Problems Bridging Wired/Wirelss Networks in AP Mode

I setup my R7000 in AP mode, (latest firmware), and both of my printers are connected wirelessly to my home network via Xerox WNA-100s.

If my laptop is connected to my home network wirelessly via the R7000, then I can print, (and also see the printer's management webpage), without issue. If I connect to my home network via wired ethernet, I can't. Can't print, can't see the printer. (BTW, this only started happening with the new R7000, not with previous wireless APs)

Since it's in AP mode, the R7000 is connected to my home network via one of it's internal ethernet switch ports, (actually port 1), and NOT the yellow WAN port, labelled "Internet". Is there some setting in the R7000 that I need to enable to have traffic bridge correctly from the wired ethernet port to the wireless network?

Thanks,

Jason

Actual AP mode in R7000 used Internet port part of connection.

Only time you use LAN to LAN ports you will use traditional access point setup

My bad.

After posting my message I went back through the Advanced section of the R7000 management webpage, and I noticed on the Wireless AP mode page it instructs to connect the R7000 to the network via the "Internet" port. Once I did that, I was able to see the printers on the wireless part of the network without issue.

Thanks,

Jason
