Why isn't my HP Officejet J4680 not connecting to wireless?

My operating system is Windows Vista. The printer was connecting to wireless before. I cannot figure what happened. I have tried everything several times. HELPPPP!!

From the front of the printer print a Wireless Network Test (Network menu).  Does it show as being connected to your network?

Don't know about that guy, but I'm having the same problem...only its only happening on one of my computers(predictably the one I need to connect to the printer the most for fax storage).

 

Did the network test page, and the printer is definitely connected to the network, passes on all fields with an excellent signal strength.  The computer, during the setup detects the printer, but will not connect to it.

I am struggling with a similar problem. My printer recognizes the network (using set up wizard) but keeps giving an "incorrect passphrase" message when I enter the correct passphrase set up for the router. I have tried many many times and it will not work.  Any suggestions ?

Sure, what router?  What kind of encryption (WEP, WPA, etc)?
