My mum has a old desktop ,I h@ve connected a  new Pinter but I have had to do it with a cable ra6her than wireless as the tower is not Bluetooth,all is well with printing but I can not now connect wireless to the modem so it can be part of the instant ink scheme I am not very up there with tech I just know the basics , I am thinking that this is not possible to have the printer wireless  and cable installed at same time is this correct I have spent hours trying to figure it out and losing the will to live thanks

@Lucacat Losing the will to live, is a little dramatic? isn't it? 😛

That said, I'm afraid you are right, there's no way of connecting the printer to both wired and wireless at the same time.


Although, reply with the below information and I can be more precise, depending on which device you've got, just to be sure.
