Hello

 

I have a Lexmark Z1480 - if I go onto Bonjour I can see the network webpage my my printer configurations...

 

I have uninstalled all Lexmark software etc as best I could and that part seems OK...

 

There is still however the Lexmark network webpage that my wireless printer was using to print wirelessly on my network...

 

How can I get rid of this webpage - I just want shot of it!!

 

Many Thanks,

    Uninstall the printer in system preferences.

    Ok...here goes...

     

    Uninstalled all Lexmark drivers, utilities, software junk from the HD...

     

    Dragged and dropped the ones that didn't go at the 'uninstall' into the Trash...the machine is now completely clear

     

    When I switch the printer on, the wireless WIFI icon on the side of the printer is still glowing 'green'...

     

    It is clearly still connected to my wireless network somehow...

     

    I want to install a new printer onto my network and i'm sure the software that comes with the new printer will allow me to do that no problem...

     

    When I click on the printers network webpage (click on 'show all bookmarks'; select Bonjour; it's listed below the Bonjour intro page) it has all the settings which allow the printer to work correctly on my home network...

     

    Here is the million dollar question...how do I delete that page? It is password protected and no doubt it will be difficult to crack, but wouldn't it be much more secure for me if it wasn't there to be cracked in the first place?

     

    Any help on how to delete the network connection for my printer would be very much appreciated...it is still there after the uninstall process...

     

    Any and all please wade into the debate...the more help the better...I'm a bit of a luddite when it comes to tech stuff like this...

     

    There are plenty of Mac Experts who could give me a hand here !!!!!

     

    Many Thanks,

    The only way it can still appear in the network is due to the printer still having the login details for your network.. why don't you either login into the printer and set it back to factory default.. or simply change the password in the wireless router.. it will then be unavailable to the network.
