My HP Photosmart 6520...

My HP Photosmart 6520 is offline. How do I get it back online

Technician's Assistant: How are you connecting to your HP printer: wirelessly or by USB?

Wireless

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update the printer driver software?

I don't think I've ever done that

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

Printer is connected to a MacBook Air. We just installed a new modem, and right after that, the printer stopped working. Don't know if that is a coincidence

Hi ,
My name is***** am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.
I will be glad to assist you with this.
My goal is to give you the best experience possible!
The HP will need to be reconnected to the new modem with the new modems wifi network name and password.
It will be the same process as when you first installed the printer. Do you have a USB printer cable that you can use to temporarily connect the printer to your MacBook?
