Range extender printing issue

Hi All, 

Just connected a tplink wa701nd range extender to the plusnet hub.  Works fine except Ipad cannot print to Hp printer using Hp Smart app when connected via extender.  No printing issue when range extender is off.   Can't find any settings that might resolve this.  

 

Would appreciate any help with this. 

Thanks

Rod

Has the extender got same ssid as router?
Try changing extenders to something different & see if your pad software finds it.

Ps.  The set up of the extender only ask for ssid and mac address of the'root AP'.  It does not have a field for an alternative ssid for the extender.

You may need to ferret around; it may be in ADVANCED SETTINGS or something similar.
My TP Link certainly has it.
