Cons: I just ordered and set this up for someone's home office. The setup (going through the wizards) took just a few minutes. I connected this printer into a wireless router via an Ethernet cable. The drivers on the computer picked up the printer by the IP address, and I was printing within minutes.
HOWEVER; this being a workgroup grade printer needs to have the ability to configure a static IP address easily. I looked over the documentation and the configuration software and found nothing relating to setting a static IP. Maybe there is an ability to set the IP address manually, but Lexmark don't document it or make it easy. Maybe I missed it, but I am pretty sure that I didn't.
Most (higher end) printers make it easy to assign the IP address right on the printer's built in display. This printer doesn't have a display, just some LED indicators, but there still should be an easy way to configure a static IP address.
The only way I could figure out how to give this thing a static IP is by assigning a DHCP scope of 1 address to a VLAN, and assigning a single network port to that VLAN.
That's kind of a big oversight for a supposed network printer in my book. If the Manufacturer wants to address that issue here that would be great. If you do, please don't tell me to call your support # (I won't), just post the solution to the problem here.
