Printer WIFI Connection issue

Since changing to Cox Wifi, I cannot get my Brother printer to connect with any of our PC / laptops vis WIFI. I keep having to connect directly using the USB cord. Please advise..

    I will assume you previously connected your printer directly to your router as a network share.  Some, if not most, routers don't have or support built-in print-server software.  Your previous router did but perhaps your new router does not.

    What's the make and model of your router?

      How are you connecting the printer to your LAN?

      Does the printer have a built-in wireless NIC?
