1. A non-transitory computer-readable recording medium storing computer-readable instructions for a communication device,
wherein the computer-readable instructions, when executed by a processor of the communication device, cause the communication device to:
in a case where a first wireless communication with an external device is executed via a first wireless interface of the communication device, determine whether a specific signal including parent station information is received from the external device via a second wireless interface of the communication device, the second wireless interface being different from the first wireless interface, the parent station information indicating that an operation state of the external device is a state in which the external device operates as a parent station of a wireless network; and
supply a communication instruction to the second wireless interface in a case where it is determined that the specific signal including the parent station information is received, the communication instruction being for executing a second wireless communication with the external device via the second wireless interface, the second wireless communication including a communication for participating as a child station in the wireless network in which the external device operates as the parent station, wherein the communication instruction is not supplied to the second wireless interface in a case where it is determined that the specific signal including the parent station information is not received.
