How to restore a wireless printer to "online" state

Last Modified: 2013-12-27
Somehow while I was away, my wireless printer (HP 4500) went "offline" and I cannot find any link to get it back "online".  I have looked in Control Panel/Printers/Properties. I have looked in MS WORD/Print/Properties. Inside the program print function/find printer link  I've seen "Active Directory Domain Services" is not available.??? but don't know what to do with that info. The wireless transmitter light at the printer faceplate is on.  If I connect the printer to a USB  port, it works fine.
Help.  My wife in the office next door needs to use the printer,
