My printers never came without a cable. I don't remember having to buy it separately.

New printers never come with a usb cable oddly enough! I'll never understand
why they are not included as it is essential to connect a printer in order
to use it!

And if you think back to your parallel and serial printers - they never came
with a cable either!

Yet most other peripherals usually come with a connecting cable, be it a
phone or other piece of equipment!

Chris, I would first check whether they should have sent one.  Look at the
sheet that may have come to tell you what was in the box first and/or then
call them to check before you go out buying one.  After all, you'll almost
certainly get the right one then.  I haven't known a printer come without
its cables before.

Hi Larry.
No problem, have managed to install the printer drivers.
It requires the review mode of the screen reader of choice but it can
be done. Looking forward to hear where I can purchase appropriate USB
cables for this printer.
Take care.

I'm not sure how good the Lexmark installer is, it might speak
through the installation but you might need sighted assistance to set
It up.
You have to initially set the printer up via usb and then you get the
choice of connecting wirelessly. When you choose the wireless option
you will be asked to identify the wireless network you wish to
connect to and will also need to enter the wireless key.
Printing via wireless will be fine but I don't think you can scan
wirelessly.

You'll probably need sighted help in configuring the printer itself
to connect via WLAN; I believe that has to be done on the printers
interface itself, rather than the software side.

Hello all.
I have received my new printer today. It connects via either USB or
wireless. It is a Lexmark X2670 multifunction inkjet printer, which
I got from www.play.com for £24.99. It should have been about £70,
but clearly it was on offer. Will keep you updated. Trying to get
wireless working but understand I am new to this area and that is
why I haven't got Windows 7 to find it at the moment.
Take care.
