    ive tryed alot of ways of adding my printer but still cant seem to get it to work. my printer is the lexmark 3500-4500 series all in one, it works on my desktop computers (windows) a it is using wireless and is also wirelessly connected to the modem/router. the printer shows up on bonjour but when i add it using the 'windows' tab and navigating to my pc that is connected to the printer, it just says cant communicate with printer
    the printers ip is 192.168.2.14
    sharing is enabled on the pc

    Don't use the Windows tab - the lexmark (OS X) driver doesn't do Windows.
    You didn't say - can you select model and add it using Bonjour? (Or am I misunderstanding and the printer is connected by USB to a Windows computer? If so, you're out of luck.)

    i can see the printer fine in bonjour its just not letting me add it when i go onto the printers page
    plus the printer is not connected to any computer or the modem/router by usb, its purely wireless
