I didn't read where you setup the wireless printer again.

I'd start trying it with the old router again to see if it's a router issue or a printer issue.
Then I'd try the printers self test to see if it finds anything wrong.
Then I would try it wired via it's USB 2.0 connection.

Please tell the results of these 3 tests.
