Question Installing network printer directly over LAN port while having open wifi connection


Hello, I recently installed ubuntu 8.10 and have been trying to install my old network printer, a Kyocera Mita FS-3800, directly through the lan port while having my wifi connection open for internet access and haven't been able to do that. In older versions of ubuntu I just could set turn the wired connection's "Roaming" off but now it seems to be different.
I've tried using dhcp, dhcp only, Link-Local only and shared other computers to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thank you

I believe your wireless NIC and wired NIC will have to be in different subnets. What is the output of ifconfig? Also, you may need a crossover cable to go direct from your computer's ethernet port to a printer.

I thought it could've been the cable too but I managed to get it working on Windows Vista perfectly so that may not be the reason i think.

Well, you'll have to assign an IP address to whichever interface you want to use and also to the printer.

sorry for late reply, computer was dead so I had to fix it. I've tried assigning the IP address the problem is I haven't been able to find out how to connect to both, wireless and wired, networks at the same time. Right now if I choose the printer connection I lose the wireless one and therefore internet access. It used to be pretty straight forward in older ubuntu versions, just take roaming mode off and it was done.
