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...
