Fix HP Network Printer Problems
HP printer is well known for its performance. Sometimes it may have some problem with the router reassigning IP addresses and the printer not knowing how to get a new address, or forgetting its old one. There is an option to assign an IP address manually from the printer console, and if you tried that, giving it one outside the DCHP range of the router. But when you print a Network configuration report from the HP, it might say the IP address is configuring. Then you go back to automatic assignment of IP address, hoping that would get the printer to ask the router for an address, but the Network Configuration Report still might say configuring. There might also be a problem with the domain name listed in the Network configuration report.

If your printer were connected to your Mac via AppleTalk, the printer would not respond after upgrading to Snow Leopard. To get it working again, go to the print and fax system preferences pane and click the plus (+) icon. If the name of your printer appears in the default list, you select the name and click to add it. However, chances are good that a previously AppleTalk-connected printer is old to include Bonjour support and would not show up in the Default list. In this case, you need to do a bit more work to add the printer back.
