Printing through Wirless Network

Unanswered Question
Mar 13th, 2010

Dear All,

i have the following problem ...

we have printers on local network 192.168.100.XXX ....<-- DHCP is disables

our Cisco Wirless LAN Controller is on different network 192.168.105.XXX .... <-- DHCP enabled

the wirless device is connected to the local network switch so its having the same gateway as the local network.

How can I enable printing through wireless.

awaiting your prompt feedback guys.

I have this problem too.

I'm no expert of the make and model of your printer but can your printer "print" from two different networks?  What wireless configurations have you done to the printer?

heey there ,,,

that's the problem am facing ... i have an HP Printer but no wireless option is there ...

but i was  thinking that since the two networks have the same GW ... there might be a way of allowing wireless users to print through local printers.

i hope this is clear ...

so can what configuration i have to enable any wirless user to print through local printers.

Printer doesn't have wireless !!

i am not trying to give you a hard time but i really need your help in this.

I agree with Leo.... if your 3560 has no L3 or you don't have routing configured to pass traffic from one subnet to another, your wireless users will be isolated from the rest of the network.  Maybe just put the wireless in the same subnet as the printers and switch and be done with it.

Nice colorful fonts:)
