Office Jet 8610 Printer unable to recognize my Wifi Network

Office Jet 8610 Pro
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

My Office Jet 8610 Pro printer has been working flawlessly for me.  One evening I was able to print using my Wifi and the next day I couldn’t. The blue light on the printer was blinking and when I went into the network settings, I did not see my Wifi network listed. I tried to add it but wasn’t able to.

I restored the settings, I unplugged my router, printer and laptop and plugged them back in as advised in the manual. All other devices are connected to wifi with no issue. My laptop shows a connection to the printer.

The wireless network test page says:

“Your HP printer is unable to connect to your wireless router”


Wireless On.   PASS

Wireless working.    PASS

Signal quality.           Not Run



Connected.        Not run

Network name   FAIL

all Settings   Not run


I have also tried to connect my laptop to the printer with a cable and it won’t print that way either.


Thanks for your help!
