Cannot Connect Officejet 8030 to WiFi After Restore Network Settings

Officejet Pro 8030
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I wanted to switch which wifi connection my Officejet Pro 8030 was connected to, and clicked "Restore Network Settings" on accident. Now it's not detecting wifi at all and instead only seeking Ethernet. How do I reconnect my printer to my computer? Please help!
