Re: how to change from wireless to usb

It partly depends upon your OS, and how you need to use it. 

 

However, you will definitely need to connect the printer to host computer that has the proper printer drivers installed.  You may need an internet connection to download the proper drivers, if you do not have any software CDs that came with the printer.  The host computer can either use the printer directly, or the porinter can be shared across your local LAN, with or without internet connection.

I have the drivers installed on my laptop and it works wireless. It just doesn't work with the usb cord if wireless is turned off

The drivers would have to be reinstalled in order to switch from one connection to another.
