OfficeJet Pro 8720 - Connect to 2 Networks Using Wifi & Ethernet

HP Recommended
OfficeJet Pro 8720
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

At my home, I am setting up 2 separate networks - 1 for all my home devices and 1 for our work devices.  Reason being is our work devices have a fair amount of network snooping software on them.

 

Only device that would need access to both networks is my printer.  If I were to connect it to one network via Wi-Fi and then the other by Ethernet, would that work?  I've never tried a dual network setup using this particular printer.

@cdcd33, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

No, this setup will not work. The printer cannot simultaneously be connected to wifi and ethernet. You can use either of them at a time. However, you may connect the printer using a USB cable to one of the computers and also connect it wirelessly to a network and connect it to another computer.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
