This is more of a question than an answer.
Assuming you have a dual-band router, could you put the Printer on a second network and not broadcast the SSID?
That plus password protection should prevent their access.

I ask because my networking knowledge is limited; what I have read suggests to me that you could do this, but I could be way wrong.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
