How to Connect a Lexmark Printer to a Wired Network
Connecting your printer to your router with an Ethernet cable allows you to print from virtually any device connected to the same router. This may save you space by reducing the number of printers you need, and a good amount of money on the ink cartridges they would go through. This guide will go over steps to get your printer connected to your router via Ethernet cable.
In order to complete these steps, you will need a router attached to your modem, an additional Ethernet cable available, and your printer must have an Ethernet port on the rear.
1 Connect via Ethernet
- In order to connect to a wired Ethernet connection, your printer needs to have an Ethernet port on the rear. This will vary depending on the model printer you have.
- Acquire an Ethernet cable and connect it to the port on the back of the printer.
- Take the other end of the Ethernet cable and plug it into your router's Ethernet port.
- This is all that is needed to get your printer physically connected to your network.
