Windows 7: Went from broadband to satellite, lost wireless printer

Went from broadband to satellite, lost wireless printer

We changed our provider today and are back with satellite instead of broadband. I have wireless for the computers but now I've lost my wireless printer. It's a Canon MP 560. I tried setting up the connection from the computer and from the printer.

Hi there, Welcome to Seven Forums.

Did you change any settings on your wireless since changing provider?
Have you checked settings on the printer?

It sounds like your wireless network settings have changed, and the printer needs to be updated accordingly. For what it's worth, anytime I set up a network printer, I give it a hardcoded, static IP address.
