    Sas, if you resort the the gun safe option, save the old printer. After you purchase its replacement, take the new printer to the back yard and show it the blown up carcass of it’s predecessor. Make sure it understands the consequences of misbehavior.

    My plan is different, . . .

    When they get to where I cannot make em work like they used to or like I want em to, . . . I just go to the local gizmo shop and buy a new one.

    The old one goes up into the attic, . . . to gather dust forever, . . . no cables, no electricity, and not near each other.

    I am not sure, . . . but I believe there is still a wireless connection between those in isolation and those in operation, . . . cause it seems that each generation of operation seems to have learned that they can get banished, . . . so they seem to try harder.

    Works for me anyway, . . . so that's it, . . . you got my story, . . . and I'm sticking with it, . . . will even print it if I have to.

    May God bless,
    Dwight
    If you can breathe, . . . thank God.

    If you can read, . . . thank a teacher.

    If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a veteran.

    Maybe a dumb question that you’ve already addressed.

    My printer is also wireless. We can print from our laptops wirelessly but the printer itself is plugged into the router.

    Try plugging the printer directly into the router and then adding it via windows (what ever version you have). Also if it’s a “older” printer you may be see it whe adding the printer. There is an option for that and I think it’s actually, “add and older printer”.

    Good luck!!!!

    If all else fails.. drop kick it. Shooting it too loud in the house. But if you do shoot it.. be safe and use ear and eye protection.

    The question I have to ask is... what changed during the move?
    Laptop settings?
    Printer settings?
    Router or its settings? (new ISP perhaps, thus potentially new router)

    Hopefully you've got this figured out by now, but whenever I diagnose tech issues, this is where I always start. *Something* is normally different, but forgotten.

    There is a new router BUT this issue started right before we moved it. Our initial thought was the little one and her friends happened by it and pressed a bunch of buttons. HN cant find the manual so I might have to see if I can DL it from the HP site.

    Clarifying question....
    This issue with the printer not being found on the network happened BEFORE the move, but with the new router, AFTER having worked with the new router?
    If I understand correctly, the move itself had nothing to do with the issue springing up, right?
