Printer not reachable if network is meshed.

If I use a single AP,printer works fine.

 

if I use 2 APs as meshed gateways with same ssid, printer is not reachable.

 

Meraki go security gateway, Meraki go switch, 2 Meraki go AP’s

 

HP laser printer

 

APs are in bridge mode

 

1 wireless network with both APs broadcasting.

 

Any ideas.

 

right now, until I figure out the problem, I only have 1 AP broadcasting my wireless network.  Printer works if I do that.  If I broadcast from the second AP, printer not reachable.

In the Meraki cloud management software the printer shows up as some random 8 diget host name.  In the meraki cloud software I renamed the printer to the bonjour name (the bonjur name is what the PCs look for) and I was able to turn on the mesh network and print.

 

I am also able to see the printer in network neighborhood.
