MFP 6515 does not scan via WIFI

Hi,

 

need some advise.

 

Bought a 6515 a while ago and the setup has been done. Can do everything I want so far, but only via LAN connection. The machine has gotten separate IP addresses for both LAN and WIFI.

 

Whenever I remove the LAN cable, restart the machine and try to scan via WIFI either to a NAS or to an email address scanning fails. However, printing is no problem via WIFI.

 

Spend already hours to get it working. Any good hint for a baffled user?

 

Best regards

You will need to wireshark trace to find out why it doesn't work, the printer itself doesn't care if it's WiFi or wired.

 

What is likely the case is that the gateway is different, or the DNS doesn't work (if using hostname in scan)

Hi Joe,
without having used wireshark: gateway as well as DNS ich completely governed by DHCP of the router.

Any other hint then using wireshark? Thanks.

The fact DHCP populates it doesn't matter, what matters is that the WiFi DHCP and the Wired DHCP are the same or are bridged.

 

Wireshark is advanced , I can't teach it here, especially when I can't possibly know what any IP it finds could be anyway.

 

If it works on Wired but not Wireless, then the LANs are the issue, not the device.
