Wireless printer gets ip address different from my routers ip add

My lexmark x4650 keeps acquiring an ip address different from my linksys routers address, so the wireless function won't work. it works with the usb cord, but that's not why I bought the printer. I've reset my router and the network settings on the printer, but it still keeps acquiring a different IP. Any suggestions?

Is the wireless network on you router secured? a 169.254.x.x ip is an invalid ip meaning, it's not connected wirelessly to the router yet.

Check on the wireless network the printer is connecting to. Make sure it is your router.

Need to reconfigure Linksys Wireless Router


There are a few steps that we can try. If you want to email me at [email protected] for further instruction then that's fine. Try the following first:

I will assume you have Windows XP:

1. Click Start button.
2. Click Run.
3. Type in cmd and then hit enter.
4. Type in ipconfig /flushdns and hit enter.
5. Type in ipconfig and hit enter. This should show you a few IP addresses.
6. If you are connecting to the router okay, you should see a gateway address listed. Write that down. Keep the command window open for now.
7. Go to your desktop and open a browser window. Type in the gateway IP address. This should bring up a sign on to the Linksys. If it doesn't, then there's an issue between your PC and the router.
8. Assuming it does bring up the Linksys then sign on to it. Look for an area that will show you devices connected to the router. Do you see the printer? It may show you a MAC address for the computer and the printer with IP address beside it. It may be located under the wireless area.
9. If it does show printer info then write down the IP address. If it doesn't show info then it's possible that the printer isn't configured properly.
10. Log out of the router window.
11. Bring up the command prompt again and try pinging the IP address of the printer (if you have it from the router). If it replies then you should reboot your computer and try printing again. If it doesn't reply then chances are the printer itself isn't installed on the right port.
12. You can check port connection on the printer by going to your printer folder, look at the properties and see what port it's using....for example: if you had it using USB prior to wireless then you want to change it to use the IP address.

There are a few more steps to try but it depends on what happens to this point. Another thing to check is on the printer device itself - go into the network setup which should be under the settings menu somewhere...sorry not sure of the Lexmark model you have. Make sure that the IP address info is listing properly. You can try printing a config page directly from the device as well to show you what IP its using....

Let me know if there's anything further required. If you email me directly then I can continue to help, otherwise someone else may grab this issue to assist further.

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 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 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 .. (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 ..

How can I connect wireless G print server to a 65bits windows vista without a problem, it just works for WIN XP

Hi, it appears that many are having problems with the WPS54G Print Server. I too have always found it hard to get pc to connect to it. My latest problem was with a Win 7, 64bit pc.

Setting up a printer with a print server is a two part configuration. First you need to configure the print server and then add a printer in your OS.

The following instructions are for a linksys wireless router and the linksys wirless print server model # WPS54G.

To set up the print server correctly go to this link.....

Following is the instructions from the above link:
Title: Connecting the PrintServer Wirelessly to a Wireless Router Article ID: 4142 Before configuring the wireless settings of the PrintServer, make sure to know the following settings on your linksys router: SSID, and wireless security. To check the wireless settings on the linksys router, click here.
Configuring the Wireless Settings on the PrintServer
The wireless settings of the PrintServer can be configured using its web-based utility. Make sure the PrintServer is set to a static IP on the network.

Record the Print Servers IP address you will need it later.

NOTE: Make sure the PrintServer is already working when hardwired to the linksys router before attempting to use it wirelessly on your network.
Step 1:
Access the PrintServer’s web-based setup page. Open a web-browser such as Internet Explorer.
NOTE: If you're using Mac, use Safari to access the PrintServer's web-based setup page.
Step 2:
Go to the address bar and enter the IP address you've assigned to the PrintServer.
NOTE: To assign the PrintServer a static IP address, click here.
Step 3:
When the PrintServer setup page appears, click Wireless.
Step 4:
Enter the same SSID you have on the linksys router. Make sure the Network Type is set to Infrastructure then click Save to apply your changes.
Step 5:
Click Security and look under the Security Mode field. Select the type of wireless security your router is currently using then enter the corresponding security keys.
Step 6:
Click Save to apply the settings then close the PrintServer setup page.
Step 7:
Unplug the Ethernet cable connecting the PrintServer to the linksys router. Power it off for 30 seconds then power it on.
Step 8:
Make sure the Wireless LED on the PrintServer is lit and the Ethernet LED is off to indicate that the PrintServer is in wireless mode then try to print wirelessly.

Stop if you can print at this point. If not continue. The following instructions are for Windows 7, 64 bit OS.

Once the above steps are completed open windows file explore. Click Network and you should see a "print server" listed. Click on PRINT SERVER and you will see a network icon labeled p1.

You should now be able to add a printer.

In win 7 open the add printer and click "Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer", and click next. A searching for printer window pops up. It will list any network printers or print servers it see's on your network. You should see a listing titled "p1 on Print Server".

At this point you need to click "The printer that I want isn't listed. This is just below the "Select a printer" box.

Next a "Find a printer by nane or TCP/IP address" window opens. Select "Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or hostname. Click next.

Another window pops up which ask for a printer host name or IP address. Enter the IP address of your print server (the one you recorded when setting up your print server), and click next.

The next windows states the device is of unknown type. Under Device Type, make sure Standard is checked. Out to the right is a down arrow, click it and you should see many different devices displayed. Scroll until you find "Hewlet Packard Jet Direct", click on it to select it and click next.

Finally a "Install the printer Driver" window should open. Select your printer and follwing the instructions. If your printer is not listed you can click "Window Update" which will look for new printer divers. Once the printer driver is installed you should be able to print.

As you can see this in not a simple printer install. Good luck!
