When my printer was set up wirelessly, I couldn't get it to print when connected with a usb cable. I recently unplugged and moved the printer. It's wireless settings all disappeared. I'd like to set it up wirelessly again, but I don't want to lose the capacity to print using the usb cable.
The only reason I really need the wireless feature is that I'm signed up for instant ink and this is how the printer notifies HP that I need more ink. I prefer printing with the USB cable because it is more reliable.
Can I have my cake and eat it too?
