I have a 5th generation Airport Time Capsule as my primary router, and a 4th generation Airport Time Capsule in bridge mode, connected via cat5. When I connect my printer (a Brother HL-3040CN) to the 4th gen via USB, it's visible on the network and works fine. When I connect it by cat5 to one of the 4th gen's LAN ports, however, even though it seems to appear in the Bonjour list, from the 5th gen WiFi network I get "the printer is not responding". (This is after deleting it in the Printers and Scanners control panel and re-adding it as a new printer.)
Also suspicious is that when I try to ping the Bonjour address,
brn001ba94e93ac.local, I get an IP address in the
192.168 range, even though the rest of my LAN is
So I guess my questions are:
- is this a configuration that should work?
- why is the printer showing up as a Bonjour device if I can't connect to it?
- why is the Bonjour address mapped to an IP on a nonexistent subnet?
Edited to add: Ping and traceroute both fail, and iNet Network Scanner shows it under "Bonjour browser" but not under "Network scanner".
