Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
The MFC-J470DW should be able to be printed to as a wireless/WiFi printer, yes.

Two different computers can print to it as a wireless printer, yes.

The details of the setup depend on whether you have a WiFi internet router locally.

Let me know whether you need details of how to setup both or either computer(s) to do this. And I will provide instructions, or if you wish, remotely control either or both computers - provided they are Windows PCs.
