    Printer Communication Failure over Wireless Network

    Running Windows Vista Business 32 on a new Dell Latitude D820, network is
    structured around a Linksys WRT54G wireless router, Lexmark X9350 All-in-one
    (802.11G wireless communication).

    I've been able to get the printer/scanner working, but more often than not I
    get a alert window pop up stating "Printer Communication Stopped and the
    program was shut down". I shut down the laptop, cycle power on the Lexmark
    (and load factory defaults) and also cycle power on the wireless router.
    Sometimes this will get the printer communicating with the network and
    sometimes it does not. The technical support at lexmark is pathetic. They
    tell me it's my firewall settings. Why would the printer communicate and
    then mysteriously stop talking to the laptop. I've checked the communication
    between the printer and the wireless router after I get the communication
    failure poop up and it's still connected. Including the laptop there are two
    PC's on the network that never loose communications with the wireless router.
    So it looks like it maybe a OS or driver issue. Any suggestions are greatly
    appreciated.

    God Yukon I am haveing the same issue...Running Vista Home on Toshiba laptop,
    network router is the Same Linksys Wrt54g with boost..Lexmark X8350 all in
    one and the Same 802.1.1G communication. I can file share now after I
    Downloaded Network Magic...but still can not share the Printer form the
    Laptop.

    I have spent a month in this form trying everything suggested and nothing
    works...now the Kicker.

    Got the Geek Squad out to make it work...Guess what...Thats right they could
    not either...after 2 hrs trying to figure it out
