Printer won't print after i changed my wireless router's password

This question is answered

I have a Dell V313w.

I changed my wireless router's password yesterday and since then my printer will no longer print anything. It turns on but the "wi-fi" light on the front of the printer is a solid orange color. I'm assuming i just have to let the printer know my router's new password, but i'm not sure how to do that. Or maybe i'm wrong and that isn't the fix to my problem. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    On just one of the computers, you'll need to run Delete Print Jobs to remove any stuck print jobs from the queue.

     

    Uninstall the printer.

     

    Restart your computer. Make sure the rpitner was removed. Manual Printer Driver Removal

     

    With the computer online, insert the printer disk and choose it's a new installation. It will prompt you to connect the printer, find your network and ask for the password. If it does not accept the new password, connect to the neighbors netwpork, fake a password, you'll get an error, then try your network and password and it should connect.

    What is a Dell Service Tag and how do I locate it?
