HP Printer ENVY PHOTO 7155
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So I like to connect computers to the LAN for optimal speed. This HP printer however is wireless. I get troubles keeping the printer connected this way. When connecting a computer over same WIFI I don't get these troubles. I have to connect to 2.4 GHz though, because that's the speed this printer works on. Can I set my router to adjust to 2.4 GHz for just this printer? Or any other solution to be able to print from 5Ghz connection to my computer? Or from computer on the LAN network to the WIFI printer setup?

When I'm here I have a problem

Faster WiFi won't make printers print faster, printers have their speed using PPM (Page per minute).

 

You can logon your router and allow it to broadcast DUAL bands which are 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz. Your printer will "see" 2.4GHz SSID and allow you to connect. All devices use same wifi router therefore your computer(s) can use you printer.
