VR1600v cannot access wired IP printer off LAN switch

Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 0.1.0 0.9.1 v5006.0 Build 200810 Rel.53181n

Laptop and android mobile phone with wireless connection to VR1600v cannot access a Brother wired network printer connecting off a LAN switch.  However, both laptop and mobile wi-fi connected to TP-Link RE305 extender can access the same printer on the LAN switch.
 

 

VR1600v --- TP-Link RE305 wifi extender

                --- Linksys SE4008AU Giga Switch --- Brother wired ip printer

 

When laptop & mobile wireless connected to VR1600v, cannot access Brother printer.  But when laptop & mobile wireless connected via RE305 extender, then working fine.  It is working fine when laptop is wire connected to the VR1600v or wire connecting to the Linksys switch. 

 

Prior to moving to iiNet as NBN provider with this Archer VR1600v gateway router, was on Bigpond cable with Netgear CG3100D that everything was working with the same peripherals setup.

 

Sounds like some problem with layer-2 switching on VR1600v between wifi connected devices and other devices on LAN switch.

Hi, I would like to follow up on your case by email.

Could you please help me check for more details:

1. Were you able to ping the Brother printer when you are wirelessly connected to the VR1600v?—some screenshots would be highly appreciated.

2. Have you enabled the guest network on the VR1600v before?

 

Thank you very much.
