Hi, I have just installed a netgear Wireless-N300 router. Problem is i cant connect my HP 5850. I have tried wireless and wired with no joy,my PC cant find it. USB works but not what i want. I had this printer on my old network and all was fine. Win XP Service pack 3.

Sorry, but still not sorted.
When I print a report sheet:
Printer is reporting as connected whether its wired or wireless it also gives an IP address but when trying to goto address it cant be found...Grrr!
I am sure its something to do with netgear (software or router).Usb connects instantly.
It looks like without the Embedded Web Server (EWS)I am just about shafted!

YaaaaHoo!
It appears to be sorted now.
I had to reset printer(factory default)to clear-out old network settings that were hiding my printer as it was on a network that had been removed.
Cheers
