    That is because you have to go back through the setup for the new printer. Set up in the printer menu the SSID & Passphrase for it to connect to the network. Then all computers should see it. You do not need it connected to any computer with the USB, after you set it up to be on your wireless network.

    First, Thanks for the response. The laptop and the computer show on the router. The printer shows properly in the selection to print. The settings I have made for the printer show as correct, as it does on the other computers. It still does not print. Don

    Wired or wireless printing? Connected to router using USB? Some variables here we need to know.

    Did you do as I stated, going back through uninstalling & installing the printer software, along with physically going into the menu on the printer through the printer buttons, to connect it to the WiFi network, by finding the SSID & entering Passphrase?

    You really do not have to install anything if you are just going to print. If you plan on scanning, you will have to install the HP software on all computers. Also if you are using any third party Internet Security software, it needs to be disabled, until you get the printer online.
