My HP  wireless printer and acer laptop no longer are connected, so I can't print. Since I am a 73 yr. old computer illiterate woman, I need simple instructions. I did input what I thought was my NetGear password into the printer, but it didn't solve anything. (The first connection was done 2 months ago by an IT person when I first purchased the router. Cost me $95).

Connected how? Wifi or USB?

 

What is this HP printer?

 

The usual way to fix wifi printers is to find the printer maker's utility, the software that runs on your operating system. Then use that to connect the printer to the wifi.

 

The router just broadcasts wifi. It is then down to the printer to play ball. There isn't much that you can do on a router, beyond fixing it to a particular IP address, that affects what the printer gets up to.

 

Where possible, using the WPS feature can simplify things.

Just another user.
