Re: How to connect wireless printer after changing modem/router

It would help to know what operating system and router.  Nevertheless, let's try this:


If Windows, go to Control Panel > Printers and delete all instances of thsi printer.

 

Next, go to Start > All Programs > HP > [your printer model] > Add a Device.  Follow the instructions.  Make sure a USB cable is NOT connected when you start this process.  The software will ask you to connect a USB cable during the re-installation.

[ Edited ]

How about on a Mac computer with a new Verizon 'D-Link' router? I've tried for a while now, after installing the software CD again and trying to run the install steps, but it can never find my device: HP Photosmart C4780. I have the USB cord but it still does not connect. 

 

Thanks

Re: How to connect wireless printer after changing modem/router

Before you start, restart your router by pulling its power plug momentarily.  Also, on the front of the printer go to Setup [Scan] > Wireless > Restore Defaults.

 

Next do not use the CD (never use them if you can help it), download and install the latest software for your printer from the "Support & Drivers" link at the top of this page.

 

Make sure the printer is NOT connected by USB when you start this process.  Eventually the software will ask you to plug in a USB cable temporarily.  Do not do so until the software asks you to do so.

Re: How to connect wireless printer after changing modem/router

I did all that you told me, and even so, when I finally do get to the step in the installing software where I am prompted to find the device I want, and to then plug in the USB, it still does not find the device. Screen shot 2013-07-03 at 8.24.19 PM.pngScreen shot 2013-07-03 at 8.25.40 PM.png

Re: How to connect wireless printer after changing modem/router

I would guess that your new router does not support Bonjour, which your Mac needs to install and use the printer.  Have you contacted Verizon about it?
