P1102w wireless on Fedora 18 [solved]

I've been using my P1102w on Ubuntu for a few years: it worked fine, both USB and wireless, thanks to the foo2zjs driver.

Now I'm switching to Fedora 18 and run into trouble... When I connect the printer with the USB cable, it prints smoothly. But I can't get it to print on the wireless, even though it is recognized as a network printer in CUPS and I use the foo2zjs driver compiled from your website (I first removed the Fedora third-party one, along with hplip).

Quite at a loss here, any hints?

OK solved, I set up a manual IP address for the printer instead of the dynamic one, and it works!

Had to reinstall the printer with the new IP on my girlfriend's laptop (still on Ubuntu) though. I still don't understand why it worked with the dynimic IP on Ubuntu and not on Fedora, but both can print with the static one so I'm happy. :)

Sorry for the trouble... hoping this can help someone else.
