HP Photosmart C4380 - Wireless - Quit Printing

I have a customer running Windows Vista on a Sony laptop.  They have a HP Photosmart C4380 printer that was working fine up until a couple of days ago; then it started giving an error on printing.  They have a Netgear WGR614v9 (not my choice) router.

When I do a network configuration on the printer, it shows no IP Address - I have tried to reset the modem/router but same thing.  I have seen other tips on the Net about setting it up as a regular printer and doing a bunch of things with the MAC Address but just thinking there is something else that could be done???

You may have to reinstall the printer as a network printer.
You can always check for printer problems by connecting it to one computer first to be sure it is working properly.

Was going to connect it to the computer direct and make sure that worked.  When I tried to install the printer; it didnt recognize it at all.

I have not installed HP, but I have installed both Lexmark and Brother wireless printers on my home network.

You must have the installation discs for a network installation. And, the installation is done with a USB connection to one of the computers in the network.

The printer does work if connected directly so going over there again to see if we can figure out what is going on....
