SOURCE: I have installed Windows 7 now How to connect HP

When you installed Win7, did you upgrade or did you do a Clean install? If you performed an upgrade, you may have the problem with older conflicting drivers and services. Read this to see what I mean.

Just bought a NetGear WNDR 3400 router and used the set-up wizard. Set-up was successful and two my two laptops are commiunicating with the router and I am able to get on the internet. I can't get an HP...

Is the printer software installed on the laptops? Are you trying to print from the laptop itself, or a phone or tablet?
Sounds like from what you said the devices are on the network, but they still need the correct software to communicate with each other.

Try to use a smartphone and install the HP mobile printing app, if that app is able to find your printer, it is indeed on the network correctly.

If you can print from the phone/tablet, but not the laptops, you need to install the software drivers for your printer to your laptop(s) you wish to print from.

Can't connect to remote Deskjet 5150

Please, how does your Win 7 x64 machine compare to anything else on your network?

Can any other computer see that printer at all?

When you install the printer locally does that mean by USB, or what please?

How do I make my hp deskjet f4100 wireless?

I've been using an HP F4100 printer at our office for almost 2 years which is connected to another computer, using wireless network connection. As far as I can remember, I installed the driver on my laptop prior to adding the printer via the "Add a Printer" wizard. After installation and upon using the wizard which automatically detects the network printer, I was already able to start printing in wireless mode. Hope this works for you too. =)

Wireless Dell laptop can't 'find' HPDeskjet 5150 Printer

this printer is (as per HP specs) only connected via USB or Wlan Print server.
Check connection using USB cable and be sure Printer driver are correctly working.
Check on Router your Print server IP address (Lock it out of DHCP)
Put both PRT and PC on same home network (normally HOME or MSWORK)
Put Printer server IP address into your printer properties/port tab/ IP.
OR check if you see your printer server in your Windows network/home network
