Why can my PC only connect to wireless printer via WiFi?

My computer can connect to my wireless printer when I connect to the network via WiFi, but it can't connect to the printer when the computer is connected to the router with an Ethernet cable. A fresh OS install solves this problem, but the problem keeps happening again after a couple months or so. Does anyone have an idea of what could cause this kind of problem?

Hello @Calrissian45,


I can definitely relate to the issue of the printer not wanting to behave.  With your assistance we can find the information require to resolve this.


May I ask what type of printer do you have?  


I look forward to assisting you. Have a wonderful day!
