My printer won't connect to my router. The router has access control on and I have added the printer's mac address to it, yet it still is not connecting. I haven't actually told the printer to connect to the router, but I don't actually know how...

The wireless configuration have to be performed by using the software:
If you didn't installed the software yet, follow the installation and select wireless connection.
you will be prompted to temporary plug the USB in order to connect the printer.
If the software allready installed, enter Start > Programs > HP HP Deskjet 3050A Series.
There you will see an option named as reconfigure software / reconfigure wireless connection..
Follow the installation and you will be guided to temporary connect the USB in order to connect the printer.

I have installed the software and it is just frozen on "Checking network environment". The green bar is all the way across.
The frustrating thing is that it has worked fine on both my mum's laptop and my dad's laptop but it's not working on mine, it's just frozen as I said before.

My printer was working fine until a few days ago. Now I get the message that the printer is offline, not connected to wireless I have tried to follow your earlier advice, but that seems to be for Windows 7. What should I do in Windows 8 to reconnect to the wireless

I understand you're unable connect your Deskjet 3050A because the installation keeps hanging on "Checking Network Environment". I will do my best to assist you!
Follow this entire HP document on The Network Installation Hangs on the 'Checking Network Environment' Screen. If you're getting a printer offline message, then please follow this HP document on 'Printer is offline' Message Displays on the Computer and the Printer Will Not Print: Windows 8.
Please post your results, as I will be looking forward to hearing from you. Have a great night!
