Previously printer to wireless network worked fine; now won't connect

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HP Office Jet Pro 6968 worked perfectly in connecting to my ATT WIFI Wireless service until just a week ago. Nothing was changed from before, it just won't connect. Have flashing blue light; found ATT no longer listed on printer (though neighboring carriers are listed). Upon re-entering ATT info., it tries to connect but says unable. I've gone through all the virtual helps HP offers and non have helped. At a loss as to next step.

@Joan1946 Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that you are unable to connect the printer wirelessly


Do not worry. I will try to fix the issue.


1. Make sure the printer is not connected to the network through an Ethernet cable
Wireless does not work if the printer is connected to the network through an Ethernet cable. Disconnect the
Ethernet cable from the printer.

2. Make sure the wireless light is turned on
If the blue light on the printer control panel is not lit, wireless might be turned off. To turn on wireless, touch
or swipe down the tab at the top of a screen to open the Dashboard, and then touch (Wireless), touch
(Settings). Touch Wireless Settings, and then touch Wireless to turn it on.
If the blue wireless light is blinking, it means the printer is not connected to a network. Use the Wireless Setup
Wizard available from the printer control panel to make a wireless connection. Touch or swipe down the tab at
the top of a screen to open the Dashboard, and then touch (Wireless), touch (Settings). Touch Wireless
Settings, touch Wireless Setup Wizard, and then follow the onscreen instructions.

3. Make sure the computer or the mobile device is connected to the wireless network
Make sure your computer or mobile device is connected to your wireless network. If you cannot connect the
computer to the network, contact the person who set up your network or the router manufacturer; there might
be a hardware issue with the router or computer.

4. Restart components of the wireless network
Turn off the router and the printer, and then turn them back on in this order: router first and then printer.
Sometimes, turning off devices and then turning them back on helps resolve network communication issues.
If you still cannot connect, turn off the router, the printer, and the computer, and then turn them back on in this
order: router first, then printer, and then computer
