    I have a Lexmark X4530 Wireless printer and i am trying to connect it to my Hp laptop with Vista using my Netgear wireless router.It connects to the laptop but when i try to print something it just makes a folder in the C drive and makes a file in it and does not print anything.The printer works when i use the USB cable but when it does not when i try do it without the cable with wifi.DO i need any USB wireless adapter for it or something or do i need to fix something in the laptop

  2. Determine the IP of the NIC on the printer, then create a Standard TCP/IP
    port targeting the IP. Set the printer to the new port.

    okay, this one seems was easy enough until i almost missed a goo
    solution. i was having this same problem. searching for other forum
    did no good. lexmark tech support was telling me the same things yo
    all have heard.

    i am running Vista Home Premium and i still have the original CD tha
    came with the X4530 when i bought it. CD doesn't work either. go t
    your system properties. the first section is 'windows edition.' The
    'System', under system type it shows to be 64-bit. I downloaded th
    64-bit installer and it went right through. works with the wireless an
    USB connections on windows vista

    we just got too accustomed to our old XP machines:
