Hello, I am having a printing problem that I can not figure out.
I have a Xerox 8570N. I can not print to the printer when I am using a wirless bridge. The printer is in a location that does not have a wired network. There is also a Ricoh 4100 in the same wireless. The Ricoh works just fine.
I have the Xerox, the Ricoh and a TP-Link 801ND access point connected to a 5 port gib switch. The Access point is in client mode. I can print from any computer to the Ricoh but when I try to print to the Xerox, I get a connection error. Some times on the Xerox display, I will see the message "Dupliate IP address detected". I know for sure that there is no conflict. I have also tried DHCP on the Xerox. The Xerox will get an IP from the router just fine. The Xerox printer is not pingable.
To test, I run a cat5 from the main switch to the 5 port that the printers are connected to and I have no problems printing to the Xerox. All issues go away. As soon as I remove the cat5 and use the access point the printing stops. I have also tried other Access Points with no lunk.
I would like to find out what the wireless is blocking that the Xerox printer is looking for.
in my opinion you should be looking at the device you are using to get the Xerox device a wireless device. what are you using to achieve this?
