Re: Wifi for internet, LAN for printing only?
Let assume your 'old' wired network is 192.168.1.0 and your 'new' wireless network is 192.168.2.0, just as examples.
If your wired adapter is a static address in 192.168.1.0, say 192.168.1.50 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and no default gateway then it will only use 192.168.1.0 for local traffic.
If your wireless adapter is in 192.168.2.0, has a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and the default gateway is the IP of your wireless router (DHCP works fine for this case) then all traffic outside your local network will use the wireless.
One warning, once you install a wireless router in your office, anyone may connect to it by accident. (and will)
