HP Photosmart C4580 cannot connect to through wireless

We have the HP Photosmart C4580 and recently changed from  AT&T to Comcast for internet. When we got the new internet provider the printer cannot connect anymore. How can I program the printer to detect the new connection. We use cable internet and also use a wireless router. The computer the printer is next to is hooked up to the internet through the modem so the router is not needed for this particular computer.

I am confused about your setup.  If the router is not used for the computer, how will the printer communicate with it?  How is the computer connected to the Internet?

Download and install the latest software for your printer from the "Support & Drivers" link at the top of this page.
