Remember what I posted earlier - the printer will not work as expected if you set up using a USB connection…

Even if did work Ken, it would just jam and screw up your paper.
Printers are evil, vindictive things and just increase stress levels...

I currently have two printers working over wi-fi, no issues.

In fact, I've used wi-fi since around 2010, never had any problems with it.

That seems a bit like a plumber saying he would not use taps as hes had 100's of callouts to them with issues.

You get the same result as wifi with a networked printer plugged into the router which is my preferred method

Re: Wireless printer

My printer is wired to my PC, but I can print from my tablet/iPad/phone over WiFi to it using the App.

All work equally as well.

Re: Wireless printer

The Great Paper chewers don't care if you're wired or on WiFi. It's all fair game to them, particularly if its a boarding pass you need in a hurry....

Re: Wireless printer

Interesting. I have an HP multi function printer that we bought about five years ago. It connected perfectly via wifi with PC, laptop, and various Apple devices, first time, and has never dropped connection or had a paper jam despite printing hundreds of pages.
