New router may have different security settings, you may need redo the printer wireless setup.

Also, the printer's wireless is G (802.11g), so make sure the router is set up to support G, not N only.

Do I need the printer cable for this or can I use an Ethernet cable?

Your printer do support LAN (ethernet), you can connect using one of the LAN port on the router.
