Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I went to a link at CUPS 1.7.2. clicked on administration, then add printer. It came up with discovered network printers, I chose mine (Brother MFC 7860DW) then it took me to a list of models, mine was not included - so I went to the brother site and came up with a similar model (MFC 7840 W) clicked on that and tne add printer. When I try to print, it comes up with the printer model, but will not print. I figure it's because the printer is wireless and I'm missing the required communication (however, it did find the printer and the correct model number...) so I'm baffled...
Many thanks for your help!!
The error message seems to say that your printer doesn't have a wireless connection to your router.
This is done using Wi-Fi Protected Setup. You either enter the device number that should be found on your printer in the correct location when you open the setup function for your router, or use an automatic connection configuration program found on the printer, or simply press a WPS button if there is one.
The documentation for the printer should tell which one to use, but you can always make a connection using the device number(PIN method).
