I installed fedora 29 on my dell laptop. under settings, i can look at devices and see my two wifi printers. hower-ver, I cannot print out a test page or learn how to assign one of the printers to be the default and print out something from firefox. appreciate any input.

Have you installed the printer drivers? My brother wireless laser driver installer has wifi detection as part of the driver installation.

Is the printer an AirPrint capable printer?

How do I download the drivers? I'm not sure how to get it from the repository.

I've figured out how to download th hplib-gui driver set and install it. So far, it only recognizes one of my 2 wifi printers. It does not recognise my ENVY 7800 series printer (won't install it), but it recoginses my B210 printer. When I look at settings-devices, it sees both printers. is this due to having a newer printer? i tried adjusting some of the network time outs, but with no luck.

I've downloaded the hplib-gui drivers package and read the instructions on how to install it. It recognizes one of two of my h-p wifi printers (the one I am having some issues with, like ink supply and paper supply.
