Wired devices can't connect to the wifi printer on the Velop wifi network

Hi,

 

 I think I have seen variations of this ... devices on the wired router network can't connect to devices on the Velop wifi network..

 

I have an HP Envy printer that worked fine when wired and wifi were on the same router, but now wifi is the Velop network, wired devices cannot connect to the printer (they can 'see' the printer and IP address, just can't connect).

 

Am I missing something simple to resolve this?

 

Thanks, Chris

Hi,

 

I solved this. The problem that that in bridge mode, I was passing the connection to the internet through the 'master' Velop node.; i.e. modem router - Velop router node - switch - wired network

 

This is what was causing the issues. I connected both the switch and Velop router node (in bridge mode) to the modem router ... all the wired devices can now find the wireless printer.

 

Thanks, Chris
