My HP Photosmart C309a series printer can't find the wireless router 3 feet above it.

My HP Photosmart C309a series printer can't find the wireless router 3 feet above it.  I ran the diagnostics and got "The wireless radio is not functioning" message.  In what device is the wireless radio located?  In the router? In the printer?  I reset the router, did the #6 with the printer, but I am still unable to connect my wireless Macbook to the printer.  My desktop Mac is connected to the printer with a cable and prints fine.  Is my router messed up or my printer?

Your printer's wireless radio (that it uses to communicate with the router's radio) has died.  This is how to contact HP support: www.hp.com/go/totalcare

Thank you so much!  At least now I know what piece of equipment it faulty.  Is it repairable or do I need a new printer?

Just call HP, they can walk you through the options based on what is wrong with your printer.
