Deskjet 6840 - How do I connect to existing house wifi network?

I would like to connect my Deskjet 6840 to my home wireless network.  I recently resurrected my 6840 when another printer failed to work.  In moving, I lost documentation and manual for this printer.  Is there a resource I could use for step by step information?

 

Thank you!

Here are all the resources you need in one tidy spot.

 

I'll offer my advice:  If you can connect to your wireless network (router) by Ethernet cable, it will be easier and more reliable. 

 

If this is not possible or you would rather have the printer remotely located from the router, wireless will work but requires a bit more setup and can be subject to the usual wireless signal interferences, etc.
