Really annoying printer problem

  1. Hey everyone,

    In my office at work I have a Xerox WorkCentre M128.
    Now, it's connected to the network via a standard RJ45 connection - no problems there.
    Everyone else in the office can see and print to it fine, but every day, without fail, I'll turn my computer on and that printer will be shown as offline.
    If I try to connect to it it just says "Operation could not be completed".
    If I try to print to it it hangs for a good 5 minutes or more, and I have to confirm that I'll wait for it 3 times, every time, before it'll print.
    So, if I just delete and reinstall it it works until the next time I restart the machine!
    This is driving me nuts, anyone have any ideas?
