When I got a new router from Verizon, the Officejet 6100 was no longer visible on the network -- although the printer claimed (when I printed the wireless test page) that it was connected to that network.
Eventually I reset the printer's network settings. Big mistake. Now the printer says it's offline. And the blue "wireless" light just flashes (for which there is no explanation in the manual).
Isn't this thing supposed to have a default built-in wireless presence that I can connect to somehow?
I can print with a direct USB connection, and I suppose with this connection I could set up wireless printing if I had the HP Utility software that the manual tells me to run. But that doesn't appear to be available anywhere online from HP.
So my request is:
* Anybody have HP Utility for MacOS (10.12 Sierra)?
* Is there some other way to set up wireless printing? [Never again will I buy a printer without a control panel!]
