my printer model is hp photosmart 5520 series and

laptop and printer are on wireless

Thank you

Can you power off the wireless modem and remove the power from the printer.

Then power off the computer.

After 5 minutes, power on the wireless modem and wait 5 minutes for it to start.

Then power on the printer, start the computer and tell me if the printer still appears offline please.

Thank you
