Have new router. How do I get my printer's wifi back up and running?


Reset your printer's wireless network adapter first before re-connecting it to your new router's wifi network. Check this article from the Lexmark website on How to Reset the Network Settings Back to the Factory Defaults on the 'Impact' S300 and 'Interpret' S400 Series All-in-Ones.
After resetting the printer, check this article on How to Install Lexmark S and Pro Series via Wi-Fi on Mac OS 10.x.
We hope this helps.

You stated you have a mac. Is your Mac a laptop that provides wireless? Or are you on a Mac desk top connected to a router that has wireless included with it.. If you have either than you need to go into your network and sharing to set-up the wireless printer. This will give you access to your router via desktop or your wireless settings via laptop,
Once there if you are already using wireless settings you are going to have to allow your printer in through your wep or wap encryption settings. This was set up when you first started using your wireless to keep out intruders.

Connection to laptop


Most printers are connected to laptops via the USB ports. If the printer is supposed to be wireless, then you may have to connect the laptop via the USB port so you can activate the wireless port.

How to wirelessly access HP Laserjet 1320n via Apple iBook


You need to disconnect the USB cable and set it up wireless on both units:
Since it is plugged into the router, it should already have an IP address.
Un-install the printer from the computers.
Then re-install the printer from the cd or from HP's website. When you get to the point where it ask you is the printer is attached to the computer or is it over the network. Choose over the net work and the software will find the printer IP and finish setting it up wireless.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
