Officejet 8630 - Lost Printer Assistant

Officejet 8630
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



I am having trouble with my Officejet 8630 not seeing the network.  It is connected via ethernet cable.  It was working, but no no matter what I have tried, it doesn't work.  I have deleted the printer and tried to reinstall and although it appears as an option with the network IP showing, it the PC and printer wont connect.  I have tried to reset the printer to factory defaults, rebooted the PC, etc.  Nothing seems to work.  Any help of suggestions are much appreciated.
