Need help accessing printer on different subnet...

    I’ve been using Shibby’s v101 for a couple weeks now and it’s great!

    However, I can't seem to get the access to an IP printer setup correctly...
    I have three subnets:
    • – Users (LAN)
    • – Cameras (LAN1)
    • – Guest (LAN2)
    I have the Users (LAN) configured to access both the Cameras (LAN1) and Guest (LAN2) subnets.

    Devices on the Users (LAN) can successfully view the cameras on LAN1, however they can't see/access the IP printer on LAN2…

    I’m thinking this can be done by reviewing step 7 of an article ( on setup VLANS.

    See image from above referenced article below; note defined printer access...


    Any help would be appreciated.
    Here’s my E4200's configuration below…

    According to your screenshots, these are not your subnets, and maybe that is where your confusion/problem lies. You've mixed up your octets. Your screenshots indicate your subnets are: (e.g. netmask = associated with interface br0 (e.g. netmask = associated with interface br1 (e.g. netmask = associated with interface br2

    And that your router itself uses the following 3 IPs on each respective subnet: = associated with interface br0 = associated with interface br1 = associated with interface br2

    Just want to clear that up for you and others reading. I can't help with the rest, sorry.

    You'd need to link subnets with static routes. How does your Advanced > Routing currently look?

    Yeah... That should read:
    • – Users (LAN)
    • – Cameras (LAN1)
    • – Guest (LAN2)
    I don't have any static routes defined. However, that hasn't stopped me from accessing the cameras on LAN1..
    What would the static route your suggesting look like?
    My routing looks like this ...
