I have installed a second router on a LAN, configured as a switch/access point only, i.e. I have turned off DHCP on the 2nd router, and am using the LAN ports only, as a means of setting up a second wireless/SSID in an office about 60 feet away from the main router. (Windows networking environment). The WAN port on the 2nd router is not used at all.
I've done this many times, and any computer that connects to the 2nd wireless gets an IP address fine from the main router, and sees the entire network no matter which wireless they are connected to.
When I connect an iPad to the main router's wireless, it sees two HP printers that I can print to. When I connect to the 2nd wireless, it says there are no printers found.
What would account for this strange behavior?
