Solved!

Printer connection to PC, USB and/or ethernet? which is best?

HP Recommended
OfficeJet Pro 6968
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Setup instructions weren't clear to me; I have both LAN ethernet connection and USB connections available.  I have connected the USB to PC and Ethernet to router, is that proper?  Or do I only use one or the other?  If the later, which is best?

Hi,

 

Do you have a wireless network at home ? If yes, connect it to your home network and you can easily print, scan ... from computer(s), smartphone(s) tablet(s) ...wirelessly.

 

Please use a computer to set iy up using the CD which came with the printer. During the set up process, please use Wireless.

 

Regards.

As I have it set up now, I can print wirelessly from my wife's i-laptop. Now I have the ethernet cable hooked up from printer to router. Also have USB cable from printer to PC.  Are you saying I can remove either or both cables??
