Network Printing Problems - New


I have an old HP LaserJet 2100 that has printed fine for years from 2 Motorola Macs [OS 10.5.8] on an ethernet network connected to the M1424-WR router. I recently installed an Intel Mac [OS 10.8.2] running a Wi-Fi connection to the router to connect with the printer. I completely killed ALL connections with the printer! Only the laptop PC we have with a Wi-Fi connection to the router can successfully print now.

All computers see the printer but will not complete the connection to print. All computers are successfully connected to the Net; I've updated the router firmware; there are no duplicate IP address problems [DHCP]; Verizon Techs have been helpful but their diagnostics have not solved the problem.

Help, please...

You left out pertinent information concerning the HP LaserJet 2100's setup.

Does the HP LaserJet 2100 have a JetDirect Print Server and if yes, what is its IP address or are you sharing the printer from a computer ?
