Hello again, LQ. If you haven't noticed yet, I'm the whiny guy who wants to be Linux-educated but can't figure anything out on his own. I've used Windows as a crutch for too long, and this is my last step towards Windows Independence.
We've got a Netgear Wireless Print Server in our home:
But I can't figure out how to connect to it properly in Linux? I've tried looking at CUPS and stuff, but I can't figure out what to do. By that, I mean I don't know whether its IPP or HTP or LPT or whatever. The website I provided shows the product, but it has absolutely helpful info that I can find.
It works flawlessly in Windows Vista, but the wizard that I used to install it shields all the technical stuff that I need to know to set it up in Linux.
The print server is connected to our internet server. From my computer's perspective:
My Gateway: 192.168.1.1
My Laptop: 192.168.1.101
My Print Server: 192.168.1.206
My Printer is an HP Deskjet 9800 connected to Port 1.
I'm running Xubuntu 8.04
When I check my printer's properties it says its in port "IP_192.168.1.206P1" but the CUPS front-end doesn't seem to like when I give it that answer.
Can I get a step-by-step tutorial on how to do this? The info might have been in the manual... but I'm not the one who bought the thing so I have no clue where the manual is (and neither does anybody else). Let me know if you need more info.
