My printer stopped printing from my Mac. It works fine on my Windows PC.

Office Jet 6700
macOS 10.14 Mojave

My printer just stopped printing from my Macbook.  It works fine from my Windows PC.  The printer utility sees the printer and says it's online and I can even print test pages and configurations, but when I try to print a document, the print queue says that the printer is disconnected or no longer exists.


I spent over an hour on the phone with Apple Care and we reset the printer system and reinstalled the software and other stuff.  We were able to print a document from the Mac over Ethernet, so it's something to do with WiFi.  


As I said, it worked for years and just stopped working.  I suspect an automatic update, but I'm also suspicious of the latest driver.  I also did update the printer firmware.

I know it's an old printer, but it's served me well.
