Yes, it had worked fine for the past year. Suddenly became unaccessible. No
matter what steps i try to follow in the Network Connections Wizards and
troubleshooting, the printer won't recognize the wireless computer. No
trouble getting on-line. Any suggestions?

Hi
Printer sharing is part of the Network Sharing, it might be that your
sharing between the two computer is Not functioning any more.
Try to check/reconfigure the sharing system.
Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,

allowed to be shared.
