Hello,

A customer of mine has a Kodak 5250 Series Scanner / Printer with wireless capability.  The setup program attemtps to scan the wireless
network looking for the printer and when it fails, forces you to use a USB cable or quit.  I can manually add the printer using the windows add
printer wizard and then specify the printer's IP address (I was able to connect the printer to the wireless network using the printers control panel
and entering the SSID, Security type, and Key and can get it to work but I cannot manually add the scanner because the wizard is not able to parse
the autorun.ini properly.

The scanner is connected to the wireless network and is on the same subnet as the computer.
The firewall is disabled and I even tried disabling the virus scanning software (Kaspersky)

It prints fine: I can manually add the printer, tell it to use a LPT port, then specify a new TCP/IP port afterward, but I cannot install the scanner unless
I use the setup.exe that comes on the CD or downloaded from Kodak's website...  I am sure I mgiht be able to fool it with a USB cable and using
the setup CD but if I can avoid makign the customer buy a USB cable I would like to.

Any ideas?

Your router has to support Multicast: http://support.en.kodak.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/7597/kw/ESP%205250%20wireless%20scanning%20setup

If it does, then try these: http://support.en.kodak.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/7559/kw/ESP%205250%20wireless%20scanning%20setup/related/1

and/or use a wired network connection to the printer at a static ip address after you turn off the wireless in the printer.
