Question about HP DeskJet 6988 Printer
Is the printer software installed on the laptops? Are you trying to print from the laptop itself, or a phone or tablet?
Sounds like from what you said the devices are on the network, but they still need the correct software to communicate with each other.
Try to use a smartphone and install the HP mobile printing app, if that app is able to find your printer, it is indeed on the network correctly.
If you can print from the phone/tablet, but not the laptops, you need to install the software drivers for your printer to your laptop(s) you wish to print from.
Here is a link to the Windows Drivers

I discussed this with an HP tech & worked on the solution myself to verify his answer &, of course, he was right!
Your printer will only recognize one connection: either wireless or hardwired but NOT both. That is why it keeps switching back to hardwired mode.

Think I have sorted this one out. Download FULL drivers package (I went through HP printer diagnostics to get to this). When main install screen appears select 'ADD Device' and follow it through - my B110a now works perfectly, and wirelessly for both printing and scanning. Hope this solves your problem.
