We have had multiple instances around my place of employment where the Dell 1710n printers just hang and they have to be restarted. We're having a difficult time troubleshooting the issue. They are connected to the network and none have a USB connection to them.
Try using the Lexmark Print Server instead of the generic print server (if you use a Windows Server to share the printers). Also a new driver V2.0 was just released. Additionaly you can try to set 100 full duplex, but this is complex and has to be done at the printer, pressing a serie of buttons.
These printers are crap, we have constant problems with them.

To find your MAC address on the config page go to Standard Network Card then UAA (MSB, Canonical): you should have one or two sets of characters. the second set should be the MAC address to the printer. Hope this helps
This could have multiple causes, and the fix can be dependent on your operating system. Please go to the Dell troubleshooting site by clicking here and attempt to work through the troubleshooter. If you are not successful, try turning the printer off and unplugging it for a few moments, then plug it back in and restart.
