RAX80 setup as access point some devices don't see SSID

RAX80 setup as access point some devices don't see SSID.  Iphones or pads see and can connect to the SSID (either 2.4 or 5), but printer and IP cameras don't see SSID (either speed).  Printer and cameras can connect to the main router but have poor connection due to distance. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Hi Ronr2 - Have you gotten a chance to change the wireless channels on your router?

I'm not sure why changing channels would matter since some devices can access the WiFi not.  Two of the devices that cannot are 802.11n, but the documentation says the RAX80 is n compatable.  I'm not where I can access the router right now, but I wanted to understand the logic of changing channels.

Thanks for the suggestion.
