Hi All, I recently upgraded to an MX router and for whatever reason, I lost the ability to access the EWS of my HP printers by their hostname, but only on Macs (not on PCs). Previously I was using a non-Meraki router. For example, one of the printer's hostname is HP80C1F3, and I used to be able to access the EWS by visiting https://hp80c1f3 from a browser. With the MX router, this now only works on PCs. Attempting to do this on a Mac instantly brings me a "Safari can't find the server" page (and same result on all other browsers). It doesn't even wait a few seconds, it just instantly fails. This seems to be the default behavior with MX routers but it's really annoying that on PCs, this just works but doesn't work on Macs. My network is super simple, out of the box default settings. Has anyone ever encountered this or has any ideas?

Hello, I have a Meraki MR55 at the office with an SSID setup as bridge mode. I have a couple HP printers that are all the same model, which all support AirPrint. For some reason, every morning when I come to the office, the printers are not inaccessible via Bonjour. I cannot print via AirPrint (printer shows as offline) or access their configuration page via Bonjour domain name (i.e. https://npic62da0.local). I can, however, reach them by direct IP address. If I restart the AP, the printers immediately become accessible via Bonjour. They will then proceed to work flawlessly for the rest of the day, until the next morning. During the time that the printers are inaccessible, Windows machines are able to communicate just fine with the printers as they connect by IP. As a test, I made one of the printers connect by wire. That morning, I can access the wired printer via Bonjour domain name just fine, while the wireless printers continued to be inaccessible until I restarted the AP. I did a lot of tests but couldn't find anything. Nothing strange in the logs. The wireless frequency channel doesn't change. No interference. We also have an Apple TV at the office and because AirPlay uses Bonjour, it also is not accessible in the mornings. Before we got this Meraki AP, we had a different wireless AP from Cisco and we never had this issue. They both had the same SSID settings. Please someone shed some light into this extremely annoying mystery.
