Printer showing up as WAP

See attached image.

How would you go about finding out what and where this "HP Print 41 Laserjet 200" is and how to remove it?

There isnt such a machine in the building.

All other WAPS have been removed except for the two others showing.

Shared on a client machine somehow?

Thanks for any help you can give!

The signal is weak - maybe a neighbor.
Working on the signal strength...download INSSIDER - http://www.metageek.net/products/inssider/

Follow the strength...closer you get the stronger the signal(as Johnny mentioned its only showing 2 bars currently - so might not be in your building at all)

That's how I'd start

Other ways - can you connect to it? Or is it secured? If you can connect to it, on some wifi client software it shows the 'active ap' and its ip address - so from there you can determine if its on your network at all...
