Can both wired and wireless simultaneous connection be used on OfficeJet Pro 6978 (

OfficeJet Pro 6978

Seem when I installed the printer, I used wireless connection.

Thereafter, after I installed the drivers on my desktop, a wired connection to the printer was required and used.

This wireless connection became disabled. So, in essence, it seems we have to either pick wired connection or wireless connection for this printer, but not both. 

Please confirm this limitations.

 

Thanks,

Hi,

Please clarify your intention with a wired connection, do you refer to a wired ethernet connection to a router or a wired USB connection to a computer?

 

Connecting the printer to a wired network using ethernet disables any wireless possibilities, the printer can only maintain one network connection.

I was referring to wired Ethernet connection from Desktop PC to VLAN Switch/Router. 

My intention was to have used both wired and wireless connection on same vlan. 

I guess you have answered by question by specifying the printer can only have 1 network connection at once.

I switched to usb wired connection on m y desktop, and now my wireless network connection is active.

Thanks for quick response.
