printer stopped printing wirelessly. Drivers not found error.

OfficeJet 3830
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

HP OfficeJet 3830 series EC7041 stopped printing wirelessly after the last web services update.  Uninstalled and reinstalled printer and drivers via HP Smart Print and via MS Office Add Printer.  Rebooted after each, still not connecting.  My HP Network Configuration Page shows printer connected to SSID NETGEAR54 but my laptop shows NETGEAR54-5G (which it always has), but I cannot connect to that network manually via my printer settings.  Is this the issue?

Welcome to HP support community.

 

Use HP Print and Scan Doctor to check connectivity

Download HP Print and Scan Doctor.

  1. Run HPPSdr.exe from the download location on your computer.

  2. Once HP Print and Scan Doctor opens, click Start, and then select your printer.

    • If your printer in not in the list, turn it off and on, and then click Retry.

    • If there is a connection problem, follow the instructions in HP Print and Scan Doctor.

  3. If a screen prompts you to turn on printer updates, click Yes.

  4. If a screen prompts you to make your printer the default printer, click Yes.

  5. Try to print.

Assign manual IP address and that should fix the issue.

To identify which IP address is currently assigned to the printer, do the following:

  • From the Home screen, touch (Wireless) and then touch (Setup). 2. Touch Print Reports, and then touch Network configuration Page or Wireless Test Report

Setting a Static IP Address

Once you know your printer’s IP address, entering it is pretty easy. Here’s what you do:

HP Printer Static IP Address

  1. Run your Web browser.
  2. In the Web browser’s address bar, type the IP address of your printer and press Enter. Assuming you entered the right address, the HP printer control panel should appear.
  3. Click the Networking tab.
  4. Under Connections, click Wired.
  5. Under IP Address Configuration, click Manual IP.
  6. Enter the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway in the appropriate boxes.
  7. Click Apply.
