Is this actually a printer that is directly attached to the network, or is it connected to a printer via a USB or parallel cable and shared on the network from the PC it's attached to?

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

That's because you deleted the printer, but this does not delete the connection you used for that printer.
Therefore, if the network printer used e.g. IP: and PORT:9100, this connection is listed in the connections for the printers.
So you simply have to choose the existing connection and it should work for you.
