firstly printing through a network need to ensure you have internet access weather home or form the office.second having correct printer driver is very important. uninstall old drivers check devices manager for installation and devices details. if the problem persist check your USB printer cable the following link should be of help. http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/2009-fall/v9842009_en.pdf
unfortunately I had the same problem and despite extensive troubleshooting and patching system from lexmark.com I eventually just uninstalled and completely reinstalled the software with the cd. took all of 3min and problem fixed!!
With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the
driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into
the USB port until told to do so.
To fix a fouled install :
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the sofware asks for the printer connect it and continue
Most of the time the "problem communicating with the printer" message pops up on Lexmark X1185 series when the driver gets corrupted. The best fix for this issue would be to uninstall the software first. Try connecting the USB to a different USB port (Please avoid using USB hubs, if any) and then reinstall the software. This should normally fix the printer communication issues!
I had to reinstall printer and download a new driver from Microsoft for Vista (by Jan 08 there were MANY revisions). It also helped to unplug printer connections, turn off computer and pug printer back in before rebooting. But you'll haveto keep doing this until you reinstall.
First try plugging into a different USB port. I have seen several machines have a port suddenly die for no apparent reason. If that dosent work, try a different USB cable. Assuming the printer is working, the only thing left is either the cable or the port you have it plugged into.
