Hello. Here is my setup. I have a home network consisting of a desktop PC (Windows XP), three wireless laptops (two XP & one Vista), an HP C7250 wireless printer, and an AT&T 2Wire DSL wireless router. All computers connect to the Internet fine. The desktop computer is connected to the C7250 using a USB cable and prints fine. But, now I can't print from the laptops wirelessly. However, for some reason, while trying to enable wireless printing on one of my laptops, I screwed up everything else. Not sure what I did.
Here is my current status:
The HP Network Configuration Page shows the that the printer is offline and has no IP address. The Wireless Network Test Report shows that the Radio is ON, Radio is working, Ethernet Cable is NOT plugged in, and the SSID is NOT FOUND (fails).
Bottom line: My network is NOT seeing the printer. What is wrong? HP Chat was not able to solve my problem.

please run the wireless setup wizard again
print the network configuration page
take note of the printer ip address
tried to ping the ip address
if you have 4 reply then you are ok
make sure you have the exact ip address with the printer driver

I also have been having problems with a customer 7250 connecting wirelessly to the router. The printer does pick up the router and connects to it, but the computer is having trouble finding the printer on the router. I tried to ping it but nothing. Also, I noticed that in the propeties of the printer, under "location" it say's "IP=192.168.1.1, host=4323421354. Wierd yes I know. Is that normal?

Did the C7250 ever work or did it just stop working wirelessly?
What kind of wireless-router do you have?
BTW -- the IP address listed seems strange. Please reinstall the SW for the printer. If this gets the printer working again, then please the set the current printer's IP address as static. You can do this from the printer's front panel under the Advanced Settings in the Network menu.,
