HP wireless printer sees network, won't connect after installing new xFi gateway

Just installed new xFi modem. Everything working perfectly except printer (HP Photosmart 5510, wireless) . It sees the network but won't connect. The printer's troubleshooter says it is unable to connect and that the problem may be the router settings as follows : This may be caused by  1) 802.11 devices only and 2) WPA-TKIP only encryption. WPA-TKIP is no longer allowed for newer certified wireless 802.11n devices because WPA-AES provides stronger security. It recommends that I change my wireless router encyrption setting to WPA-AES or WPA-AES or TKIP(also called mixed-mode), then re-run the wireless set up.
