Question
Hi Norman...

I have a Lexmark Prevail Pro 705 all-in-one. My desktop PC is a Lenovo with Windows 7.  My internet connection is through Wild Blue which is a satellite since we live in a rural area.

My issue is this:  Not knowing what I was doing, I tried (unsucessfully) to make my Galaxy Tablet print wirelessly to my Lexmark printer. Now my printer will not scan to my desktop computer. When I press the scan button, the picture on the printer screen says Network and has a wireless icon. It says Press OK. When I press OK, it says Network Connection in Progress, then goes back to the same screen.

I need to know how to change my printer from Wireless back to "wired."

I can print from my computer, by the way.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Answer
below is a link to the pages in the manual with how to switch to wired and how to go back to wireless

if that does not work then check out the reasons for failure and try the necessary steps in the link below

if the first two links didn't help then chances are you switched your active network from auto to manual
the link below will show you how to switch back
