I don't know why I felt the need to have ethernet  MAC added to wireless settings

Must be that local village idiot disease again?

ok lets review, eth cable to modem/router
wireless MAC filters enabled
turn on wireless HP radio but do not try to send WPS or its PIN from HP

EDIT image host link broken

now keep wireless security up and see if we can connect?
That means from previous messages......disable WPS in router
But that scan image is from this screen......with WPS enabled and as soon as I disable WPS I loose the scan button

image host link broken
so put the WPS to show the scan button function etc

image host link broken

and of course if I press scan, the first image appears

verdict

I am stumped on how I might get true hp printer wireless to be detected

so final test using method 1

wireless security disabled but use WPS buttons to connect shows
socket://192.168.1.102:9100 in cups after inputting cups root passwd and clicking on find new printer

and test one text file........YES!

TODO

try again wireless to router to wireless to hp

I think give up on usb lead into printer..............I call that printer server and I lack the skills to set that up at the moment

method 2.....also a success

desktop tower______usb wireless dongle -------wireless to modem/router ------  wireless to WPS connected hp printer
wireless security turned off but wireless MAC filtering is on

Probably not a surprise cups finds it with the same details 
socket://192.168.1.102:9100

The first time I ran avahi-browse -at .....no printer hits but just redid it and the printer hits are
Code: [Select]
avahi-browse -at
+  wlan0 IPv4 Deskjet 3050 J610 series [88607F]             _http-alt._tcp       local
+  wlan0 IPv4 Deskjet 3050 J610 series [88607F]             _scanner._tcp        local
+  wlan0 IPv4 Deskjet 3050 J610 series [88607F]             _http._tcp           local
+  wlan0 IPv4 Deskjet 3050 J610 series [88607F]             _pdl-datastream._tcp local

ok lets risk turning off avahi and see if we can still print?

cups page shows
Discovered Network Printers:    Deskjet 3050 J610 series (HP Deskjet 3050 J610 series)

marked as solved

############ Summary###########

desktop tower_________eth cable to modem/router -  -----------------------------  wireless to WPS found HP printer  = Success
desktop tower____usb wireless dongle ------ wireless to modem/router------ wireless to WPS found HP printer   = Success
desktop tower_________eth cable to modem/router_________________________________usb cable to HP printer    = Currently a Fail

I suspect that usb cable into router needs some kind of printer server settings and I lack the skills to do it.

It does not matter, I have 2 good ways at the moment

Initially I thought I might need networking skills to solve the usb cable into router failure

I know believe its due to the actual router not having Linux support for the usb port as seen for windows users needing to download a zip file

http://www.tp-link.com.au/support/download/?pcid=203&model=TD-VG3631&version=V1

usb printer setup wizard

and it appears similar to this online doc

http://www.tp-link.com/en/article/?faqid=415

I could be wrong again.

Ok managed to stop WPS wireless setting but kept MAC filtering for wireless

When WPS router button connection was made, I elected to go in web browser to 192.168.1.150 and discovered HP network control panel thingee.

It had an option to setup WPA with password etc, I input the stuff and promptly lost connection, which HP had predicted but I could not see how to to cups to see the printer with the new settings

ok found
http://www.hp.com/global/us/en/wireless/wireless-network-help4.html

It claims to set up a static ip OUTSIDE my router DHCP parameters
I never knew that!....but I am the local village idiot

I changed my parameters for DHCP to  192.168.1.100 to 150 and had un-fixed *150 from the MAC of HP

so now I will have a look at fixing MAC to 192.168.1.200

I have a static ip for the printer. For some reason I thought I had to do that from within TC and had no idea.

and I have disabled WPS and now have WPA2/AES.....as far as I can tell

EDIT now I can print with cupsd.conf entry
Listen localhost:631
Listen Listen /var/run/cups/cups.sock
Listen 192.168.1.200:9100

and my printers.conf now looks like

This updates my wireless router settings
to refresh, I bought a second hand hp wireless printer which I was only able to get in via the WPS system.

TC eth cable to wireless router

I have now configured my router to use only WPA2 stuff, disabled wireless MAC filtering and
Code: [Select]
avahi-browse -at
+   eth0 IPv4 Deskjet 3050 J610 series [88607F]             _http-alt._tcp       local
+   eth0 IPv4 Deskjet 3050 J610 series [88607F]             _scanner._tcp        local
+   eth0 IPv4 Deskjet 3050 J610 series [88607F]             _http._tcp           local
+   eth0 IPv4 Deskjet 3050 J610 series [88607F]             _pdl-datastream._tcp local
+   eth0 IPv4 box [00:21:97:76:2d:da]                       _workstation._tcp    local
+   eth0 IPv4 box                                           _udisks-ssh._tcp     local
+   eth0 IPv4 box                                           _ssh._tcp            local
+   eth0 IPv4 box                                           _sftp-ssh._tcp       local

My previous images are broken as my old host server no longer works but thats my printer as showing when I use TC browser pointing to its static ip=192.168.1.200
and its bonjour page shows
Bonjour Service Name.................. Deskjet 3050 J610 series [88607F]
Bonjour Domain Name...................HP88607F.local.

2) Now to check it again but disable eth cable and use USB dongle wireless

deleted last reply as I now have success. woo hoo just for avahi

eth cable pulled, router with new settings as per reply above and USB dongle wireless signal from TC to router----router wireless to HP wireless printer
Code: [Select]
avahi-browse -at
+  wlan0 IPv4 Deskjet 3050 J610 series [88607F]             _http-alt._tcp       local
+  wlan0 IPv4 Deskjet 3050 J610 series [88607F]             _scanner._tcp        local

+  wlan0 IPv4 box                                           _ssh._tcp            local
+  wlan0 IPv4 box                                           _sftp-ssh._tcp       local

woo hoo, using TC USB wireless dongle to wireless router to wireless HP printer

I did not start cups with the normal init = cups but a new init called browsed from yet to submit TCZ=
cups-browsed

If you have a hardened sotware firewall, I also added

iptables -A INPUT -p udp -m udp --dport 5353 -j ACCEPT (to bootlocal or use root powers)
