Does the Officejet 8630 have a wireless chip and how do I remove it if it does?

Need to install this printer an a location that does not allow wireless capabilities.  Does this printer have a removable wireless chip, where is it?  How can I remove it? 

 

Thanks!

Most likely the wireless transceiver is built into the main board.  Trying to remove anything would make the printer useless and would fail power up self test. 

 

However, using the Ethernet cable in back totally disables the Wireless function of the printer.
