We have an HP PHotosmart Plus B209a-m All-in-One. We have a Linksys wireless G2.4 router. We had been connecting to the printer with no problem until we added a WPA passcode so that it will no longer be an open network. Now we cannot connect to the router through our printer wirelessly. We get the following diagnostic summary:
Wireless on - PASS
Wireless working - PASS
Network Name (SSID) Found - FAIL
Our assumption was that when we follow the directions and hit the PUSH button on the printer we should have pushed the Cisco button on the router; but the printer times out without establishing a connection. The light on the router just flashes very quickly, but no connection.

Do not use the pushbutton. Connect to the the router manually following the instructions provided. Use WPA2-AES encryption in the router.

I used to work for HP but I saw the light and retired!
