My computer has lost the wireless printer and cannot find it

Running Windows 7, my Chillblast has suddenly lost the wireless HP Photosmart 5220 printer. Nothing that i've tried has helped - System Restore failed, uninstalling the Hp sotware and re-installing it has not worked. Any ideas gratefully received.

Turning your router off for while then back on again frequently fixes problems like that. Do the same to your printer too - but make sure you turn it off at mains.
