Only thing that I can think of is that it doesn't like the fact that it's a networked printer and not directly connected via USB or whatever like you have?
Thoughts / Suggestions?
Yeah, your post has had me thinking since I first read it.
It could be because of how you have the printer connected.
When you set it up on the Google site, there's an entry about registering your printers.
They should show up on that page (going by memory here, it was months ago I did it).
If your printer is on the list (there are other things on the computer that will show up as printers), you should be good to go.
In the Cloud Print app, when you set that up, there's a page where you select which printer
you want to use as the default. If it's not showing up in the app, that could be your problem. If it is there, again, you should be ok.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I couldn't get my wife's printer to work. Couldn't get it to "register" on the Google set up. Same setup as mine (just a different model HP), connected via USB to her computer, but just wouldn't register. Have no idea why.
Only other thing I can think of for you to try, if you haven't already, is to make sure your printer is set for sharing. Right click on it's icon, and you'll get a dialog box with a tab labeled sharing. Check the entry "share this printer on the network" or something like that.
Click apply or ok, whatever it says.
