How to Add Lexmark Wireless Printer to MAC?

I have a Lexmark laser wireless printer at home cum office for over a little of 6 months. I did not have any technical issues with it until now. I use it for my office works which requires the printing of lots of paper, and my computer was Windows 7. Due to some security and office policy I had to change to Mac but the problem is my printer would not connect to Mac at any cost. i really find it amazing since it was working perfectly fine with the Windows PC for last 6 months. Does anyone here have any knowledge on how to resolve the issue?
