The Router won't affect the printer. Try a repair, go into Start/Settings/Control panel/Add remove programs, find the printer software in the list and if there's an option to repair, go for it. If not...
You may need to update your driver:

I have a Canon Pixma MX860. I have it set up to recieve communication via wireless. I has been working great. but all of a suddon when I go to print off my Mac Laptop, it pauses the printer and doesn't...


Cycle the power
If your printer was previously printing via wireless communication but can no longer do so, it may be necessary to cycle the power on the printer and Router / Access Point to restore communication. Before doing this, verify that the computer can communicate with the Router / Access Point.

On the printer, press the On button to power off the printer. Wait about 10 seconds, then press the On button to power the printer back on.

On the Router / Access Point, if there is a power button, press it to turn off the device, then press it again to re-power after waiting for about 10 seconds.* If there is no power button, you may have to disconnect the power cord / AC adapter. Check with the device's user manual.
* Wireless communication of all devices on the wireless network will be lost while you do this.

My computer doesn't recognize that my printer is hooked up every since I unplugged it and moved it.. I don't have the manual and I know that there is a certain order in which things are pluged in.


To avoid errors, install the HP PSC software before you connect the HP PSC to your computer. If an error message appears and you clicked Next or OK, do the following:
1 Press Esc on your keyboard to exit.
2 Turn off your HP PSC.
3 Disconnect the HP PSC from your computer (detach the USB cable).
4 Follow the software installation steps outlined in the Setup Poster that came with your HP PSC.

If you receive a message that you have a previously installed version, you will not be able to finish installing the HP PSC software. You will have to uninstall the previously installed version in order to install the HP PSC software.

If your computer is unable to communicate with your HP PSC
If communication cannot be established between your computer and HP PSC (for example, the HP PSC status icon has the yellow error triangle), try the same tasks outlined under If Microsoft’s New Hardware Found message does not appear on page 57 of the manual.

Here is a link to the manual for your printer...

Printer is not communicating with computer vista


The disk will not solve the problem you need the latest and updated .sys files to install the correct driver and that will communicate the printer with your pc. here is the link you can download the then install that will take care of the issue.

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 software asks for the printer connect it and continue
