hp 3050 wireless printer don't print from puppy 5.1

I got a hp 3050J610 wireless all in one and hooked it up to my wireless network
and it works fine from windows vista from my hp notebook. I also run puppy 5.1
off a pen drive which runs fine on the laptop. Puppy sees my network fine and
goes on the internet from my satalite modem over the wireless network no problems.
I installed the wireless printer to puppy with the cups wizard without any errors or problems. Cups found the printer and correct ip address no problem. I used the 610c
driver from the cups menu which I assume is the right one. I can't seem to find another one. It lists the printer and lists the right ip address. when I try to print it shows it is printing the print job but nothing happens at the printer. I look in the print manager and it shows the print job was done. I can ping the ip address and get a responce. Can anyone help me out with this problem? Thank you for any help I can get.

I think the problem is running puppy off the pen drive while running Vista on your laptop? Have you thought about that?

How does your device URI in CUPS look like? Did you setup the printer via hp-setup provided by hplip? I think the "Deskjet 610c" driver is not the correct one for this model(yes it should really print something). From hplip 3.10.9 up there is a special driver for this model available.

I would like to thank everyone who replied. It was much help. I downloaded hplip and installed it. It had the right driver. put the correct driver with the printer and everything worked fine. My laptop has vista on it but I boot puppy from a pin drive.
So far puppy has worked great. Again, thanks for the support. Dave kc2ipx
