I have HP LaserJet M1212nf MFP, and have not yet been able to get it to print, 
either by USB or Ethernet.

In NetBSD, by Ethernet, it still can't find any devices (which was also true 
with USB with both NetBSD and FreeBSD).

I could possibly check dmesg.boot and/or login to wireless router to try to 
find printer URL when connected by Ethernet.

I wonder if the USB problems are due to the printer, due to hplip in Linux and 
BSD, or due to hplip in BSD only.

I need to try with Linux.

In FreeBSD, hp-setup found the printer when connected by Ethernet, but was 
unsuccessful installing the required binary plugin.
