    Welcome aboard :)

    I've got a network printer working fine with Windows 8 - I just used the Windows 7 drivers and it worked just as before :). Did you install the drivers manually via device manager (as in by using the .INF), or did you run specific Lexmark packaged driver software? You may have better luck by doing it manually.

    Where can you get the .INF? I can't seem to find it. I used the packaged driver software.

    I've just downloaded the driver (LEXMARK_Pro900_wcr_64_en.exe) to do a test. If you download this driver and install WinRAR (www.rarlabs.com), you should be able to right click the package and extract the contents to a folder.

    You can then point Windows 8 to this folder (using a manual driver install) and it will search for the INF. I've just done a test and it finds it fine :).
