[SOLVED] HP DJ 2600 USB AND WiFi Printing???

HP Recommended
HP Deskjet 2600

Just purchased this printer and connected it to my Linux desktop via USB. No problem, works great and they sit next to each other...

Question: can I now ALSO set it up to print via WiFi from some Android phones and tablets and a Windows laptop?? Can it run the 2 types of connections simultaneously?? Can I print from the Linux PC (via usb) and then, without any other extra steps, print something from one of the mobile devices (via wifi)?? 

 

Any information would be greatly appreciated....

 

Solved!! Yes I can print using both connections!! As I said, it was working with Linux via USB. Plugged the USB cable into my Windows 10 laptop and started the install printer process. First thing it asked for was a WPS PIN!! What?? Did a quick search and it seems this should come up on the printer screen. Well my little screen is so small there is no way a PIN was gonna be displayed. As I'm looking around, the printer started up and printed out the PIN (good for 90 seconds!) Went thru the setup and was told to unplug the USB. I plugged it right back in to the Linux box. Printed a page wirelessly from the Windows laptop and then printed one via the Linux USB connection!! All is well. Then installed the HP Smart app on my Android tablet and printed a page from there!! It even printed out an email address to send prints to to print on the printer. Quite happy with my $39 printer now!! Though I wish it would also send faxes thru the phone line like the Officejet 5610V did that I just took out of service. Went to buy new ink cartridges for it and found they were almost 2X (combined) the price of this printer and I could print via wifi....
