Since doing a bit of subnetting on one of our sites we've been experiencing odd issues with the two wireless printers (yes, I know) that have been moved to the VLAN dedicated for printers. We can see the printers in cloud management and are perfectly able to ping them both from a test laptop on the same VLAN and from Meraki, but attempting to access the printers from the corporate VLAN has been spotty at best. We were intermittently able to ping both devices across VLANs and even print, but overnight that stopped working (Power save? Possibly - but restarting the printers did not make them recover).
I am sure there are a number of possible reasons for this, but I would really like to get to the bottom of this before I cave and allow the printers to stay on the main subnet until they can be coerced into getting proper wired printers.
Access points are all MR44. Things we've tried:
- Limit to 2.4 GHz, all fancy wireless features removed
- Static or DHCP (with and without reservation)
- Firewall bypass
Any suggestions appreciated.
