Printing from both Primary and Secondary Networks

Product Name: WorkCentre 6515
Operating System: Windows 10 x64

Hi 

I am looking  to be able to print from both Primary and Secondary Networks. Firstly I set up the printer via a Ethernet and have sucssessfully printed documents. I have now set up the WIFI connection and changed it to be the primary network and have also sucssessfully printed documents. However now if i go back to print on the Ethernet Network it does not work. If I then switch back to the Ethernet being the primary it will then print via the ethernet but not the Wireless.

Setup, Sky Router down stairs to which the printer is conecting to wirelessly. From the sky router i have a ethernet cable to a TP link router (upstairs) which the printer is conected to via ethernet cable. 

Let me know if what im trying to do is even possable. 

Thanks!

Re: Printing from both Primary and Secondary Networks

Yeah, you should just be able to print from Either one, Primary is just the network it uses to get out (Scanning) and doesn't at all relate to information coming in.

You are not using the same IP address for both connections are you?

Re: Printing from both Primary and Secondary Networks

I'm sorry there isn't much more I can add though. With everyone work from home, I simply don't have access to a printer to test across two LANs. They are all in test labs, so if you are on a VPN you can't access the local WiFi to test and troubleshoot
