Just got a new wi-fi network in the house, and my Epson

Customer Question

Just got a new wi-fi network in the house, and my Epson xp-800 will not work, and I can't seem to find that network in the printer. It doesn't even work if I plug in a direct cable to my laptop.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Epson is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: not very old .. perhaps a year or so.. Epson XP-800 series. diagnosis says connection disconnecter
JA: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?
Customer: MacBook Pro 10.11.4
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: a few days... just had a new cable company come in to set up another tv, and they gave me a new modem, eliminated the old router, and connected me to new network
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Printer Technician should know?
Customer: every other device in the house has logged on to the new network .. just the printer doesn't.
