Hello TimC46,

 

I'm not sure what printer you are using as the troubleshooting steps may vary depending on the model.

 

However, there is a forum post thread here that may have some tips that may help resolve your issue.

I ran the Wireless Set up wizard and after several tries, the Printer accepted the password and I could print.  A short time later, the printer was no longer on line.  When I ran the Wireless Network Test report it stated the passphrase no longer matched.  I have a Gateway PC using Windows Vista and the router is still functioning.  This has been going on for several months.  In the past I merely rebooted the Photosmart Plus Printer and that solved the problem. I bought the printer about 10 months ago and it worked fine for about 4-5 months then started having these passphrase issues.  Any suggestions or questions gladly accepted.

Hello TimC46

 

Please follow the How do I find my Model Number? article and please provide your printer model. Several printers are labled Photosmart Plus. Has your modem been updated or replaced at all? You may also want to try running the HP Print and Scan Doctor. http://www.hp.com/go/tools

Don't forgot to say thanks by giving "Kudos" to those that help solve your problems.

When a solution is found please mark the post that solves your issue.
