Problem setting up wireless HP laserjet 1022nw printer

I have a HP laserjet 1022nw printer that I have had for a while at home and am having a problem setting it up.  I am using WinXP.  I've tried to follow the manual, but it still is not being recognized and I can't print to it.  I tried setting it up connected to my PC, then when it was connected to the router, and I've tried deleting the printer and starting over, but have the same problem.  (I lost the CD it came with, but have downloaded the drivers.)  I must be doing something wrong.  Can you tell me what I need to do to fix this or start over - what exactly are the correct steps?  Thanks.

No, that doesn't help me at all.  It's also not on a LAN, just 1 PC to the printer at home via wireless.

I have a SBC/ATT Ewire HomePort 1000HG DSL modem/router.  I also have an HP Photosmart C72890 that works fine connected wireless.

Why would I need an additional Wireless Printing Upgrade Kit?  This printer has wireless built in.  It didn't work when it was connected to the PC or the router during setup.

please don't use many "why" questions - in most cases they can't be answered, but  :
i did not say to use the kit, i said to use the method.

OK I'll try the method.  I assumed it required the wireless printing upgrade kit and wouldn't work without it.

It doesn't work, so I guess it needs the wireless printing upgrade kit after all.  Thanks for your help.
