and the installation process is fairly straightforward no matter what computer brand you have. Lexmark, however, doesn't always include all of the equipment required to hook up the printer. If you want to hook up your Lexmark printer to your Gateway laptop, you will probably need to purchase a printer USB cable.

1.Plug your Lexmark printer into the power outlet.
2.Turn on your laptop, or make sure all software programs are closed if your computer is already on.
3.Insert your installation disk into your Gateway laptop's CD or DVD drive. Wait for the "Welcome" screen to appear. If it doesn't appear after a minute, launch the installation CD manually by going to your start menu and clicking on "Run." In the "Run" field, type: D:\setup.exe
4.Press the "Install" button on your "Welcome" screen to go on to the "Introduction" screen.
5.Press "Continue" on the "Introduction screen" and press "Continue" again on the "Read Me" screen. Agree to the license agreement and follow any additional installation prompts.
6.Connect the Lexmark printer to your Gateway laptop when prompted. Plug the USB cable to the back of the Lexmark printer in the "Quick Connect Laptop Port." Then plug the other end of the USB to your Gateway laptop.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

How do i change the language bak to English? And how do i print from my macbook laptop onto the printer


TO CHANGE THE LANGUAGE:

From the printer control panel, press the 'Spanner' icon.

Press the right arrow button, and then press OK

Press OK again.

Press the arrow buttons until the language that you want appears on the display, and then press OK.
If you are sure, press the right arrow button, and then press OK to change the language.
To print from your macbook laptop you may have to install additional software onto your laptop from the installation CD. Insert the CD and wait for the 'Welcome' screen to appear. (Note if the 'Welcome' screen does not appear after a minute, then click the CD icon on the desktop). Double click 'Install' and follow the screen instructions.

Some additional notes that may apply to your machine(s):

If the printer is connected to a desktop computer through the rear USB port and you decide to connect a laptop computer to the printer through the Quick Connect laptop port, then the Quick Connect laptop port connection overrides the rear USB port connection. The active print jobs on the desktop computer may be cancelled. Pause or cancel active jobs on the desktop computer before switching between ports.

To summerise:

Pause or cancel active jobs on the desktop computer.

Connect a USB cable to the laptop computer and then to the Quick Connect laptop port on the front of the printer.

Warning-Potential Damage: Do not plug in or remove the USB cable from the Quick Connect laptop port while a memory device is being accessed by the printer.

If you have not yet installed the printer software on your laptop then install it now.

Hope this helps

Try to connect with laptop


Hi,
Make sure that your laptop have the printer software/driver installed in it, Printer needs driver that allows it to communicate with your computer/Laptop. Sometimes drivers need to be updated.

But before installing driver you need to uninstall previous version installed in your laptop then after restarting laptop you can re-install new driver. Visit this link to install driver for Lexmark X2670. Go to download & start downloading.

Thanks...!!

DSL line problems required us to reset the wireless router in the process the Lemarck x4650 no longer connects to laptop. Fix?


get t the wireless card of the printer ..and reconnect it in the actual conditions of the router ..just open the card ..and scan for network ..when you find it ..connect ...and insert the network password if it has the security activated..Practically connect the printer again like you connect a wireless laptop ..
If the connection is made to one of the ports of the router ..by cable ..than open the lan card in the printer and insert the values corespondent to the position in the port .. or put it to automatically (obtain an IP address automatically ) if the router supports it ..and it is not necesarry to insert the addresses a manually ....if it is ..get to the other option ..use the following Ip address ..and insert the values like in the computer that connects in the near by port ..only at the IP address insert the last digit with one unit more than the port near it ..like thi s..
if the printer is in the 4th port ..and the computer near it in 3rd has the Ip address 192.168.1 4..the printer will became ..192.168.1.5 (they are always with one digit more..cause the router is 1..the rest since the port one are from 2...3..and so on ..

Directly connected to laptop, wont print!


Just insert the CD and DO an Add A Device which will be there in the menu

Follow the instructions
Select the option of installing through the network and it will be done

Take a Network configuration Page and get the IP of the Printer

It would be like -169.254.xxx.xxx

Open the internet brower
put in the IP address of the printer in the browser
if the printer page opens its okay or else check your connection
check your firewall settings

you can also check the ports tap in the printer icon properties in the control panel and check whether TCP/IP port is selected or not
if yes check the IP assinged to that port
