Discussion: Brother Printer - Wifi and Wired

Guys, I need your help to figure this out. A. Both printer MFC were working OK and on wifi network since 7/17/2019 B. John's printer quit working over wifi and Karen's printer is still working ok QUESTION: 1) Karen's printer is working OK on the wifi network: and we can ping all other on the same subnet 2) From John's machine and we have not been able to ping anything other than the DNS: We tried and had the printer set DHCP or 62 but we couldn't ping/working. 3) From John's laptop, we can scan to the network share folder but can not print. 4) I tried everyone's else methods; change window firewall rules etc..etc, and I did not have any luck to put John's on the wifi -----> Put his printer on the WIRED and everything is working for him now (scan/printing) -> (printer is getting DHCP and we can ping anything on the same subnet)
