The printer, an HP 6122, is supported according to the list. Thank you for the pointer.
The printer is being used as a network printer connected to a wireless Netgear Print Server by wire, which also serves as the internet provider to the computer, also wired to it, on which I will install Ubuntu. I already ran Ubuntu on it using the CD and it found the internet through the Printer Server, so I was surprised it did not see the printer which has the same IP
address as the server.Could that be the problem?
