My Hp deskjet 2540 printer is connected wirelessly through my router to my Win 10 desktop pc. The printer was working fine until yesterday when I replaced my router with an upgraded model. The new router has a different password from the old one. The new router is working well and it fully supports a remote iPad working off it. But the printer does not work any longer.


Can someone please tell me how I change the settings on the printer so that it connects with the new router --- how do I tell the printer the new router password?


Thanks.   ... batpark

The manual says:


Change network settings
This method is available if you have already installed the printer software.
NOTE: This method requires a USB cable. Do not connect the USB cable until prompted to do so.
1. Depending on your operating system, do one of the following:
● Windows 8: On the Start screen, right-click an empty area on the screen, click All Apps on
the app bar.
● Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP: From the computer desktop, click Start,
select All Programs, click HP, click HP Deskjet 2540 series.
2. Click Printer Setup & Software.
3. Select Reconfigure Wireless Settings. Follow the on-screen instructions
