5Ghz home wireless network and 2.4 required for printer

Any idea whether I simply can't use this printer without hardwiring (ethernet/USB)? I had an older 6500 that still printed when we switched to the new wireless router.

NO, if you want to print wirelessly you will need to use only 2,4GHz wireless because that's the only wi-fi band printer supports.
