Driver it is using seems to be the most current one available. Also, I know that I could delete the old one now that there is 'Copy 1' installation available, but not taking any chances right now.

Here's what I recommend to anyone setting up a wireless printer: If you let the network assign an IP address to the printer initially, go into wireless settings and find the assigned IP address (for example 192.168.1.140.) Then, in the wireless settings there's an option (maybe manual setup?) change the IP address from automatic to static. You'll then have the ability to enter an IP address (it may already display the assigned number.) Be sure the IP address is the one previously assigned and save that as the static IP.

What I found on a windows setup was that, if during a power recycle, the router assigned the printer a different IP address than the one used when you added the printer to your computer settings, there was going to be a problem. Going to a static IP eliminated this issue.

I'm a little fuzzy on the details (switched to Mac a yr a go, mostly) but what I recall is that when you add the printer in Windows is creates a virtual LPT (printer) port, based on the IP number of the printer. If the printer powers off, it may get a new IP and that wasn't addressed in the setup. Static IP cures a world of hurt in this instance.
