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.

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.

Plug it in with USB Cable (Usually Included) Run the Installation CD. There is an option on it to set it up on Wireless Network, you need to Select your SSID and enter in your Password.
If you don't have an installation CD, you can download from
