Good morning, I hope that someone can help.
I have a Kodak ESP6150 all in one printer which has built in wifi.
I have three laptops and one desktop machine. Two of the laptops are running Windows 7 and the other laptop and desktop are running Windows XP.
All are connected to a Belkin Wireless N+ Router. The laptops are connected by wireless and the desktop by ethernet cable.
I have installed the Kodak software onto all of the machines. Part of the software is a Printer Network Setup Utility which is meant to find the printer and install the required drivers for printing and scanning.
On the desktop, which is wired, I run the software and it finds the printer with no problems and you can print and scan.
However the issue is with the laptops.
All of the laptops have the same AV and FW apart from one. When I run the Printer Network Setup Utility on the laptops, which are wireless, I get the same problem on all. The software cannot find the printer and displays the error "Printer not Connected"
I have tried everything from disabling the firewall and AV but still none of laptops can find the printer over wireless.
There is apparently no internal firewall on the router (according to Belkin) so that should not be the issue.
The funny thing is that with one of the laptops, if I connect it to the router via cable it finds the printer, disconnect the cable so that it is back on the wireless and it cannot find it!
I am at the end of my tether with this so if anyone can help or provide suggestions then it would be great.
If you have any questions I will do my best to answer.
Please please please can anyone help with this?
