Printer Will Not Print On Wifi

I have a Brother HL-3070CW, which I ran through a BT HomeHub without any problems. I change ISP to TalkTalk last month and have been unable to print using the wireless network. I have been able to identify the printer on the network, but regardless of this it will not print. When I check in Printers on Control Panel it says "offline". I have tried reloading the printer software and I have reset the printer to factory settings. I have tried with 3 different computers, one with Windows 7, one Vista and one with XP.

Was the printer perhaps configured to work with the Subnet (IP address range) of the BT HomeHub which was different from that used by TalkTalk's router?

Check that the third octet (number) of the printer's IP address matches that of the new router, e.g. 192.168.0.x, 192.168.1.x etc.
