dual wired and wireless printer connections

Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Configuration question for an HP LaserJet Pro M281fdw:  I use a wired connection (ethernet) from my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit to my printer.  Can I also configure the printer to print wirelessly from  my mobile devices without interfering with my wired connection?

The printer can only have one IP address, so you can not have both enabled.

You can only connect the printer using one connection method to your router indeed (either wirelessly or wired),.

However, any device connected to that router can use the printer, it doesn't matter if the other device is connected wirelessly or with a cable, as long as both devices and the printer are connected to a single network (router).
