Have a Lexmark Prestige Pro 805. I was using this printer and it worked perfectly until I moved it to my daughter's computer. Both of our computer's are the same. I loaded the installation software

You installed the drivers for the printer but you still need to select that printer as the default. Computers can have many printers connected to them so you will have to tell the computer to print to that printer. Go to your start menu and click on "Devices and Printers". If your printer is listed then all you have to do is right click on the icon of your printer and select "Set as default printer". If it is not listed then you can click on "Add a printer" at the top of the window, select "Add a local printer" and follow the instructions on adding your printer to the computer. Then you can set it as default like before. This may not be your problem but its worth checking to see that it is set as the default printer. If its not that then it may be a software issue.

Connection to modem does not seem to work even though settings seem to be correct.Printer recognises my network and accepts the WEP code for my modem

There is an installation process that you have to follow when installing these. First uninstall it, you should see if there is any other printers installed on the machine too and remove those. Then unplug the printer and restart the computer. Install the printer software on the computer and when it is done, then turn the printer back on.

First of all make sure the printer is connected to the computer and turned on.
Hp Solution Center, check SETTINGS and look for printers. Is your Printer listed there? I have a feeling that the name of the printer is not showing. If that is the case, you may have to reinstall the software.

Printer will work for only one computer

It's not the printer, it's the network. When Comcast installed cable in your office they disrupted/changed the network settings on the other computers. Go to the computer that can use the printer and right-click on it. Check Properties/Sharing. Make sure the Share This Printer box is checked. If it is, the problem lies in the network connection of the other PC's.
