New Lenovo Thinkpad laptop with Win10 Pro v1909 connected WIRELESSLY to a home office peer network.
Laptop connected to a NAS and a Unix server with no difficulty, but couldn't connect to any printers. One printer is an HP LaserJet with a static IP address. The other is a is a shared HP USB connected inkjet printer.
Neither printer's installer could see the target printer. The LaserJet was neither pingable nor could I connect to its webserver with a browser.
An older Windows 7 laptop, also connected wirelessly, has no difficulty printing to either of the printers.
The laptop gets it's IP address via DHCP. It's on the same network as all the other devices on, hence its ability to connect to the NAS and the UNIX server.
It's been driving me nuts...then I wa finally able to connect it to the network with a wire. Presto...both printers installed as expected. Went back to a wireless connection and the printers were unreachable again, as expected.
Why? ALL network properties for both the wireless and ethernet adapters are exactly the same. Network and Sharing options all all the same on a Private network.
What am I missing?
