The port to which the printer is connected is not supported. Check the port
I'm assuming you are using a USB connection, not a Ethernet connection.
Try a different USB port (preferably in the REAR of the computer, not the front). It's not unusual to have 1 or 2 poorly-performing (low power) ports on a PC; some printers don't like those.
If you have a really old computer, it may have ancient USB type "1" (slow) ports instead of the newer 2.0 or 3.0 USB type. Some printers don't like old USB 1 ports, but it is not supposed to matter.
If all else fails, try another USB cord, or a shorter one. Some printers don't work well with cords longer than 4 feet, and USB cords can go bad.
Or, try the printer on another computer. If the same USB cord works fine there, YOUR computer has the problem (probably a USB port or USB driver issue).
Are you having issues with other USB devices? If so, it may be a Windows driver issue.
Good luck. If no help, post your exact printer model # here, or try contacting Lexmark.com support
