Error: Unable to write print data: broken pipe: Problem communicating with the printer.

Just upgraded my xfinity plan including a new router. WIFI works great but now I can’t print from my Mac over WIFI to a Brother MFC7225N printer attached to the router via ethernet. In the print log on my mac I get “Unable to write print data: broken pipe: Problem communicating with the printer." I have removed and reinstalled the printer, reset the printing system on the mac as recommended on various forums. No avail. Is there a setting I am missing in the xfinity network settings?
