  1. Your laptop most likely printed to your printer using its IP address, which has now changed. Use your router's administration screen to view connected devices. Get the new IP address for the printer, and change its port on your laptop.
    ...OR, you can uninstall the printer on your laptop, wake it up by power-cycling it (so it will respond to pings), then re-install it.
  2. You changed your router, therefore the network your printer was on no longer exsists. Even if you give the new router and same name and password, you still have to go through the printer setup to get in on the network as the printer sees this as a new, locked network.
  3. Does your router's Admin page show the printer as a connected device?

    I know that. However after I install the driver and try to print it still comes up as an error. I've tried to install several different ways and nothings worked.
