MR62 Mesh and HP WiFi Printer

Hi all... I have an HP ENVY 5660 WiFi printer that refuses to work with my new MR62 mesh system.  Everything else on the network works perfectly.  If I unplug the satellite (located about eight feet from the printer), it works just fine; but when the satellite is connected, the printer often disappears from my PC, sometimes prints properly, and never allows me to scan a document from the printer to my PC.  Again, with the satellite unplugged, it works perfectly.  Is there any configuration on the mesh system I need to adjust for better functionality of the printer (subnet, etc.)?

Thanks in advance,

 

Dave

Re: MR62 Mesh and HP WiFi Printer

Are you leaving the printer off the network and just connecting to it when you want to print? 

If you connect it to the network, you can set it up as a network printer. 

Current Setup: CM2000-> RBK750-> GS716v2-> RAXE500-> Pi-hole->

No, it's powered on and connected to the network 24/7 as a network printer.

 

Cheers,

Dave
