Re: New Internet provider, wireless printer will not print.
Please appreciate that we have no idea what process you went through when you first installed the printer. Perhaps you could give us details so that we can comment.
There's a common set of procedures that one can always follow trying to pin down nasty network issues:
1. Try pinging your router.
2. Open your router and see what IP it has assigned your printer.
3. Print out a settings sheet on your printer and see if the IPs match.
4. Try pinging your printer.
5. Do you have a firewall configured on your own box?
6. Is the printer getting its IP address through DHCP or BootP?
7. Is the router assigning the printer its address dynamically or did you set it up with a static IP?
8. Do you have HPLIP installed?
9. If so, which version?
This should give enough to go on for now.
Jumping the gun a little, but you may also wish to start giving some thought to upgrading to 12.04. The upgrade process alone could solve a number of issues, and 10.04 only has about a month of life left before its die-date. If you intend on upgrading, then do a fresh install (not network upgrade) and the new drivers/configuration/apps could make wrestling with your balky configuration academic. If contemplating this option, MAKE SURE you run the whole thing as a LiveCD first. Otherwise, if you box is not sufficiently powerful, or if the new 12.04 drivers don't work, you could be left in worse shape than you are now.
