Xerox MFP in Linux

Redhat version 5
Cups version 1.3
I'm having trouble with a Xerox PS multifunction printer in Linux.  When a print job is sent to it the network controller on the printer reboots.  
We do have another Xerox machine that works however i do notice a difference between the two.  
The working one has 'Device:' set to 'Xerox WorkCentre 5150 v1 Multifunction System 192.168.10.46' and the 'Device URL' is set to 'socket://192.168.10.46'  however on the one we're having trouble with 'Device:' is set to 'AppSocket/HP JetDirect' and 'Device URL' is set to 'socket://X10:9100'.
How do I add a new 'Device' for the printer that I'm having trouble with?

The setting for Device (AppSocket/HP JetDirect) is weird. Appsocket is the protocol used for port 9100, not a printer model.

For "Device URL" I assume that X10 points to the printer's IP address. At least it seems to use port 9100, which links back to the Device setting.

I would reinstall this printer with the correct settings. Mazdajai's suggestion should do that. You should be able to use either LPD or Appsocket for the protocol - the printer supports both.
