HP 6500 printer goes offline after switched network security from WEP to WPA

HP Officejet 6500 wireless w/duplex stays offline unless power cycled prior to print command.  I recently switched from WEP to WPA security on my router.  I was previously having no problems with WEP printing from any comp. on wireless network.  When switched to WPA the printer is offline and doesnt come online unless I actively power cycle the printer and uncheck the PRINT OFFLINE box under printer properties.  I have searched this forum for a solution but only got the uncheck PRINT OFFLINE help.  I dont want to do this everytime someone wants to print and I'd rather not return to a lower security feature, i.e WEP.  Using Win 7, Mac OS and Win XP.  Router is Belkin pre-N approx 4 yrs old.  Any assistance appreciated.  Thanks.
