You'll find any available drivers for the HP Deskjet 6988 on the support page for the 6980 series printers: https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-deskjet-6980-printer-series/468002/model/3422864 .

The Windows 7 driver should be found by Windows Update when you connect the printer with a USB cable. If you are using the printer in a network, you need to manually add a printer (using the wizard) from the Printers and Devices Control Panel. Start this after you have the printer connected to your router or switch. See https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01796879 and expand the section for Wireless or Wired Connection (Windows 7, Vista).

I hope this helps.

I do not have a maintenance option to select on my properties for my HP Deskjet 6988 and it's in desperate need of a cleaning


There is very limited support for this model and none from HP. Windows 7 loaded a generic driver when you plugged in the usb cable. What you got is all you are going to get.
This is the pitfall of a new operating system and an older printer.

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.
