    Firstly, this is not a new printer I'm trying to connect for the first time. It has been working perfectly well for quite a few years. But the last two times I've needed to print something I've not been able to. When I turn the printer on certain buttons have flashing lights which become solid when ready. But the button that shows Wi-fi has connected either has no light at all or constantly flashes but never goes solid. Normaly it would flash about 10 times only. The wi-fi is working as this laptop and a few phones all connect ok. HP's help tools are not much help as they can't find the printer due to no connection. Bit of a catch-22 situation. Only thing I can think is to unplug the router and start it again.
