how do i connect my printer to my network? Macbook pro, HP photosmart 4780

Until I got a new router (yesterday) I was fine, but now I cannot print wirelessly, and cannot find the place to put my new network name/password.

You have to run the HP software again to re-connect your printer.  Look in the Hewlett-Packard folder for "Printer Setup and Software" and run it.

I am employed by HP

Re: how do i connect my printer to my network? Macbook pro, HP photosmart 4780

Hi.. I have the ultimate solution for this:

1- On your small printer screen, go to wireless settings, press on WSP - press "push button" 

2- Go to your wireless router panel - by using the IP address of the router (mine is 198.122.3.3), go to "Wireless" and press the WSP Button (two rounded arrows) 

another option:

1- On your small printer screen, go to wireless settings, press on WSP - press "Pin" 

2- Go to your wireless router panel, go to "Wireless" and pput the PIN number that you see on the small screen.
