Wireless Printer

I bought a new router over the weekend. I got my laptops, desktop and tablet connected but cannot figure out how to join the printer to the network via the new router.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Wireless printer? or standard network printer? What model of Printer? Have you tried installing it via the Installation CD? If its a wireless printer usually you have to configure it via USB before you can use it on the network.

Usually you have to go into the menu on the printer (there is usually a wireless button) and it will look for the SSID and ask for the security key (if there is one).

It's an HP 4500 wireless printer. I thought I could "find" it somewhere on the network and join it.

If you don't have an installation CD, you can download from
