hp officejet 4500 series wireless won't connect to my laptop only

Bought the 4500. Installed the software on my two kids laptops.  Wireless works great on both of their computers.  Loaded the exact same thing on my laptop...it will not connect.  It goes all the way through the wizard, recognizes the printer and the wireless network, but says I should check firewall.  Checked firewall, it says it is letting all HP software through.  Help.

After seeing several people with the same problem with the HP Officejet 4500 dropping the wireless connection and HP tech support offering no successful assistance, I returned the printer and bought a Canon Pixma MP495 and was connected wirelessly and printing in under 15 minutes.

Use a USB cord to connect my wireless to my laptop.  Has been working fine.  Took my laptop on vacation with me and now the printer won't work.
