Printer not connected?

Photosmart 5510 series. (7708A4)

Mac OSX 10.7.2


This printer which we purchased in January was working perfectly until last week.

(Incidentally last week was the one of the solar storms).  It now keeps dropping its wireless connection and we are told that the "printer is not connected".  I have reset it using USB and have had to resort to turning it off and back on again (when it works) every time that we leave it alone for five minutes-  any ideas?

Re: Printer not connected?

My printer kept saying that it was not ready so I deleted it and installed it again.  Now it says ready but when I go to print something it says error and not connected.  Now what do I do.
