    What Operating Systems (Win98, XP etc.) are on the PC's?

    Do you get any error messages at all?

    Can you see the printer in the 'Control Panel' 'Printers' on the PC using wireless, and does it indicate 'Ready' ?

Sorry I was wrong about the number on the computer but the question is the same how come I can't print or fax ?

Do you receive any type of error message? It seems for some reason your wireless printer is not communicating with the PC/laptop. Also, printing and faxing each require different forms of communication. In printing, you PC is just telling the printer to print what is on the screen; faxing requires the use of a phone line that needs to be set-up properly. Although the wireless setup btw the printer and PC must be working first.

Try uninstalling and reinstalling the software with the printer not plugged into the PC until the software is installed. Also, reread your manual carefully for insights about your issue.

Check that you do not have a firewall working. Set the printer by inputting the Ip or printer name when installing, do not browse for printer.

Why when wireless printing using same hardware worked fine, now not responding.

Unless it is the EXACT same wireless router from your service provider it could be the router. I mean that if you have moved and your provider gave you another router (same make and model) then it could be the wireless router. I struggled with this myself and after having the provider change the router, the problem disappeared immediately with the printer connection. The problem was only with the printer (HP in this case) as other wireless devices worked okay. Strange but true.

How to make a printer wireless

Plug into a wireless print server.If your printer has a USB port, you can plug in a wireless print server, a small box into which you can connect your printer. The advantage of investing in a print server is that you don't have to connect the printer to a PC, which means you can use your laptop and print anywhere in your home.
.tmnAdsenseContainer{margin-bottom:10px;} We found plenty of print servers in the $50 range on, although many of the models cost closer to $75 or $100). Before you buy, make sure the print server is compatible with your printer (the printer's written materials are less likely to specify compatibility with print servers).
During the setup, you will have to plug the printer into the printer server, and connect that to the router using an Ethernet cable. Meanwhile, you'll have to install software on your computer and configure the connection, as you would when setting up a router.

Sometimes this problem occures when you install a later model wireless router.
