officejet 6600 unable to connect to wireless network - wizard indicates it may be a MAC address filtering issue (diagnostics results show "No Filtering -------- FAIL"), but I've checked my verizon routers webpage and MAC authentication is disabled. I've tried moving the printer closer to the router to ensure that it isn't a signal strength problem - no change. Is there any other reason the printer might not connect to the network?

Thanks for the reply. I'd found that posting you sent the link to - http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02986958
My 6600 isn't even getting an IP (it indicates "IP: No Link"), so I can't follow the directions from that posting.
I've spent an hour on the phone with a nice HP rep who indicated that I needed to speak with my Verizon tech support. Verizon tried a couple of things (although they said it was not their responsibility), but with no success.
I think this printer is going back to the store, and I'll get a Canon.

Have you tried to reinstall the printer from scratch? You need to verify the printer is connected to your router's SSID with a valid IP address.
