Hi gang --

I have an AT&T-supplied NVG599 router, which has a guest network set up for my Airbnb visitors to use.  I bought a Xerox Phaser 6022 printer that I was going to put in the Airbnb unit--it supports both Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print so seemed like the easiest option for guests to use--but for the life of me I cannot get the printer to connect to the guest network.  Admittedly the whole point of the guest SSID is that users can't access anything else on my network, but I assume there must be some way to make this work.

At the moment the printer will connect wirelessly to my home network and everything works fine.  If I connect it to the guest SSID (192.168.2.2) it isn't recognized by anything else that connects to the guest network.  Desktop PC, iPad, nothin'.

Anybody have any ideas?  And bear in mind I'm an idiot so feel free to treat me like one.

Thanks!

Guests wifi usually cannot communicate with each other or communicate with your private. Best solution is to use e-print. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJtLrug1AwM
