Mediacom replaced modem and external router with Hitron, now Deskjet 3050 can't connect via wireless

Deskjet 3050 610a

Tried reinstalling from two different computers, both get to the connecting printer to wireless network then eventually error out:  Your printer failed to join the wireless network.  Have rebooted the modem/router and printer, still just get blue light flashing on the wireless indicator on the printer.


Used to have the printer hooked up via an Amped wireless, but that started having problems so Mediacom (Internet/cable provider) replaced the modem with a Hitron 2559 that has a built-in wireless router.  They set the SSID and password the same as my old one.  Most devices connected normally, some needed the network to be reset or rediscovered.  This printer just won't connect to the wireless network.  BTW, they are sitting physically right next to each other.


I contacted Mediacom to see if there was some wireless setting in the router preventing the printer from connecting (I no longer have access to an Admin screen with this modem), but they weren't aware of any outstanding issues.


Any help would be appreciated!
