WiFi Router - can't edit connected devices list

I've recently changed ISP and got new router, I connected my printer via WiFi to router but have now changed my mind and only want printer connected to desktop pc via its own WiFi.

I thought it would be simple but there seems to be no way on my NowTV Hub Two to remove any Wireless device once it's been added. All the info I can find entails changing the password and then having to redo connecting all the other devices.

I'm wondering, are all routers like this now?

When you need to remove a saved wireless network then it's done from the device itself and not the router. It's always been like that.

In your situation, remove the printer from your device then add a new printer and instead connect to the "WiFi Direct" (or whatever your printer manufacturer calls it) network.

Not got sorted yet. When I scan and save I get a duplicate file saved, don't know what that's all about...

Uninstalled printer and it's software completely and reinstalled it from scratch. All is now in order :)
