Hello I have a Zyxel NBG-418N V2 N300 Wireless Home Router setup and everything was working fine but recently I have bought an HP wireless printer, it connected to my Zyxel router setup just fine but it won't take any print commands wirelessly. If I print a paper directly through the printer it is working OK but not when I want to print something wirelessly from my computer. What is the issue? I do not what to do?
