About your printer
Thank you for choosing this printer!
We've worked hard to make sure it will meet your needs.
To start using your new printer right away, use the setup materials that came with the printer, and then skim the
User’s Guide to learn how to perform basic tasks. To get the most out of your printer, read the User’s Guide carefully,
and make sure you check the latest updates on our Web site.
We're committed to delivering performance and value with our printers, and we want to make sure you're satisfied.
If you do encounter any problems along the way, one of our knowledgeable support representatives will be delighted
to help you get back on track fast. And if you find something we could do better, please let us know. After all, you
are the reason we do what we do, and your suggestions help us do it better.
Minimizing your printer's environmental impact
We are committed to protecting the environment and are continually improving our printers to reduce their
environmental impact. By selecting certain printer settings or tasks, you may be able to reduce your printer's
environmental impact even further.
Conserving energy
• Activate Eco-Mode. This feature sets the screen brightness to low and sets the printer to change to Power Saver
mode after the printer is left idle for 10 minutes.
• Select the lowest Power Saver timeout. The Power Saver feature puts the printer in a minimum-power standby
mode after the printer has been idle for a set amount of time (the Power Saver timeout).
• Share your printer. Wireless/network printers allow you to share a single printer among multiple computers,
thus conserving energy and other resources.
Conserving paper
• Activate Eco-Mode. On selected printer models, this feature sets the printer to automatically print on both sides
of the paper (duplex) for copy and fax jobs, and for printing in Windows and Mac OS X 10.6 or later.
• Print more than one page image on one side of the paper. The “Pages per sheet” feature allows you to print
multiple pages on one sheet. You can print up to 8 page images on one side of a sheet of paper.
• Print on both sides of the paper. Duplexing lets you print on both sides of the paper manually or automatically
(depending on your printer model).
• Preview print jobs before printing. Use the preview features found in Toolbars, the Print or Print Preview dialog,
or the printer display (depending on your printer model).
• Scan and save. To avoid printing multiple copies, you can scan documents or photographs and save them to a
computer program, application, or flash drive for presentation.
• Use recycled paper.
About your printer

Downloaded From ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
Conserving ink
• Use Quick Print or Draft Mode. These modes can be used to print documents using less ink than normal and
are ideal for printing documents that are mostly text.
• Use High Yield cartridges. Inks in High-Yield cartridges allow you to print more pages with fewer cartridges.
• Clean the printhead. Before replacing and recycling your ink cartridges, try using the “Clean Printhead” and
“Deep Clean Printhead” features. These features clean the printhead nozzles to improve the quality of your prints.
Recycling
• Return ink cartridges for reuse or recycling through the Lexmark Cartridge Collection Program. To return
an ink cartridge, go to www.lexmark.com/recycle. Follow the instructions to request a postage-paid bag.
• Recycle the product packaging.
• Recycle your old printer instead of throwing it away.
• Recycle paper from discarded print jobs.
• Use recycled paper.

Printing photos from a PictBridge-enabled digital camera
PictBridge is a technology available in most digital cameras that lets you print directly from your digital camera
without using a computer.
1 Insert one end of the USB cable into the camera.
Note: Use only the USB cable that came with the camera.
2 Insert the other end of the cable into the PictBridge port on the front of the printer.
Notes:
• Make sure that the PictBridge-enabled digital camera is set to the correct USB mode. If the camera USB
selection is incorrect, then the camera is detected as a flash drive, or an error message is displayed on the
printer control panel. For more information, see the camera documentation.
• The printer reads only one memory device at a time.
Warning—Potential Damage: Do not touch any cables, any network adapter,
any connector, the memory device, or the printer in the areas shown while

Printing from a Bluetooth-enabled device
• This printer is compliant with Bluetooth Specification 2.0. It supports the following profiles: Object Push Profile
(OPP) and Serial Port Profile (SPP). Check with your Bluetooth-enabled device manufacturers (cellular phone or
PDA) to determine their hardware compatibility and interoperability. It is recommended that you use the latest
firmware on your Bluetooth-enabled device.
• To print Microsoft documents from your Windows® Mobile/Pocket PC PDA, additional third-party software and
drivers are required. For more information about the required software, see the documentation for your PDA.
Setting up a connection between your printer and a
Bluetooth-enabled device
Note: The printer does not support printing files from your computer using a Bluetooth connection.
You need to set up a connection between a Bluetooth-enabled device and your printer if you are sending a print job
from the Bluetooth device for the first time. You will need to repeat the setup if:
• You reset the printer to its factory default settings.
• You change the Bluetooth security level or the Bluetooth pass key.
• The Bluetooth-enabled device you are using requires users to set up a Bluetooth connection on every print job.
For more information, see the documentation for your Bluetooth device.
• The name of the Bluetooth device you are using is automatically deleted from the Bluetooth device list.
When the Bluetooth security level is set to High, the printer saves a list of up to eight Bluetooth devices that have
previously set up a connection with the printer. When the printer detects more than eight devices, the least
recently used device is removed from the list. You need to repeat the setup of the deleted device to be able to
send a print job to the printer.
Note: You need to set up a connection for each Bluetooth device that you use to send a print job to the printer.
To set up a connection between the printer and a Bluetooth-enabled device:
1 Insert a USB Bluetooth adapter into the USB port located on the front of the printer.

Scanning FAQ
How can I improve the quality of a scan?
• Make sure your original documents are in good condition.
• Make sure the application that receives the scanned document is appropriate. For example, if you are scanning
a photo to edit it, then make sure you choose a photo editing application to receive the scan. If you are scanning
a document to edit the text, then make sure you choose an OCR application.
• Use a high resolution.
How do I scan in black and white?
Color is the default for all scans. To scan in black and white, do the following:
1 From the home screen of the printer control panel, touch Scan.
2 Choose a scan destination.
3 Select the settings for the scan.
4 From the Scan Options screen, touch
.
Why am I being asked for a PIN?
PINs are a security measure used to restrict the scanned information from going into certain locations, or to keep
what is being scanned from being seen or used by others. You may be prompted to enter a PIN if the network
computer you are scanning to requires one.
To learn how PINs get assigned to network computers, see the Help for the printer software associated with your
operating system.

What is an application list, and how do I update it?
When you scan a file, you can choose which application to use to open it on your computer. The printer downloads
this application list from your computer when scanning for the first time. If you do not see the application you want
on the list, or if you install new applications on your computer, then update the application list in the printer.
Updating the application list
1 From the home screen of the printer control panel, navigate to Scan to Computer:
Scan > Scan to Computer
2 Select a local or network computer to receive the scan.
3 From the list of scan applications available on the selected computer, touch REFRESH, and then touch Accept.

ADF
Scanner glass
Use the ADF for multiple-page documents.
Use the scanner glass for single pages, small items (such as
postcards or photos), transparencies, photo paper, or thin
media (such as magazine clippings).
Note: The ADF is available only on selected models. If you
purchased a printer without an ADF, then load original
documents or photos on the scanner glass.
Tips for e-mailing
• When using the ADF, adjust the paper guide on the ADF to the width of the original document.
• When using the scanner glass, close the scanner lid to avoid dark edges on the scanned image.
• Do not load postcards, photos, small items, transparencies, photo paper, or thin media (such as magazine
clippings) into the ADF. Place these items on the scanner glass.
• Make sure to enter your e-mail account information and set up the SMTP server before sending an e-mail.
• Make sure the printer is connected to an Ethernet or wireless network before sending an e-mail.
If necessary, make sure the network is connected to the Internet for the printer to communicate with the SMTP
server. If the printer cannot connect to the Internet, then contact your system support person.
The printer supports only one active network connection (Ethernet or wireless) at a time.
• Add contacts to your address book. When sending an e-mail, you can just select contacts from your address book
instead of typing their e-mail addresses repeatedly.

To connect:

Tips for this setup:
• If you have only one telephone number on your line, then you need to set the printer to receive faxes automatically
(Auto Answer On).
• Set the printer to pick up calls two rings after the answering machine. For example, if the answering machine
picks up calls after four rings, then set the printer to pick up after six rings. This way, the answering machine picks
up calls first and your voice calls are received. If the call is a fax, then the printer detects the fax signal on the line
and takes over the call.
• If you subscribe to a distinctive ring service provided by your telephone company, then make sure that you set
the correct ring pattern for the printer. Otherwise, the printer will not receive faxes even if you have set it to
receive faxes automatically.

Tips for this setup:
• This setup works best if you subscribe to a distinctive ring service. If you have distinctive ring service, then make
sure that you set the correct ring pattern for the printer. Otherwise, the printer will not receive faxes even if you
have set it to receive faxes automatically.
• If you have only one telephone number on your line, then you need to set the printer to receive faxes manually
(Auto Answer Off).
When you answer the telephone and you hear fax tones, press *9* or the manual answer code on the telephone
to receive the fax.
• You can also set the printer to receive faxes automatically (Auto Answer On), but you need to turn off the voice
mail service when you are expecting a fax. This setting works best if you are using voice mail more often than fax.
Scenario 2: Digital Subscriber Line (DSL)
EXT
LINE
A Digital Subscriber Line splits your regular telephone line into two channels: voice and Internet. Telephone and fax
signals travel through the voice channel, and Internet signals pass through the other channel. This way, you can use
the same line for analog voice calls (including faxes) and digital Internet access.
To minimize interference between the two channels and ensure a quality connection, you need to install a DSL filter
for the analog devices (fax machine, telephone, answering machine) in your network. Interference causes noise and
static on the telephone, failed and poor quality faxes for the printer, and slow Internet connection on your computer.
To install a filter for the printer:
1 Connect the line port of the DSL filter to the wall jack.
2 Connect a telephone cable from the
port on the back of the printer to the phone port on the DSL filter.

3 To continue using a computer for Internet access, connect the computer to the DSL HPN port on the DSL filter.
4 To connect a telephone to the printer, remove the protective plug from the
port of the printer and then
connect the telephone to the port.
Scenario 3: VoIP telephone service
To connect:
1 Connect one end of a telephone cable to the
port of the printer.
2 Connect the other end of the cable to the port labeled Phone Line 1 or Phone Port on the VoIP adapter.
The port labeled Phone Line 2 or Fax Port is not always active. You may need to pay extra to your VoIP provider
if you want to activate the second phone port.
3 Remove the protective plug from the
port of the printer, and then connect the telephone to the port.
Tips for this setup:
• To make sure that the phone port on the VoIP adapter is active, plug an analog telephone into the phone port,
and then listen for a dial tone. If you hear a dial tone, then the port is active.
• If you need two phone ports for your devices but do not want to pay extra, then do not plug the printer into the
second phone port. You can use a phone splitter. Plug the phone splitter into the Phone Line 1 or Phone Port,
and then plug the printer and telephone into the splitter.
Make sure you use a phone splitter, not a line splitter. To make sure that you are using the correct splitter, plug
an analog telephone into the splitter and then listen for a dial tone.

To connect:
1 Connect one end of a telephone cable to the
port of the printer.
2 Connect the other end of the cable to the port labeled Phone Line 1 or Phone Port on the cable modem.
The port labeled Phone Line 2 or Fax Port is not always active. You may need to pay extra to your cable provider
if you want to activate the second phone port.
3 Remove the protective plug from the

Tips for this setup:
• To make sure that the phone port on the cable modem is active, plug an analog telephone into the phone port,
and then listen for a dial tone. If you hear a dial tone, then the port is active.
• If you need two phone ports for your devices but do not want to pay extra, then do not plug the printer into the
second phone port. You can use a phone splitter. Plug the phone splitter into the Phone Line 1 or Phone
Port , and then plug the printer and telephone into the splitter.

Different countries have different types of telephone wall jacks. The most common wall jack is the Registered Jack-11

Receiving faxes
Tips for receiving faxes
When receiving faxes:
• Make sure that the printer is on and connected to a working telephone, DSL, or VoIP line. The line is working if
you hear a dial tone.
• If you set the printer to receive faxes manually (Auto Answer Off), then make sure that the ringer volume is not
set to Off.
• If you have set the printer to receive faxes automatically (Auto Answer On), then load paper in the printer.
Receiving faxes automatically
1 Make sure that Auto Answer is on:
a From the home screen, navigate to Auto Answer:
> Fax Setup > Ringing and Answering > Auto Answer
b If Auto Answer is not set to On, touch ON, and then touch Accept.
2 Set the number of rings before the printer picks up incoming faxes:
a Touch Pick Up On.
b Set the number of rings, and then touch Accept to save the setting.
When the number of rings you set is detected, the printer automatically receives the incoming fax.
Warning—Potential Damage: Do not touch the cables or the
and
ports while actively receiving a fax.
Tips:
• If the printer is sharing the line with other analog devices (telephone, answering machine), then set the printer
to pick up calls two rings after the answering machine. For example, if the answering machine picks up calls after
four rings, then set the printer to pick up after six rings. This way, the answering machine picks up calls first and
your voice calls are received. If the call is a fax, then the printer detects the fax signal on the line and takes over
the call. If the printer is on a dedicated fax line, then you may set the printer to pick up on any number of rings.
• If you have multiple numbers on a single line, or if you subscribe to a distinctive ring service provided by your
telephone company, then make sure that you set the correct ring pattern for the printer. Otherwise, the printer
will not receive faxes even if you have set it to receive faxes automatically.

Faxing FAQ
If I skipped the fax setup initially, do I need to run the installer again
to set up the fax?
You do not need to run the installer again. You can set up and configure the fax through the fax software that was
installed with the printer software.
To set up the fax:
1 Connect the printer to the telephone line. For more information, see “Setting up the printer to fax” on page 77.
2 Configure the fax settings using the fax software. To access the fax software:
For Windows users
a Click or Start.
b Click All Programs or Programs, and then select the printer program folder from the list.
c Click Printer Home.
The Printer Home opens.
d Click the Fax tab, and then click Set up the printer to fax.

c Configure the fax settings.
What is a splitter and what type of splitter should I use?
If there are limited wall jacks in your home or limited ports on your adapter, then you can use a phone splitter. A
splitter splits the telephone signal and allows you to connect multiple devices to the wall jack. It has two or more
ports where you can plug the devices. Do not use a line splitter.
To make sure that you are using the correct splitter, plug an analog telephone into the splitter and then listen for a
dial tone.
What is my fax number?
In most cases, your telephone number is also your fax number. If you subscribe to the Distinctive Ring Pattern
Detection (DRPD) service offered by telephone companies, then your fax number is the number that you assigned
to the printer. Make sure that you enter the correct distinctive ring pattern for that number in the fax software or in
the Fax Setup menu of the printer control panel.
If you have more than one telephone line, then make sure that you enter the number for the line on which the printer
is connected.
What is my dialing prefix?
The dialing prefix is the number or series of numbers that you press before you can dial the actual fax number or
telephone number. If the printer is an office setting or in a private branch exchange, this can be a specific number
that you need to press so you can make a call outside the office. This can also be a country code or an area code that
you need to enter if you are sending faxes outside of town. This can be very useful if you frequently send faxes to the
same country or area. When you set the dialing prefix in the utility, you do not need to press the number or series of
numbers every time you dial the fax number or telephone number. The printer automatically inputs the prefix every
time you dial.
You can enter up to 8 characters as your dialing prefix. The valid characters are the numbers 0-9 and the characters
# and *. If you are using the fax software to enter the dial prefix, then you may also include the characters period,
comma, star, pound, plus, minus, and parenthesis.
When do I need to set Auto Answer to On?
Set Auto Answer to On if you want the printer to receive faxes automatically.
If the printer is connected to the same telephone line with an answering machine, then you must set Auto Answer
to On so that you can receive both your voice calls and your faxes. Make sure that the answering machine is set to
pick up on fewer rings than the rings set in the printer. This lets the other devices pick up the voice calls first. If an
incoming call is a fax, the printer can detect fax signals on the line and takes the call.
How many rings should I set?
If the printer is sharing a line with an answering machine, then set the printer to pick up on the greater number of
rings. Because you have only one line, there is no way of distinguishing a voice call from an incoming fax. You can
set the number of rings so that the answering machine takes the voice calls and the printer takes the incoming faxes.
If you set the other devices to pick up on fewer rings, then the devices pick up calls first, and your voice calls are
received. If a call is a fax, then the printer can detect it and will take over the call.

If the printer is on a dedicated fax line, then you may set the printer to pick up on any number of rings that you want.
How do I set the distinctive ring for the printer?
Setting the correct ring is important if you subscribe to the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD) feature offered
by telephone companies. This feature allows you to have multiple telephone numbers on one telephone line. Each
telephone number has a designated ring pattern (a single ring, a double ring, a triple ring). The different ring patterns
let you know what telephone number was dialed, and what device you should use to answer the call.
Assign one of your telephone numbers to the printer as the fax number, and then set the printer to answer the ring
pattern of that number. If the pattern is set incorrectly, then the printer rings, but it never receives the fax.
To set the ring pattern in the printer:
1 From the home screen, navigate to Ring Pattern:
> Fax Setup > Ringing and Answering > Ring Pattern
2 Touch the correct ring pattern for the printer, and then touch Accept.
Distinctive Ring is also called Ident-a-Call, Smart Ring, Teen Ring, RingMaster, and IdentaRing.
How can I check the dial tone?
A dial tone lets you know if the telephone line is working or if the printer is properly connected to the telephone line.
If you encounter problems sending and receiving faxes, then make sure you can hear a dial tone on the line and
through the printer.
Make sure the telephone line and the wall jack are working
1 Plug an analog telephone into the wall jack.
2 Listen for a dial tone through the telephone handset.
If you hear a dial tone, then the telephone line and the wall jack are working.
If you do not hear a dial tone, plug the analog telephone into a second wall jack, and then listen for a dial tone.
If you hear a dial tone, then the telephone line is working but the first wall jack is not working.
Make sure the printer is connected properly to the telephone line
1 While the printer is connected to a telephone line through the
telephone into the
port on the back of the printer, plug an analog
port of the printer.
2 Listen for a dial tone.
If you hear a dial tone, then the telephone line is working and properly connected to the printer.
If you do not hear a dial tone through both the wall jack and the printer, then see the “Fax troubleshooting checklist”
on page 150.

How do I adjust the speaker volume on the printer?
Listen to the dial tone to check if the telephone line is working and to check if the cables and devices are connected
properly in your telephone network. Make sure that the dialing volume is not set to Off, especially if you are dialing
a number on hook. If you set the printer to receive faxes manually, then make sure that you set the ringer volume
loud enough for you to hear it.
Adjusting the dialing volume
1 From the home screen, navigate to Dial Volume:
> Fax Setup > Dialing and Sending > Dial Volume
2 Select a dial volume setting, and then touch Accept.
Adjusting the ringer volume
1 From the home screen, navigate to Ringer Volume:
> Fax Setup > Ringing and Answering > Ringer Volume
2 Select a ringer volume setting, and then touch Accept.
How can I make sure that fax calls go to the printer and voice calls
go to the answering machine?
To make sure the printer picks up incoming faxes, set Auto Answer to On, and then set the printer to pick up after a
greater number of rings than the answering machine. For example, if the answering machine picks up calls after four
rings, then set the printer to pick up after six rings. This way, the answering machine picks up calls first and your voice
calls are received. If the call is a fax, then the printer detects the fax signal on the line and takes over the call.
What settings work best with digital voice mail?
Voice mail and fax can share the same telephone line if you subscribe to a distinctive ring service. This feature allows
you to have multiple telephone numbers on one telephone line. Each telephone number has a designated ring
pattern (a single ring, a double ring, a triple ring). The different ring patterns let you know which telephone number
was dialed, and which device you should use to answer the call.
If you do not have distinctive ring service, then set the printer to receive faxes manually (Auto Answer Off). This setting
lets you receive both voice calls and fax calls, but works best if you use voice mail more often. You need to turn off
voice mail whenever you are expecting a fax.
How do I change the resolution of the documents that I fax?
The resolution, or fax quality, of the documents that you send may affect fax transmission. The receiving fax machine
may not support high resolutions and may not be able to receive your fax. You can fix this by enabling Auto Fax
Conversion, but the automatic conversion may result in an unreadable fax, especially if the original document is
already blurred.

be printed.
If an incoming fax or an outgoing fax fails due to power loss, then the printer automatically prints an error report the
next time it is turned on. For incoming faxes, the error report lets you know who sent the fax and how many pages
were not printed. For outgoing faxes, it lets you know how many pages were not sent. Faxes lost due to power loss
are not retrievable.

Installing the printer on a wireless network
Wireless network compatibility
Your printer contains an IEEE 802.11n wireless print server. Your printer is compatible with IEEE 802.11 b/g/n routers
that are Wi-Fi certified.
Supported network security options
The printer supports three wireless security options: no security, WEP, and WPA/WPA2.
No Security
It is not recommended to use no security at all on a home wireless network. Using no security means that anyone
within range of your wireless network can use your network resources—including Internet access, if your wireless
network is connected to the Internet. The range of your wireless network may extend far beyond the walls of your
home, allowing access to your network from the street or from your neighbors’ homes.
WEP
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is the most basic and the weakest type of wireless security. WEP security relies on a
series of characters called the WEP key.
Every device on the wireless network must use the same WEP key. WEP security can be used on both ad hoc and
infrastructure networks.
A valid WEP key has:
• Exactly 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters. Hexadecimal characters are A–F, a–f, and 0–9
or
• Exactly 5 or 13 ASCII characters. ASCII characters are letters, numbers, punctuation, and symbols found on a
keyboard.
WPA/WPA2
WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) and WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) offer stronger wireless network security than WEP.
WPA and WPA2 are similar types of security. WPA2 uses a more complex encryption method and is more secure than
WPA. Both WPA and WPA2 use a series of characters, called the WPA pre-shared key or passphrase, to protect wireless
networks from unauthorized access.
A valid WPA passphrase has:
• From 8 to 63 ASCII characters. ASCII characters in a WPA passphrase are case-sensitive.
or
• Exactly 64 hexadecimal characters. Hexadecimal characters are A–F, a–f, and 0–9.
Networking
101
Downloaded From ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
Every device on the wireless network must use the same WPA passphrase. WPA security is an option only on
infrastructure networks with wireless access points and network cards that support WPA. Most newer wireless
network equipment also offers WPA2 security as an option.
Note: If your network uses WPA or WPA2 security, then select WPA Personal when you are prompted to select the
type of security your network uses.
Printing a network setup page
A network setup page lists the configuration settings of the printer, including the IP address and MAC address of the
printer.
1 Load plain paper.
2 From the home screen, navigate to Print Setup Page:
> Network Setup > Print Setup Page
The network setup page prints.
Information you will need to set up the printer on a wireless
network
To set up the printer for wireless printing, you need to know:
• The name of your wireless network. This is also known as the Service Set Identifier (SSID).
• If encryption was used to secure your network.
• The security key (either a WEP key or WPA passphrase) that allows other devices to communicate on the network
if encryption was used to secure your network.
You can locate your network WEP key or WPA passphrase by accessing your wireless access point or router and
checking the security information.
If your wireless access point (wireless router) is using Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) security, the WEP key should be:
• Exactly 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters. Hexadecimal characters are A–F, a–f, and 0–9.
or
• Exactly 5 or 13 ASCII characters. ASCII characters are letters, numbers, punctuation, and symbols found on a
keyboard.
If your wireless access point is using Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) security, the WPA passphrase should be:
• From 8 to 63 ASCII characters. ASCII characters in a WPA passphrase are case-sensitive.
or
• Exactly 64 hexadecimal characters. Hexadecimal characters are A-F, a-f, and 0-9.
If your wireless network is not using security, then you will not have a security key.
Note: If you do not know the SSID of the network that your computer is connected to, launch the wireless utility of
the computer network adapter and look for the network name. If you cannot find the SSID or the security information
for your network, see the documentation that came with the wireless access point, or contact your system support
person.

Creating an ad hoc wireless network
The recommended way to set up your wireless network is to use a wireless access point (wireless router). A network
set up this way is called an infrastructure network. If you have an infrastructure network, you should configure the
printer for use on that network.
Note: The printer can communicate on only one wireless network at a time. Configuring the printer for an ad hoc
wireless network will keep it from working on any other wireless network, either ad hoc or infrastructure.
You can set up an ad hoc network if you:
• Do not have an access point or wireless router
• Do not already have a wireless network (but do have a wireless adapter for your computer)
• Want to set up a standalone network between the printer and a computer with a wireless network adapter
In Windows Vista or later

Configuring the printer wirelessly using WPS (Wi-Fi Protected
Setup)
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a method of configuring computers and printers on a secure wireless network. WPS is
faster than manual configuration, and it reduces typing errors when new devices are added to a wireless network.
The SSID and WPA passphrase are automatically detected and configured for you. The printer supports WPS and can
be configured for wireless access using WPS. In order to use WPS to configure the printer, the wireless router must
also support WPS.
If you want to use WPS to set up your printer, then insert the CD and follow the instructions on the computer screen.
Notes:
• To use WPS to configure the printer wirelessly, all of the devices on your wireless network must support WPS. If
any device on your network does not support WPS, then you must type the SSID and security information when
prompted.
• If you are using the PIN method to add your printer using WPS, make sure you type all eight digits when you are
asked to enter your PIN.

Networking FAQ
What is Wi-Fi Protected Setup?
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a simple and secure configuration that allows you to establish a wireless home network
and enable network security without requiring prior knowledge of Wi-Fi technology. It is no longer necessary to
configure the network name (SSID) and WEP key or WPA passphrase for network devices.
Note: WPS only supports networks that communicate through wireless access points (wireless routers).
Networking
116
Downloaded From ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
The printer supports the following methods in connecting to a wireless network:
• Personal Identification Number (PIN)—A PIN on the printer is entered into the wireless settings of the wireless
access point.
• Push Button Configuration (PBC)—Buttons on both the printer and the wireless access point are pushed within a
given period of time.
Look for any of these identifier marks to check if your wireless access point is WPS certified:
You can find these WPS logos on the side, back, or top of your wireless access point.
For more information on accessing the wireless settings and determining the WPS capability of your wireless access
point, see the documentation that came with the wireless access point or contact your system support person.
Where do I find my WEP key or WPA passphrase?
To find the WEP key or WPA passphrase for the wireless network, view the security settings on the access point or
wireless router. Most access points have a Web page that can be accessed using a Web browser.
You can also check the manual that came with your access point or router. If your access point or router is using the
default settings, you can find the information in the manual. If someone else set up your network for you, that person
or company may have included the information in the manual.
If you do not know how to access the Web page, or if you do not have administrator access to the wireless access
point on your network, and are unable to locate the information in the manual, contact your system support person.
What is an SSID?
A Service Set Identifier (SSID) is the name that identifies a wireless network. All devices on the network must know
the SSID of the wireless network or they will not be able to communicate with each other. Usually, the wireless network
broadcasts the SSID to allow wireless devices in the area to connect to it. Sometimes, the SSID is not broadcast for
security reasons.
If the SSID of your wireless network is not broadcast, it cannot be detected automatically and will not show up in the
list of available wireless networks. You must enter the network information manually in this situation.
An SSID can contain up to 32 alphanumeric characters.
Where do I find my SSID?
You can find the SSID for the wireless network by viewing the settings on the access point or wireless router. Most
access points have a built-in Web server that can be accessed using a Web browser.
Many network adapters provide a software application that allows you to view the wireless settings of your computer,
including your SSID. Check your computer to see if a program was installed with your network adapter.
If you are unable to locate your SSID using either of these methods, contact your system support person.

What is a network?
A network is a collection of devices such as computers, printers, Ethernet hubs, wireless access points, and routers
connected together for communication through cables or through a wireless connection. A network can be wired,
wireless, or designed to have both wired and wireless devices.
Devices on a wired network use cables to communicate with each other.
Devices on a wireless network use radio waves instead of cables to communicate with each other. For a device to be
able to communicate wirelessly, it must have a wireless network adapter attached or installed that lets it receive and
transmit radio waves.
How do I find out what type of security my network is using?
You must know the WEP key or WPA passphrase and the type of security (WEP, WPA, or WPA2) used on the wireless
network. To obtain this information, see the documentation that came with your wireless access point (wireless
router), see the Web page associated with the wireless access point, or consult your system support person.
Note: The WEP key or WPA passphrase is not the same as the password for the wireless access point. The password
allows you to access the wireless access point settings. The WEP key or WPA passphrase allows printers and computers
to join your wireless network.
How are home networks configured?
For desktop computers, laptops, and printers to communicate with each other over a network, they must be
connected by cables and/or have wireless network adapters built in or installed in them.
There are many different ways a network can be set up. Five common examples appear below.
Note: The printers in the following diagrams represent printers with internal print servers built in to them so that
they can communicate over a network.
Wired network example
• A desktop computer, a laptop, and a printer are connected by Ethernet cables to a hub, router, or switch.
• The network is connected to the Internet through a DSL or cable modem.

Scenario 3: Wireless network with no Internet access
• Computers and printers connect to the network using a wireless access point.
• The network has no connection to the Internet.
Scenario 4: Computer connected wirelessly to a printer without Internet access
• A computer is directly connected to a printer without going through a wireless router.
• This configuration is referred to as an ad hoc network.
• The network has no connection to the Internet.
Note: Most computers can connect to only one wireless network at a time. If you access the Internet over a wireless
connection, you will lose Internet access if you are connect to an ad hoc network.
Why do I need an installation cable?
When setting up the printer on your wireless network, the printer will need to temporarily connect to a computer
using the installation cable. This temporary connection is used to set up the wireless settings of the printer.
The installation cable connects to a rectangular USB port on the installing computer and the square USB port on the
printer.
Networking

Downloaded From ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
How do I attach the installation cable?
The installation cable attaches to a USB port on the computer and to the square connector on the back of the printer.
This connection allows you to configure the printer for a networked or locally attached installation.
1 Attach the large, rectangular connector to any USB port on your computer. USB ports may be on the front or the
back of the computer, and may be horizontal or vertical.
2 Attach the small, square connector to the printer.
3 Continue following the on-screen instructions.
How are infrastructure and ad hoc networks different?
Wireless networks can operate in one of two modes: infrastructure or ad hoc.
In infrastructure mode, all devices on a wireless network communicate with each other through a wireless router
(wireless access point). Devices on the wireless network must have valid IP addresses for the current network and
share the same SSID and channel as the wireless access point.
In ad hoc mode, a computer with a wireless network adapter communicates directly with a printer equipped with a
wireless print server. The computer must have a valid IP address for the current network and be set to ad hoc mode.
The wireless print server must be configured to use the same SSID and channel that the computer is using.

Finding the signal strength
Wireless devices have built-in antennas that transmit and receive radio signals. The signal strength listed on the
printer network setup page indicates how strongly a transmitted signal is being received. Many factors can affect
the signal strength. One factor is interference from other wireless devices or other devices such as microwave ovens.
Another factor is distance. The farther two wireless devices are from each other, the more likely it is that the
communication signal will be weaker.
The strength of the signal received by your computer can also affect the connectivity of the printer with the network
during configuration. When you installed the wireless adapter in your computer, the adapter software probably
placed an icon in your system tray. Try double-clicking this icon, and it will tell you how strongly the computer is
receiving the wireless signal from the network.
To improve signal quality, remove sources of interference and/or move wireless devices closer to the wireless access
point (wireless router).
Networking

Downloaded From ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
How can I improve wireless signal strength?
A common reason wireless printers fail to communicate over a network is poor wireless signal quality. If the signal
is too weak, too distorted, or blocked by an object, it cannot carry information between the access point and the
printer. To determine if the printer is receiving a strong signal from the access point, print a network setup page. The
Quality field indicates the relative strength of the wireless signal the printer is receiving. Drops in signal strength can
be intermittent, however, and although the signal quality appears high, it may drop during certain conditions.
If you think signal strength is a problem between your access point and the printer, try one or more of the following:
Notes:
• The solutions below are for infrastructure networks. If you are using an ad hoc network, adjust the computer
when the solution suggests adjusting the access point.
• Ad hoc networks have a much shorter range than infrastructure networks. Try moving the printer closer to the
computer if they seem to have trouble communicating.
MOVE THE PRINTER CLOSER TO THE WIRELESS ACCESS POINT/WIRELESS ROUTER
If the printer is too far away from the access point, it will not be able to communicate with other devices on the
network. For most indoor wireless networks, the maximum distance between the access point and the printer is
approximately 100 feet (30 meters). This distance could be longer or shorter, depending upon the layout of the
network and the limitations of the access point.
REMOVE OBSTACLES BETWEEN THE ACCESS POINT AND THE PRINTER
The wireless signal from your access point will pass through most objects. Most walls, floors, furniture and other
objects will not block the wireless signal. However, there are materials that are too dense for the signal to pass
through. Objects containing metal and concrete can block the signal. Arrange your printer and access point so
that the signal is not blocked by such objects.
REMOVE SOURCES OF INTERFERENCE
Other types of radio frequencies can cause problems with the wireless signal on your network. These sources of
interference can cause printing issues that seem to come and go. Turn off potential sources of interference where
possible. Avoid using microwaves and cordless phones when printing over your wireless network.
If another wireless network is operating in the vicinity, change the wireless channel on the access point.
Do not place your access point on a printer or other electronic device. Such devices can also interfere with the
wireless signal.
ARRANGE THE NETWORK TO REDUCE SIGNAL ABSORPTION
Even when the wireless signal is able to pass through an object, it is slightly weakened. If it passes through too
many objects, it can be significantly weakened. All objects absorb part of the wireless signal when it passes through
them, and certain types of objects absorb enough to cause communications problems. Place your access point as
high in the room as possible to avoid signal absorption.

How can I make sure my computer and printer are connected to the
same wireless network?
If the printer is not on the same wireless network as the computer, you will not be able to print wirelessly. The SSID
of the printer must match the SSID of the computer, if the computer is already connected to the wireless network.
For Windows users
1 Obtain the SSID of the network that the computer is connected to:
a Type the IP address of your wireless access point (wireless router) into the address field of your Web browser.
If you do not know the IP address of the wireless access point:
1 Click , or click Start and then click Run.
2 In the Start Search or Run box, type cmd.
3 Press Enter, or click OK.
The Command Prompt window opens.
4 Type ipconfig, and then press Enter. Check the Wireless Network Connection section:

Click OK.
On the main page, click Wireless or any other selection where settings are stored. The SSID will be displayed.
Write down the SSID.
Note: Make sure you copy it exactly, including any capital letters.
2 Print the printer network setup page.
In the Wireless section, look for SSID.
3 Compare the SSID of the computer and SSID of the printer.
If the SSIDs are the same, then the computer and the printer are connected to the same wireless network.
If the SSIDs are not the same, then run the utility again to set up the printer on the wireless network used by the
computer.

Can I use my printer on a USB and a network connection at the same
time?
Yes; the printer supports a simultaneous USB and network connection. The printer can be configured in the following
ways:

What is a MAC address?
A Media Access Control (MAC) address is a 48-bit identifier associated with the hardware of network equipment. The
MAC address may also be called the physical address because it is connected to the hardware of a device instead of
its software. The MAC address is displayed as a hexadecimal number in this format: 01-23-45-67-89-AB.
Every device capable of communicating on a network has a MAC address. Network printers, computers, and routers,
whether Ethernet or wireless, all have MAC addresses.
Networking

Downloaded From ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
While it is possible to change the MAC address of a network device, it is not common practice to do so. For this reason,
MAC addresses are considered permanent. IP addresses are easily changed, so MAC addresses are a more reliable
method of identifying a specific device on a network.
Routers with security capabilities may allow filtering of MAC addresses on networks. This allows a managed list of
devices to access the network, identified by their MAC addresses. MAC address filtering can help prevent access on
the network from unwanted devices, such as from intruders on a wireless network. MAC address filtering can also
prevent legitimate access if you forget to add a new device to the router's list of allowed addresses. If your network
uses MAC address filtering, be sure to add the MAC address of the printer to the list of allowed devices.
How do I find the MAC address?
Most network equipment has a unique hardware identification number to distinguish it from other devices on the
network. This is called the Media Access Control (MAC) address.
When installing the printer on a network, make sure you select the printer with the correct MAC address.
The MAC address label is located inside the printer.
MAC:
XX
XX
XX
XX
XX
XX
The MAC address of the internal print server is a series of letters and numbers. Other devices sometimes use a type
of MAC address called Universally Administered Address (UAA).
MAC:
XX XX XX XX XX XX
UAA:
XX XX XX XX XX XX
Note: A list of MAC addresses can be set on an access point (router) so that only devices with matching MAC addresses
are allowed to operate on the network. This is called MAC filtering. If MAC filtering is enabled in your access point and
you want to add a printer to your network, then the MAC address of the printer must be included in the MAC filter
list.

What is an IP address?
An IP address is a unique number used by devices (such as a wireless printer, computer, or wireless access point) on
an IP network to locate and communicate with each other. Devices on an IP network can communicate with each
other only if they have unique and valid IP addresses. A unique IP address means no two devices on the same network
have the same IP address.
An IP address is a group of four numbers separated by periods. An example of an IP address is 192.168.100.110.
What is TCP/IP?
Networks are able to function because computers, printers, and other devices are able to send data to each other,
either through cables or by using wireless signals. This transfer of data is made possible by sets of data transmission
rules called protocols. A protocol can be thought of as a language, and like a language, it has rules allowing participants
to communicate with each other.
Different types of networks use different protocols, but Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is the
most popular. TCP/IP is used to send data over the Internet as well as over most corporate and home networks.
Because computers do not understand words and instead rely upon numbers for communication, TCP/IP requires
that every device on a network using TCP/IP to communicate must have an IP address. IP addresses are essentially
unique computer names in a numeric format, used to transfer data around a network. IP addresses allow TCP/IP to
confirm requests for and receipt of data by various devices on the network.
How do I locate IP addresses?
For Windows users
1 Click
, or click Start and then click Run.
2 In the Start Search or Run box, type cmd.
3 Press Enter, or click OK.
The Command Prompt window opens.
4 Type ipconfig, and then press Enter.
The IP address appears as four sets of numbers separated by periods, such as 192.168.0.100.
For Macintosh users
1 From the Apple menu, choose About This Mac.
2 Click More Info.
3 From the Contents pane, choose Network.
4 If you are connected over a wireless network, choose AirPort from the Active Services list.
How to locate a printer IP address
• You can locate the printer IP address by viewing the printer network setup page.
Networking

Downloaded From ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
How are IP addresses assigned?
An IP address may be assigned automatically by the network using DHCP. Once the printer is set up on a computer,
the computer sends all print jobs across the network to the printer using this address.
If the IP address is not automatically assigned, you will be asked during wireless setup to manually enter an address
and other network information after selecting your printer from the available list.
What is a key index?
A wireless access point (wireless router) can be configured with as many as four WEP keys. Only one key is used on
the network at a time, however. The keys are numbered, and the number of a key is referred to as its key index. All
devices on the wireless network must be configured to use the same key index when multiple WEP keys are configured
on the wireless access point.
Select the same key index on your printer as you are using on your wireless access point.

Fax troubleshooting checklist
If you encounter problems sending and receiving faxes, then check the connection first:
1 Check for a dial tone on the telephone line by plugging an analog telephone into the wall jack, DSL filter, VoIP
device, or cable modem where you connected the printer. Make sure you plug the telephone into the same port.
If you do not hear a dial tone, then contact your line provider.
2 While the printer is connected to the telephone line, check for a dial tone by plugging an analog telephone into
the
port of the printer.
If you do not hear a dial tone, then use the checklist below. Listen for a dial tone after checking each item.
If you hear a dial tone but still have problems sending and receiving faxes, then see the other topics in this section.
Connection checklist
• Make sure that the printer and other devices on the line (if applicable) are set up and configured correctly
according to your setup scenario.
• Make sure that the cables are connected to the correct ports.
• Make sure that the cables are securely plugged in.
Check the cable connections for the following hardware, if applicable:
Power supply Answering machine Cable modem Splitter
Telephone
VoIP adapter
DSL filter
RJ-11 adapter
• If the printer is connected to a Digital Subscriber Line, then make sure you are using a DSL filter for the printer.
• If the printer is connected to a VoIP adapter or cable modem, then make sure that the printer is plugged into the
first phone port.
• If you are using a splitter, then make sure that you are using a phone splitter. Do not use a line splitter.
Cannot send faxes
If the “Fax troubleshooting checklist” does not solve the problem, then try one or more of the following:
MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE REGISTERED YOUR USER INFORMATION IN THE PRINTER
If you did not enter your user information during initial setup, then enter your fax name and fax number. In some
countries, you cannot send a fax without entering your fax name or company name. Some fax machines also block
unknown faxes or faxes without sender information.
DECREASE THE TRANSMISSION SPEED OF THE FAX MODEM
The modem of the printer can transmit data at 33,600 bps. This is the maximum speed at which the printer can
send and receive faxes. It is not necessary, however, to set the modem to its fastest transmission capability. The
speed of the modem of the receiving fax machine must match or be greater than the speed at which you are
sending your fax. Otherwise, your fax will not be received.
Troubleshooting
150
Downloaded From ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
To decrease the transmission speed of the modem:
1 From the home screen, navigate to Max Send Speed:
> Fax Setup > Dialing and Sending > Max Send Speed
2 Select a sending speed, and then touch Accept.
SET THE PRINTER TO SCAN THE ORIGINAL DOCUMENT BEFORE DIALING THE NUMBER
The printer does not automatically redial if you set it to scan the original document after dialing the number.
Set the printer to scan before dialing so that you do not have to scan the document again if the fax fails. The scanned
document is saved in the printer memory. The printer can then retrieve it and automatically redial the number.
To set the printer to scan before dialing:
1 From the home screen, navigate to Scan:
> Fax Setup > Dialing and Sending > Scan
2 Touch Before Dial, and then touch Accept.
ENABLE ERROR CORRECTION
Errors and blurs may appear in the faxed document if there is too much noise on the line. This option enables the
printer to transmit the bad blocks of data again and correct the errors. When a fax has too many errors, the fax may
be rejected by the receiving fax machine.
To make sure that error correction is enabled:
1 From the home screen, navigate to Error Correction:
> Fax Setup > Dialing and Sending > Error Correction
2 Check to see if error correction is set to On.
If it is not set to On, touch ON, and then touch Accept.
ENABLE AUTOMATIC FAX CONVERSION
If the receiving fax machine does not support color fax, then this option automatically converts the outgoing color
fax to black and white. It also automatically reduces the resolution of the fax to a resolution that the receiving
machine can support.
To make sure that automatic fax conversion is enabled:
1 From the home screen, navigate to Auto Fax Convert:
> Fax Setup > Dialing and Sending > Auto Fax Convert
2 Check to see if automatic fax conversion is set to On.
If it is not set to On, touch ON, and then touch Accept.
MAKE SURE THAT THE DIAL PREFIX SETTING IS CORRECT
The dialing prefix is the number or series of numbers that you press before you can dial the actual fax number or
telephone number. If the printer is in an office setting or in a private branch exchange, this can be a specific number
that you need to press so you can make a call outside the office.

Make sure that the dial prefix entered in the printer is correct for your network.
To check the dial prefix setting:
1 From the home screen, navigate to Dial Prefix:
> Fax Setup > Dialing and Sending > Dial Prefix
2 Check the prefix.
If the prefix is not correct, enter the correct prefix, and then touch Accept.
Cannot receive faxes
If the “Fax troubleshooting checklist” does not solve the problem, then try one or more of the following:
MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE CONFIGURED THE CORRECT SETTINGS FOR YOUR SETUP
The fax settings depend on whether the printer is connected to its own fax line or shares the line with other devices.
If the printer is sharing the line with other devices, then make sure that the following are set:
• Auto Answer is On.
• The printer picks up on a greater number of rings than the other devices.
• The printer picks up on the correct distinctive ring, if you subscribe to a distinctive ring service.
MAKE SURE THAT THE PRINTER IS CONNECTED TO AN ANALOG PORT
The printer is an analog device. If you are using a PBX system, then make sure that the printer is connected to an
analog port on the PBX. You may need a digital line converter that converts digital signals into analog signals.
MAKE SURE THAT THE PRINTER MEMORY IS NOT FULL
The printer saves an incoming fax to the printer memory before it prints the fax. If the printer runs out of ink or
runs out of paper while receiving the fax, then the printer saves the fax so you can print it later. However, if the
printer memory is full, then the printer may not be able to receive more incoming faxes. An error message appears
on the display when the printer memory is full. Resolve the error to free up space in the printer memory.
MAKE SURE THAT FAX FORWARDING IS DISABLED
You may have turned on Fax Forwarding. Disable this option so that the printer can receive the fax.
1 From the home screen, navigate to Fax Forward:
> Fax Setup > Ringing and Answering > Fax Forward
2 Touch OFF, and then touch Accept.
INCREASE THE RINGER VOLUME
If you set the printer to receive faxes manually (Auto Answer Off), then increase the ringer volume.
MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE THE CORRECT MANUAL ANSWER CODE
If you set the printer to receive faxes manually (Auto Answer Off), then you need to press the correct code when
a fax comes in so that the printer can receive it.

2 Copy the manual answer code that appears on the touch screen.
Cannot run the fax software
The printer must be connected to a telephone, DSL, VoIP, or cable service before you can configure the fax settings
in the fax software.
MAKE SURE THE FAX SOFTWARE IS INSTALLED
The Fax Solutions Software is optional for Windows users and is installed with the printer software only if you select
it on the “Install Additional Software” screen during installation. If you did not install the fax software, then the Fax
tab on the Printer Home takes you to our Web site where you can download the software.
MAKE SURE THE PRINTER IS CONNECTED TO A TELEPHONE LINE
You need to connect the printer to your telephone line (through a standard wall jack, a DSL filter, a VoIP adapter,
or a cable modem) before you can open the fax software and configure the fax settings.

Communication with printer lost when connected to Virtual Private
Network (VPN)
You will lose your connection to a wireless printer on your local network when connected to most Virtual Private
Networks (VPNs). Most VPNs allow users to communicate with only the VPN and no other network at the same time.
If you would like to have the ability to connect to your local network and to a VPN at the same time, the system
support person for the VPN must enable split tunneling. Be aware that some organizations will not allow split
tunneling due to security or technical concerns.

• Exactly 64 hexadecimal characters. Hexadecimal characters are A–F, a–f, and 0–9.
Note: If you do not know this information, then see the documentation that came with the wireless network, or
contact the person who set up your wireless network.
CHECK IF YOUR WIRELESS ACCESS POINT HAS AN ASSOCIATION/REGISTRATION BUTTON
Wireless broadband boxes in Europe, the Middle East and Africa such as LiveBox, AliceBox, N9UF Box, FreeBox, or
Club Internet may require you to press an association/registration button when adding the printer to your wireless
network.
If you are using one of these boxes and need more information, see the documentation that came with your box,
or contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
MOVE YOUR ACCESS POINT AWAY FROM OTHER ELECTRONIC DEVICES
There may be temporary interference from electronic devices such as microwave ovens or other appliances,
cordless phones, baby monitors, and security system cameras. Make sure your access point is not positioned too
closely to these devices.
MOVE THE COMPUTER AND/OR PRINTER CLOSER TO THE WIRELESS ROUTER
The range of your wireless network depends on many factors, including the abilities of your router and network
adapters. If you are having trouble printing, try placing the computer and printer no more than 100 feet apart.
CHECK THE WIRELESS SIGNAL QUALITY
Print the network setup page and check the signal quality. If the signal quality is listed as good or excellent, then
another factor is causing the problem.

• Waiting to make an ad hoc connection to another wireless device
• Not connected to a wireless network
The printer may be unable to join the network because of interference, its distance from the wireless access point
(wireless router), or until its settings are changed.
These are possible solutions. Try one or more of the following:
CHECK NETWORK NAME
Make sure your network does not have the same name as another network near you. For example, if you and your
neighbor both use a manufacturer's default network name, your printer could be connecting to your neighbor's
network.
If you are not using a unique network name, consult the documentation for your wireless access point (wireless
router) to learn how to set a network name.
If you set a new network name, you must reset the printer and computer SSID to the same network name.

• Temporarily turn off any unnecessary wireless devices on your network and pause any network-intensive
activities, like large file transfers or network games. If the network is too busy, it is possible that the printer is
not receiving the IP address within the allowed time.
• Make sure your DHCP server, which may also be your wireless router, is working and is configured to assign IP
addresses. If you are not sure how to do this, refer to the manual that came with your wireless router for more
information.
If the printer and computer have valid IP addresses and the network is operating correctly, continue

Resolving intermittent wireless communications issues
You may notice that your printer works for a short time and then stops working, although apparently nothing has
changed on your wireless network.
Many different issues can interrupt network communications, and sometimes more than one problem exists at the
same time. These are possible solutions. Try one or more of the following:
DISCONNECT FROM ALL VPNS WHEN ATTEMPTING TO USE THE WIRELESS NETWORK
Most Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) allow computers to communicate with only the VPN and no other network
at the same time. Disconnect from the VPN before installing the driver on the computer or before running the
wireless setup on the computer.
To check if the computer is currently connected to a VPN, open your VPN Client software and check your VPN
connections. If you do not have a VPN Client software installed, check the connections manually using the Windows
VPN Client.
If you would like to have the ability to connect to your local network and to a VPN at the same time, the system
support person for the VPN must enable split tunneling. Be aware that some organizations will not allow split
tunneling due to security or technical concerns.
TURN OFF THE WIRELESS ACCESS POINT (WIRELESS ROUTER) AND TURN IT BACK ON AGAIN
ELIMINATE NETWORK CONGESTION
If a wireless network is too busy, the computer and printer may have difficulty communicating with each other.
Some causes of wireless network congestion can include:
•
•
•
•
•
Transferring large files across the network
Networked games
Peer-to-peer file swapping applications
Streaming video
Too many computers on the wireless network at once
ELIMINATE SOURCES OF INTERFERENCE
Common household items can potentially disrupt wireless network communications. Cordless phones (but not
cellular phones), microwave ovens, baby monitors, almost any kitchen appliance, wireless surveillance equipment,
nearby wireless networks, and any appliance containing a motor can disrupt wireless network communications.
Try turning on any potential sources of interference and see if it causes the problem. If it does, separate your wireless
network from the device.
CHANGE THE CHANNEL THE WIRELESS ROUTER USES
You can sometimes eliminate interference from unknown sources by changing the channel your wireless router
uses to broadcast. There are three distinct channels on a router. Check the documentation that came with your
router to determine which three apply. Other channels are offered as options, but these overlap. If the router is
configured to use the default settings, change the channel setting to use a different distinct channel. Refer to the
manual that came with your wireless router if you are not sure how to change the channel.
Troubleshooting
173
Downloaded From ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
CONFIGURE THE WIRELESS ROUTER WITH A UNIQUE SSID
Many wireless networks use the SSID that the router was originally configured by the manufacturer to use. Using
the default SSID can cause problems when more than one network is operating in the same area with the same
SSID. The printer or computer may attempt to attach to the wrong network, although it will appear to be trying to
connect to the correct network.
To avoid this type of interference, change the SSID on your wireless router from the default. Refer to the manual
that came with your router if you are not sure how to change the SSID.
Note: You must change the SSID on all of the other devices that access your wireless network if you change the
SSID on the router.
ASSIGN STATIC IP ADDRESSES TO ALL DEVICES IN THE NETWORK
Most wireless networks use a DHCP server (dynamic host configuration protocol) built in to the wireless router to
assign IP addresses to clients on the wireless network. DHCP addresses are assigned when they are needed, as
when a new device is added to the wireless network or when it is powered on. Wireless devices must send a request
to the router, and receive an IP address in response so they can function on the network. Because the router
performs many other tasks besides assigning addresses, it sometimes does not respond quickly enough with an
address. The requesting device sometimes gives up before it receives an address.
Try assigning static IP addresses to the devices in your network to resolve this issue. Static IP addresses cut down
on the work your wireless router has to do. Refer to the manual that came with your router and your operating
system documentation if you are not sure how to assign static IP addresses.
To assign a static IP address to the printer, do the following:
1 Complete the wireless setup, allowing the printer to receive a DHCP address from a DHCP server on the network.
2 Print a network setup page to see what IP address is currently assigned to the printer.
3 Open a Web browser and then type the printer IP address in the address field. Press Enter.
The printer Web page loads.
4 Click the Configuration link.
5 Click the TCP/IP link.
6 Click the Set Static IP Address link.
7 Type the IP address you want to assign to the printer in the IP Address field.
8 Click the Submit button.
The Submitting Selection message appears.
Confirm that the IP address is updated by typing the static IP address in the browser address field and checking to
see if the printer Web page reloads.
CHECK FOR KNOWN ISSUES WITH THE WIRELESS ROUTER
Some wireless routers have documented defects that were identified and resolved by the manufacturers. Visit the
company Web site of the router manufacturer. Check for firmware updates and other advice from the manufacturer.
Check the manual that came with your wireless router if you are not sure how to reach the manufacturer Web site.
Troubleshooting

CHECK FOR WIRELESS ADAPTER UPDATES
If you are having trouble printing from one particular computer, check the Web site of the manufacturer of the
network adapter card in that computer. It is possible that there is an updated driver available that could resolve
the issue.
CHANGE ALL NETWORK DEVICES TO THE SAME TYPE
While it is possible to successfully mix 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n devices on the same wireless network, the
faster devices will sometimes prevent the slower devices from communicating. Wireless devices are designed to
wait for a gap in wireless network communications before attempting to send information. If newer, faster devices
are constantly using the wireless network, then older, slower devices will not have a chance to send data.
Try only turning on the network devices of the same type and see if network communications improve. If this solves
the problem, you may want to upgrade your older devices with newer network adapters.
PURCHASE A NEW ROUTER
If your router is several years old, it may not be fully compatible with the newer wireless devices on your network.
Consider purchasing a newer router that is fully compliant with the 802.11 IEEE specifications.

The power consumption levels listed in the previous table represent time-averaged measurements. Instantaneous
power draws may be substantially higher than the average.
Values are subject to change. See www.lexmark.com for current values.
Power Saver
This product is designed with an energy-saving mode called Power Saver. The Power Saver Mode is equivalent to
the Sleep Mode. The Power Saver Mode saves energy by lowering power consumption during extended periods of
inactivity. The Power Saver Mode is automatically engaged after this product is not used for a specified period of
time, called the Power Saver Timeout.
Factory default Power Saver Timeout for this product (in minutes):
60
By using the configuration menus, the Power Saver Timeout can be modified between 1 minute and 240 minutes.
Setting the Power Saver Timeout to a low value reduces energy consumption, but may increase the response time
of the product. Setting the Power Saver Timeout to a high value maintains a fast response, but uses more energy.
Off mode
If this product has an off mode which still consumes a small amount of power, then to completely stop product power
consumption, disconnect the power supply cord from the wall outlet.
Total energy usage
It is sometimes helpful to calculate the total product energy usage. Since power consumption claims are provided
in power units of Watts, the power consumption should be multiplied by the time the product spends in each mode
in order to calculate energy usage. The total product energy usage is the sum of each mode's energy usage.
