Network printer not printing

I have 2 laptops connected to a wireless HP printer. The printer suddenly won't print on either laptop. I rebooted the hub, reinstalled the driver and rebooted the computer and still nothing. This printer was set as the default on one laptop...it was working until I added it as the default printer to the other laptop. Now neither will print. ???

GFMakus, It looks to me that your wireless printer has changed the IP. I would make sure that the printer has picked up a static IP. Some wireless printer install packages go for the HP MAC address to install and then the IP for the printer can change and it doesn't make an difference.

Have you printed a system configuration sheet on the printer to see how it is set?

Thanks, and Happy Birthday! I actually changed the default printer on one of the laptops, and now the printer is working off of that laptop. ??? DA
