I have been using my laptop and wireless printer for quite awhile.  All of a sudden I can't print, it keeps showing printer offline.  I can't figure out how to get it online.  Any help?

Please read this post  then provide some details.  What printer model? What operating system? How is the printer connected - USB, wired LAN, Wireless LAN, bluetooth?

Previous suggested tool (http://www.hp.com/go/tools) showed everything was ok (checked) but my printer still showed offline.  I finally found below web site, although not specific to my HP P2015dn, step 8 (Stop then Start print Queue) resolved the problem.

My symptom: both HP printers suddenly stopped working from my DESKTOP & showed as either OFFLINE or error message.  Both printers cable connected to Linksys router.  However, throughout problem, my LAPTOP could print successfully to both printers.

Re: my wireless printer shows offline printing...how do i get it online?

My HP OJ Pro 8500 A910 sometimes shows off-line and won't let me print.  How do I fix this?  I have a work PC, and sometimes am on a VPN, and sometimes not.  It has worked for in both modes in the past, but wouldn't last night.
