I had to reinstall windows back in my computer because it was corrupted with virus. My kids play online games using my computer and they might have clicked something that got the infection in my computer. I had to reinstall everything back, all the software and application i had before. Your quick guide on how to connect lexmark printer to wifi without cd was really helpful. After the reinstallation, it never struck me that i had to install the printer drivers. This whole time i was trying to connect it directly without realizing it. Thanks

I use an old version lexmark printer and misplaced the printer CD that came along with it. My son told me that i can directly download the software from the internet but i did not have the slightest clue on how to do it. I have checked everywhere on the internet on how to connect lexmark printer to wifi without cd and none of them provided a step by step solution. The steps you have mentioned helped me understand how to download the software from the internet and install it. After restarting the computer, i got the menu for the printer and was able to print the pictures that i wanted to. Thank you for your help.
