Lexmark 802.11b Wireless Print Adapter

The Lexmark 802.11b Wireless Print Adapter allows customers to quickly place Ethernet-capable Lexmark printers on a wireless network.

The Lexmark 802.11b Wireless Print Adapter allows users to easily convert a Lexmark printer with standard Ethernet connectivity to a wireless printer. The wireless adapter connects to the printer's existing Ethernet print server transforming the Ethernet signal to an 802.11b wireless signal. The Wireless Print Adapter works in conjunction with existing WI-Fi certified access points or can be used in peer-to-peer networks not requiring an access point.

Lexmark's solution allows enterprise customers to migrate to the 802.11b standard with zero IT investment. No need to configure software drivers and no need to modify existing printer settings. The Wireless Print Adapter allows you to leverage your existing investment in the Ethernet standard while delivering the convenience of wireless printing. The Wireless Print Adapter delivers up to 11 Mbps transfer rates and operates at a maximum distance of 1200 feet. It is compatible with all operating systems including Windows, Linux and Mac.

Functioning as an Ethernet to wireless bridge, the Wireless Print Adapter seamlessly integrates wireless printing onto your network. It can be used in either a peer-to-peer mode for small networks or in conjunction with an 802.11b access point for larger workgroups. In addition, you don't have to replace your Ethernet print servers with wireless counterparts. The wireless adapter allows a user to connect the 802.11b adapter directly to the pre-existing Ethernet print server at a much lower cost than dedicated wireless print servers. Since the wireless print adapter simply connects to the printer's network port using a standard patch cable, installing the adapter doesn't require the assistance of an expensive certified technician. The adapter is easily configured using a Java enabled Web browser such as Internet Explorer. No change to Lexmark drivers or other software is necessary.

The Lexmark 802.11b Wi-Fi certified wireless print adapter operates in conjunction with other Wi-Fi certified products from over 140 manufacturers. Lexmark's wireless adapter provides 802.11b connectivity, data encryption and Wi-Fi compatibility to any Ethernet capable Lexmark printer.
