    This is a more general suggestion, but after upgrading to Leopard I initially had some trouble printing to my Canon inkjet wirelessly.

    The solution ended up being basically re-setting-up the printer--I disconnected it from the base station, power-cycled the base station, hooked it back up, set it up properly in Airport, then deleted all existing versions of in from my Macs and re-added it.

    This may have nothing to do with your problem, and I admit those HP printers seem to be particularly prone to OSX issues.

    so is your printer connected to a router or a pc on the network?

    I apologize for misunderstanding your setup.

    I thought there was a guide on this here at MR, but this is a fairly detailed description with another HP printer that might point you in the right direction, if nobody here has a more specific suggestion:
