Hi @GeorgeHap,

 

I'd like to help!

 

Is the printer connected wirelessly or via wifi direct?

Do you see two printer in the devices and printers tab?

Have you installed the full-featured drivers on your computer?

 

USB and wireless will work together, we just have to make sure to add the printer to your computer.

 

Wi-Fi Direct: The method you are using now. It connects the printer directly to your phone/computer. The drawback of this type of connection is that you will not be able to access the internet and print at the same time.

 
Wireless: In this method, the printer and the device are connected to a common network (router) so that you can access the internet and print at the same time.

 

Let me know!
