I'm having a similar problem with Ventura, using MF244 printer. Downloaded the latest software and lost printer connection. During setup, error: "Unable to communicate with the printer at this time". It worked for printing and scanning prior to Ventura upgrade, and only stopped printing when I downloaded the new software. Thank you!
I would suggest, removing the printer instance, and uninstalling the "old" driver used with the previous OS version. Restart, then run the new installer following the prompts for configuration and detection.
