Yes, when the printer is connected to the same network as that of the router, changing the password / router will affect the printer wireless.

 

Printer Website Support Driver Page:

HP Deskjet 2540 All-in-One Printer series

 

 

 

First, take a look at this solution:

HP Wireless Printer Center – Reconfigure / Replacing your wireless router

 

AND / OR

 

If you wish to do so (and it may be easier or even necessary), reinstall the Full Feature Software for the printer.  The installation process will help find and connect the printer to your new network.

 

 

  • Download and Save a copy of the Full Feature Software   DJ2540_188.exe  (102.0 MB)

 

  • Uninstall existing printer software from Control Panel > icon view > Programs and Features
  • Restart the computer and log in
  • Navigate to the Downloads folder > Double-click on the file to start the installation
  • Follow the instructions
  • When the installation is complete, Restart the computer and log in

Scroll down on the Driver's page to find helpful videos to assist with the setup / installation.
