my hp photo smart premium c309g all in one printer disconnected from the network the other day.
all attempts to reconnect it have failed and I'm wondering what the issue could be and how to fix it.
The wifi led is on.
The wifi icon on the printer's touchscreen shows that wifi is enabled (but no signal)
searching for (or manually trying to connect) a network yields nothing. in fact it sits on the "searching for networks" and eventually times out. There are neighbouring wifi networks that would be detected and none are now showing up.
The printer has not moved. The kids have been using the photocopying function so no idea if they've done something?
The printer works fine is all of its functions side from wifi.
i know i could use wifi or powerline adapters etc but this question isn't about that. ultimately i just want to feel confident pulling it apart and seeing if the wifi module is stuffed or its just an aerial unplugged etc.
