    I'm trying to install my printer. It says to go to the Printer Setup Utility, after I press the + button, it tells me to add remote printer. It asks me for a IP Address. I put it in, but says it's not it.

    The printer is a Lexmark 3500-4500, and it's wireless. I installed the software, it's just the IP Adress Problem...

    Please help...:(

    Utilities>Network Utility>Ping>Then type in your ip address of the printer. Is will then get a response back if it is right. It should look like this
