SXR80- Guest Wifi - Access to Printer in Main Wifi

Hello everyone,

I have my main wifi configured in wireless1, and I also have the guest wifi set up. Is it possible to allow guest to access a specific device on the main wifi? For example a printer? I'd like to give guests the ability to print, is there any "magic" routing that we can do to make that happen?

 

Thanks a lot,

 

Joao.

Just for one device ... probably not, to my knowledge, Netgear does still not want to understand why we asked for allow adding granular firewall rules a looong time ago already. The convenience approach would be to enable mDNS allow spanning over multiple VLANs - inheriting more risks than typically intended, see for example here

Hi @jcharnet,

 

You can also check the product SW manual for more information about mDNS and make sure your ORBI network is up to date.

 

 

Kind regards,

Hi @jcharnet,,

 

Were you able to check and setup mDNS in your ORBI router to make your printer available in your other VLAN?

 


Kind regards,
