kodak esp5250 wont connect on toshiba a200-27

Kodak / Esp5250
January 11, 2011 at 14:32:23
Specs: Windows Vista
I have a toshiba a200-27r laptop (operating on vista) and a wi-fi kodak esp5250 wireless printer. All drivers are in downloaded. My internet connection is by dongle only on 3, a zte mf627.When I bought the printer I was told I didnt need anything else to print from pc to printer for the internet. Then spent a week trying to configure both. After talking to someone else they told me I needed a router to act as a bridge, so I bought one (more expense!), a belkin n150 f6d420uk4. The printer is now set up to the router (and recognises it) and the pc recognises the router. Unfortunately, I keep getting asked for a network security key/name to set up a local network for the pc,and I dont ever remember setting one up. If I go into the kodak printing program on the desktop, it just says, printer disconnected. I have know spent 2 weeks and more money on something that I thought was easy to set up. Please help as I am worried about throwing the lot through the window!! I have tried installing the printer on a network on the pc only to have an error message 'you do not have sufficient rights to perform this operation'

Right you only need to ensure that you have your router setup with 1. An SSID (Network Name) and 2. A network Key (either WEP/WPA/WPA2 etc).

Once your router is setup correctly its a case of going into the printers settings on the screen into the network setup and put in the same SSID and Key. The printer will they try to access your network is successful it will connect.

Then by installing the Kodak software the printer will be picked up via the network.
