I have the hp photosmart wireless b109n-z printer. A few weeks ago, the wireless connection suddenly stopped working in the room where the printer is always used. It is not the same area as where the wireless router is.
The wireless was working fine since I purchased the printer (June 2010) and suddenly now it is unable topickup the wireless signal. I know it is not the printer wireless radio that is the problem, because I have moved the printer near the router and it is working fine.
I'm wondering why would it stop working in the location I use it, when up to now it has been fine.
Would anyone know a way to fix the problem, so I could print wirelessly again from where I would like the printer to be, as using the USB cord is annoying

Lots of things could have changed. Your neighbor may have a new router that is set to the same channel as yours and is interfering. There could be a new cordless phone installed nearby that is interfering.
I recommend getting into your router settings and change the channel to 1 or 11. When you are done, print a Wireless Network Test from the front of the printer and see what its signal strength is.
