Did you try reinstalling your printer software and drivers? Go into control panel ->printers and delete the old one first, then reinstall everything from the disks that came with the printer.

Hp laserjet wireless not found on my phone

why not RTM? (omg)
read the manual,
all this is covered there. how to CONNECT.
there is no phone support, apple or android. only xp to w10.
on newer printer, far newer, the phone can be linked to HP smart print servers and to your home system printers.

here is HP site page showing how to do that,

first pick a printer that does that.
using the smart app
or ePrint.
there are many ways to set that up, but direct cell to printer.
no. (yes new products can do direct cell print)
that is called wireless direct print , features, as see here.

you said you have phone (cell apple or android?_)
then said have a laptop.
my cell , is android and I use local wifi , to save 3g charges
do you?
my laptop has internet connections 2 ways, wired, and wireless
does yours have wireless. seems not.? but.... do you?
you said no router, but if you go to any ISP today
and he installs internet service, there are 2 hidden router now
inside the old name modem,
the modern cheaper modem has that, hidden is side.
has 3 things in the black box.

so what do you have there that we cant see, devices to the ISP
with names and model numbers.
knowing that tells the helper what is possible , (all things)

my guess is you want to print, using the CELL.
if you dont have eprint mail the docs or photos to the laptop
then, print from Laptop
to printer using a USB cable, (USB is 10x more easy to make work)

your printer can connect up 3 ways.
Printer USB to PC. direct wired printing. ( always a choice, direct)
Ethernet to router. wired. (all things connected to this router can print.
wireless to router. printer to router joined, and print from any thing at home connected to said router.

if it must be wireless, (you must have that?)
then buy a router. and use that, and is safer behind any router firewall vastly saver too boot.

Wireless connection with a wireless router (Netgear WNDR 4000) a pc and a laptop.

I assume you connect your printer to the desktop with the USB cable.
I assume the laptop is connected to the Wifi network.

First you need to setup the printer to connect to the wireless network. Follow the printer installation instructions to do that.
Next insert the install Disc into the laptop and follow the installation instructions. Use the network installation section.

The printer has a built-in server for printing.
If UPNP is enabled on the router then you should be able to browse the printer on the network.

Wondering what I need to print wirelessly from laptop with this printer

If you printer hasn't a built-in wireless connection and if you haven't a wireless router then -
You need a wireless router plus print server. Connect this print server to the wireless router with a LAN cable. Then the printer is then connected to the print server's printer port.
The laptop's wireless card is then configured with the router's wireless settings.
The laptop is then installed with the printer driver and the printer port needs to be changed/configured with the print server's IP address.
If the printer is connected to a desktop computer on your home LAN and it is also connected to your wireless router. Then you can set this printer as A Shared Printer on your desktop computer, but this desktop computer and the printer has to be powered up for the laptop to print to the printer.
For instruction on setting up a shares network printer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I cannot print over wireless connection. I am using the Linksys WRT54G. I am trying to print from my laptop to my HP LaserJet 1320 PCL 6 printer. I cannot see the printer from my laptop. I am using AVG...

Disable your firewall on that computer where you shared your printer.

After that check firewall settings to allow printing from the network.

Your router working ok.

Need my laptop to communicate wireless to printer

If the printer does not have a built-in network card/print server then there is a couple of ways to do this.
If you have a desktop computer connected to the wireless router with a LAN cable, then connect the printer to the desktop computer and make this printer a shared printer on your network. This means that the desktop computer and printer needs to be on when you want to print from the laptop.
The other way is to purchase a print server, connect the printer to the print server and connect the print server with a LAN cable to the Wireless router.
If you don't have sufficient network ports on the wireless router then you need to purchase a hub. Then connect the hub and wireless router with a LAN cable and then the print server to the hub and other computers to the hub.
Setting up the wireless printing will depend upon which method you want to adopt and I can advise you when further when you are ready.
