Can't scan over wireless network with Lexmark x4650

Posted: 12-19-2008, 06:37 AM

I have Vista Home Premium 32 bit and just installed a new Lexmark x465
all-in-one. I can print perfectly when it is connected wirelessl
(through the printer's internal connection to the network), but it won'
recognize there is a scanner on it. If I connect it via USB, it works
I have tried disabling both the firewall (McAfee and Windows) and th
wireless router. I can't see to find anyone who can print but not sca
over the network. Any thoughts

Network scanning (and Faxing) with All in Ones is often a no go, usually due
to Mfr supplied software & drivers.
I'd check to see that the mfr does support network scanning before I spent a
bunch of time and effort trying to make it work.

I'm on my third "all in one printer, scanner,ect"2 -hewlett packer(1
-photosmart,1-officejet)1-brother brand. Every one will wirelessly print NONE
of them will wirelessly scan. They all say "cannot find device". Hard to
believe two different manufacturers have the EXACT same problem-hmm think I
have the next mac ad!

I don't have an answer, but if you are willing to supply some
information, I would like to try to help.

How exactly is the printer/scanner connected to the network? Do you
have it set for DHCP or a static IP address? I like to use static for
certain devices.

Which procedure in the manuals did you use to set it up (I have a copy)?

Does this printer use the same port for printing and scanning or are
multiple ports required or is the software set to receive from a IP
address? Maybe just tell me how it is set up for printing and/or scanning.

Is there some type of Bi-directional setting that may or may not be enabled?

Unless the manufacturer specifically includes network scanning software, a
scanner (whether standalone or included in an all in one unit) is NOT
normally a networkable device. If you are connecting to an all in one with
a wireless connection, then you are connecting over a network.

You MUST check with the device manufacturer before pouring all your hard
earned cash into a wireless all in one unit to see if it will do what you
want and need it to do. T

here are such things as network scanners, Epson make some very nice ones,
starting at about $3,000. As you can see, in most cases, it is cheaper to
give multiple PCs locally connected standalone scanners instead of
purchasing a networkable one.

Besides which, there is the additional footwork involved... walking to the
scanner/all in one, placing the document in the scanning unit, walking back
to the PC, scanning the document (and hoping it comes out right first time),
walking back to the scanner/all in one unit, removing the document, walking
back to the PC. And if you don't scan it perfectly first time........ you
could get very fit in no time at all, particularly if it's not on the same
floor. If it's a multiple page document, plan on running in your local
marathon in the near future, because you'll be getting a lot of exercise.
