Having problem resetting wireless printer
After changing broadband IP service, I cannot find the linkage to change the
System Password and WEP Key for my HP6800 series wireless printer. The HP
instructions for accessing the proper dialog box directs me to the
Accessories menu to find Communications, in which Wireless Connection Setup
should be available, but in Vista, no such connection exists under
Accessories, as it did in XP. How may I resolve this dilemma??? There must be
a route, but Help doesn't seem to help!!

You actually don't need to change anything on the printer unless the new
service uses a different IP addressing scheme and the printer is a static
IP on the old scheme. Usually you administer network printers by opening a
browser and going to their IP address. An example: let's say your printer
is assigned 192.168.1.200. In the addressbar of your browser (perhaps IE),
you'd type: http://192.168.1.200 [enter]. This would bring you to the
configuration utility for your printer where you could change it's IP,
wireless key, etc.
