HELP!! How do I connect my Lexmark 1400 series Wireless printer to my new FiOS router?

Message 1 of 4

I can't seem to figure out how to get my Lexmark 1400 series router to talk to my new FiOS router.  I had it previously hooked up via a etgear router when I had DSL up until last night.  I know with that router I had to go in and enter the printer's MAC address so the router would allow it to talk to it.

 

HELP!!!  i can't figure this out for anything and I NEED my printer....wirelessly!

 

Thanks.

Hey im not trying to shrug you off but I think the fastest response would be to call Lexmark

Phone:
800-539-6275
How to reach a live person:
Press 1 at the first recording and then just sit through the messaging until transferred to a person.
Hours of Operation:
M-F 9 Am - 9 pm ET
Sat 12 noon - 6 pm ET
and ask them how to configure it
 Info you will need
192.168.1.1  to login to your router
admin
password or password1 for the password

I  do not believe that the Verizon Routers have MAC Filtering enabled by default, so any device should be able to connect if it provides the proper information (ESSID and WEP Key) to the router.

 

Just follow the instuctions from Lexmarks web Site:

 

Lexmark 1400 Series - Installing Network Printers

Same as what BrianMcD wrote. But once you get it to connect, you may need to lock it down to always get the same IP based on MAC address.
