I have an HP OfficeJet 6000 e609a. It's a network printer.
This printer gets the same IP granted by the router each time via DHCP reservation. I can visit that static IP and see the printer's simple webserver page it hosts.
I have added the printer, so it appears in my printer list. When I try printing to it, I get the message "there was a problem communicating with the printer" Which is nice and descriptive.
But in the print dialog that appears (from notepad), the name of the printer is one of my options is the printer. It says "HP Officejet 6000", but about once every second, for about a fifth of a second, it flashes to a different text "UpgradePrinter".
I tried updating the driver from Microsoft's included list of drivers, but that was not successful.
