This was an issue in the earlier releases of the controller code but should work with the later versions. It has to do with how packets were routed through the controller with dynamic interfaces. Depending on the version of code you are running the way to put wired and wireless on the same VLAN is to use the management interface.

How are your printers shared? You may want to try creating another another WIRED vlan and ensure that both wired vlans can access shared printers across the wired vlans.

share printer thus wire vlan and browse to printer by direct. if i used wired vlan can access share printer normally but if used wireless thus controller that can't share. please you advise me.

What is issuing IP addresses to the Wireless users? If you use the WLC DHCP server I have seen this problem before, try a different DHCP server on the domain to issue addresses and try again.

Also are you trying to access the devices by IP Address or DNS? Can the users/WLC ping the printers? Do you have the correct DNS server specified in the dynamic interface?

Few bits to ponder. Hope this helps.
