Laser Jet Pro MFP M479fdw - connected to wifi. Can I also set up a USB connection to my printer

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have my printer set up on my home wireless network. There are times when we lose our internet connection, so I would also like to set up a USB connection to my computer. Can I do that?  I tried and it messed everything up and I had to uninstall and then reinstall on the wireless network.

I also have a lap top and android devices, so I will need wireless for sure.

You should be able to but what you will probably want to do is setup two seperate printers in the the Windows devices and printers rather than trying to change the port back and forth between  Wireless and USB.
