How to Install a Lexmark Wireless Printer

Lexmark wireless printers don't need to be connected to a computer with a USB cable; you can print from your computer or laptop to the printer over your wireless network. This comes in especially handy if you have several computers or laptops on your network: no more running around the house, moving the printer and trying to locate the USB, just hit "Print" on your computer program and send the file to the printer over the wireless network.

Step

Place the CD that came with the printer into your computer's CD drive.

Step

Wait for the welcome screen to appear. If the screen doesn't appear after a minute, click on the "Microsoft" button in Windows 7 or Vista and type "D:\setup.exe" into the Start Search box. In Windows XP, click "Start" and then click "Run." Type "D:\setup.exe." If your disk drive has a different letter, change the "D" in "D:\setup.exe" to the letter of your disk drive.

Step

Follow the instructions on the Welcome screen to set up the printer. You'll need to enter the name of your SSID and WEP key or passphrase during this process.

Step

Ensure that the green light is showing on your printer before attempting to print. Green indicates your printer is connected to a wireless network.
