    May I suggest, and I recognized this is a little off the discussion but it relates to printer losing connection.

    Use this tool near your printer to see the network or networks as your printer sees it or them. Look for interference, and signal strength, maybe even change router channel to shore up connection. If it is on channel 6 move to 9 or 3 and retest.

    As I recall HP requires the software for that printer to be installed and as the install progresses it will ask to have it connected. In the case of networked devices I leave them powered off until the software asks for printer.
