Default hp photosmart C7180 wifi problem

ok here is my problem i have a hp photosmart C7180 printer and u can print to it through wifi well just recently i put a password on my wifi router witch is a linksys i was able to get the internet working again on my computer by putting in the password and also on my moms laptop. i am able to print because i have a direct cable from my pc to the printer well my mom cant use the printer through the wifi. so my problem is how do i give wireless access back to the printer. and the reason why i put a password on my internet in the fist place is because my neighbors were using my internet and was causing me to lag like crazy all the time. so plz help

Read the printer manual for instructions on how to configure WEP or WPA on the printer.

If you plan to keep it hooked up to your PC via USB cable all the time, you could also just add the printer as a network printer on your mom's laptop, as long as you guys are on the same workgroup/network.
