What model HP printer is itThey usually like to hook up to the wifi by pushing the wps button on the router as you go through the wifi setup on the printer If you give me the model number I can get you more detailed instructions but there is a WiFi setup on the printer menu Once that is complete you have to reinstall the printer on the computerFirst delete the non working printer in the devices and printers folderThen click the add printer button It should find it on the network and you can just click next next next
