See if you can find how he configured CUPS to use the printer. You 
have a wireless connection to the printer because you can connect to 
its web page. But without the printer manual, it is hard to know 
what protocols it supports. If it supports lpr or IPP, then you need 
to know what the print queue names are. If it only supports Windows 
print sharing, then you have to tell CUPS that. This should be in 
the printer manual.
