Hi all, I have a Canon Pixma iP7250 printer and two desktop computers both on Windows 7. When I tried to connect via wifi I eventually gave up as it failed to establish a connection. The method chosen was as per Canon instructions and holding in the WPS button on my EE router. I then resorted to my previous method via USB which was successful. So my question is, can I connect the other desktop machine via wifi without messing up the already established USB connection and have the best of both worlds. I don't want to just dive in and try in case it screws things up.

TIA

My old Epson R2880 had two USB ports.

yes, you can connect multiple devices via the wifi, including phones tablets etc

I prefer to use USB but use Wifi for the portable devices


hope this helps

Thanks, Darren. I really hoped wifi was available on the computer as sod's law there is always something I want to print on it and end up saving to a stick and transferring to other USB connected computer lol.
