Go to Start > All Programs > HP > [your printer model] > Printer Setup & Software.

 

Run that program to re-connect your printer to your new router.  You will have to use a USB cord temporarily during the process.  The software will tell you when.

2 choices:

 

1. Borrow a USB cable.

2. Use WPS if your router supports it.

 

Let me know which way you want to go and I can help.

Yes, if your router supports WPS.  What brand/model router do you have?
