    Got'er done FINALLY! but it was a PITA having to deal with HP to get the IP address of the wireless radio in the printer to my router. And since HP doesn't 'really' do Linux.
    I had to put up with a very long phone call and lot of work on a Windows only machine to get it!
    I was having all kinds of frustration, and then come to find out the wireless icon on the printer panel was blinking! Which meant NO SIGNAL!
    Beginning to think I should have paid more the Brother MFP unit!

    But after all said and done, it is was a matter of a minute or two to set things up on the laptops for wireless printing.

    Thanks for all the excellent help folks!

    I can now print with openSuSe Leap! YAY!!! Can't Scan --- Boo!!
    I can backup my iPod and iPad with Windows, can't with Linux.(Will get there someday!)

    Yes it is! It should have been there, but wasn’t. Therefore the long duration phone call with HP support.I rebooted both printer and router multiple times until had no hair left, and called.

    https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-i.../release_notes

    HPLIP 3.19.1 - This release has the following changes:
    Added support for following new Distro's:
    - Open Suse 15(64-bit)

    Notes to follow:

    1. open suse 15: Need to install lsb-release package before installing HPLIP for the detection of distribution.
    command: su -c "zypper install lsb-release"

    2. If hp-plugin command does not install the plugin file successfully, as a work around, install the plugin file manually.
    command: sh hplip-3.19.1-plugin.run
