This si a port error and will fix after re-installation of the operating system ..and another issue is if you have the habit to unplug it ..and plug it only when you use it ...it may install it each time cause it has a changeable port id or something like this ..and it sees it like a different one ..
my solution is to remove any installations from the device manager ..and reset the printer to be sure it do not has something that cause this on a network setting ..and reinstall it with the original driver (not updates) from the disk ..or manufacturer driver ..and also check the cables to be well plugged in ports so that will not be a case of bad contacts and forcing it to reinstall each time it detects it plugged again
