Talking D-Link DPR1260 and Ubuntu 10.04

Just installed Ubuntu. It's my first experience with Linux.
Everything works great except I can't seem to get at my printers via the D-Link DPR-1260 Wireless print server.

I go though the printer setup dialogs to set this thing up as an LPD printer, and I end up with a "Device URI" of


This returns -"Processing - Connecting to Printer" in the Printer State and it seems to never complete that. I get a exclamation point/yellow triangle on the printer icon, and the print jobs just sit there in queue.

Instead of the ip address, I have tried using "DPR1260" and "dlink-fbfce8" and every permutation I can think of. These are listed as the Device Name on the DPR1260'S device info page, but those return "Unable to locate printer DPR1260/dlink-fbfce8" messages when I try to use them instead of the ip.

The printer works fine when direct connected to the computer.
It works fine from my wife's Windows computer. I do have LPD enabled on the DPR1260.

I'm out of ideas.

"I'm out of ideas." leads me to believe that this was marked solved accidentally. Is that true?
