      Wireless printing not working?

      Dear all,

      My mum has just got sky broadband etc and all working ok.
      She has now bought a wireless Lexmark printer.
      I installed it all and when I clicked print, it took 4 mins before the printer started.
      Now it does nothing with the printer on the laptop just saying "pending" and nothing happens.
      The printer is lit up green saying it is connected to the wireless network ok.
      Any ideas?

      This sounds similar to an install I did for a friend.

      Sky & wireles Lexmark printer

      The printer would work via USB but not wireless even though we had followed the installation disc to "the letter".
      (I think it said to plug in the USB lead at some stage of the installation)

      I posted a request for help at the time, but solved it by:

      Finally installed from the installation disk again but did not connect via USB.
      The printer then worked wirelessly.

      So maybe try a second install on top of the original & it might just sort itself out.

      Good luck,

      Max.

      Re: Wireless printing not working?

      when you say installed it have you set up the printer INTERNET PROTOCOL {TCP/IP} via the lexmark network setup??

      You may also have to adjust your XP/vista firewall settings, I turned mine off for the installation

      process to eliminate any possible problems, and I also changed the encryptions to None Encrypted through my sky router. You can change them back after you've got the printer working

      Not sure what any of the above is.
      I ran the instalation CD and it said it was all installed.
