Description of problem:
Using printer configuration in MCC results in an absolute blank when it concerns a Wifi printer (an HP Officejet Pro 8100 in my case) and the wifi adapter in the PC is an Atheros device.
Trying to get the printer detected in CUPSweb or in the HPsetup, is equally impossible.
Workaround is to get to know the IP address of the printer and feed that in into the MCC printer configuration.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I cannot reproduce this problem when the same printer is configured on another PC with Realtek or Broadcom Wifi.
Steps to Reproduce:

Are you using drakx-net on all those systems?
If not, does switching from drakx-net to networkmanager or vv make a difference?
On the Atheros machine, I configure the network during installation, and I don't touch it anymore after rebooting.
I am in the process now of installing M5.1 on this machine, let's see how that ventures.
M5.1: detection of Wifi printer with Atheros Wifi works as a breeze.
