I ran one update from my mac software update list...it was hp drivers update. When the update finished my interenet doesnt work with macs or handhelds...no wifi no ethernet...

*but vonage still works on the same internet line

After repeated resets of all devices from unpowered state I'm puzzled.

How do I roll back or undo the last software update

Thank you

    You recover your backup.

    If you didn't backup, you can still recover, but you need to backup first, and then do it piecemeal after an erase and install, those elements which are known not to affect your issue.

    Never do an update without backing up*:

    I'm sorry, but that's incomprehensible.

    Connect another printer that is supported, sell the one that isn't.*
    http://www.macmaps.com/printersx.html has many resources for printers.

    Locate the Library/Printers folder file for HP that contains your printer's driver and remove it. Mind you, it might take other drivers with it.

    Wait for HP to release an update, and install it.
