Laser jet pro MFP M125nw stuck initializing AFTER connecting to WiFi

HP Recommended
Laser jet pro MFP M125nw
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Laser jet pro MFP M125nw locks up after connecting to my wifi.

If I do a system reset on the printer I can use it via the USB connection and make copies.

Once connected to my wifi the printer freezes in the "initializing" mode.

I am able to navigate to the printer using the IP address and see that it is connected but cannot print or make copies etc.

(it will print a configuration report from here after about a 15minute delay)

I updated the firmware to most current, reset NVRAM, cold and hot resets on the printer with the same result.

Uninstalled and reinstalled printer drivers as well.

My wifi router is an Arris surfboard SBG7600AC2

(The printer worked fine with my older netgear router - which I no longer have)
