What would cause a lexmark pro205 wireless printer, to only print 5 items, before it needs to be manually unplugged and restarted, before it will print again? The printer will print on average, 5 things, then not print. I will have to unplug it and replug it, let it boot up and continue printing. Windows 10 is the OS.
This only happens with the Asus laptop but not the Lenovo laptop. Yes, all drivers up to date.

All wireless settings
Seen this before, both times driver related, once used older driver, once had to wait for newer driver.
Both of these and ALL wireless printing issues solved easily and permanently using a wired connection.
I have two wireless printers, Epson WF-2760 and a Epson Artisan 625
My wireless laptops are connected to my wireless router and that is directly wired to the printers with a CAT 5E cable. Never any dropouts or problems.
My other PCs are wired to the router, switches and then to the printer. Going wireless directly to several wireless printers in the past has been problematic at times.
So my advice, don't go wireless to the printer directly if you can avoid it.
Beyond that, if you have to go wireless directly, completely reset the printers wireless settings along with using the newest or 'best' drivers with your laptop.
I do this with a temporary CAT cable as setting up wireless over a wireless connection has caused problems for me.
Or you can do this with the printers info panel, if it displays all the needed settings.
Use a set address for the printer, not DHCP assigned address to help keep the printer from switching addresses.
This has always worked reliably for me.
There is a setting somtimes in the printer that allows bi-directional communication. If not checked causes communications to work incorrectly with this symptom as well as not clearing from queue, etc
