After my computer stopped being able to print to my printer wirelessly (the printer isn't a wireless printer, but is wired to a wireless print server), I deleted the printer and tried to reinstall via the Add Printer Wizard. The printer wizard sees the printer on the network, but when I select it to install, it can't find the TCP/IP port and installation fails. How can this be?

I *can* print from this computer to the printer when connected directly via USB, and other computers can print to that printer wirelessly.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Go look at the printer server setup, see if it has an assigned IP.
