Default network printer

Hi,

I am having troubles with network printing which was working correctly last week. i tried deleting the drivers for it and reinstalling it but i cant get it successfully connected. I tried disconnecting the cables and installing it and then connecting to see if that would work to no avail. I kept them connected with the same results. This is an HP deskjet 1510 printer and is not hard wired as it is hard wired to my desktop. I am using my laptop. How can i fix this issue?

thx

Please describe how your printer is cvonnected to the network?

is it wifi to router, or hardwired to router, or is it even connected to the router.
Agian a little more info about your network will help figure out where the problem is
