Lexmark E360dn Network Setup

I have a Lexmark E360dn that I'm trying to set up on my Windows network. I have obtained an IP address from our network admins for the printer. I go in and set the printer's IP through the printer's network menu, and it seems to take. I've power cycled the printer several times and it retains the IP that I gave it.

However, when I install the printer on our Windows 7 laptops, the laptops lose the printer whenever it's turned off. The printer remains visible in the Printers and Devices menu, and will even respond to the printer being turned off and on, showing "offline" and "ready" accordingly. When I try to print, though, the document just sits there in the queue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Spacer

Got it. The printer wasn't connecting when I used the automatic Windows driver installation (possibly timing out). I installed the drivers myself, then added the printer, and everything is fine.
