I have an HP All in One wireless printer and HP Envy dr7 laptop which I've had for a few years. The printer worked in the past and then I tried to scan documents, as I have often. I was receiving a communication error. I rebooted the laptop and printer with no luck. I decided to uninstall the printer and try reinstalling and now, it's not even recognizing it automatically or manually, even when I input the IP address. I don't know what to do next.
On a side note, I'm wondering if the issue could be the network name. When I view my network info, the name Abcdef 2 (not real of course) is displayed but I never set up an Abcdef 2. The actual network is Abcdef and Abcdef 5G when wireless. I have no idea why there is a "2" after the name. When I view the printer wireless info, the name is Abcdef. Could that be the issue?
Thank you for any help.
