My 2540 HP printer is always offline

I haves recently purchased a 2540 printer and installed it on three home laptops. It is working well with the laptops that have Windows 7. However when I am trying to print with my laptop that has Windows 8, it always shows that the printer is offline but it isn't. Very frustrating.

 

Read previous solutions about manually changing the IP adress tried that and not sure if I did the right thing but this didn't work. I have also rebooted the router. I unistalled and reinstalled the HP drivers, this worked for a month and I now have the same problem: priner offline.  Any solutions?

Re: My 2540 HP printer is always offline

I have the same problem.  The only thing that works for me is to unplug the printer for a few seconds, plug it back in.  It usually works for a day at a time.  Very annoying.
