It's working well but can anyone tell me why IP 126.96.36.199 appears regularly in the list of Active Clients on my AP and it's coming from my CB (same MAC address) ?
Cause CB is not a true transparent bridge.
I wouldn't worry too much about it if it works for you
Here is an 'old pic' I have of wrt160NL CB to wndr3700v4.
The MAC address is showing correct (static lease) IP of device connected to CB, and the 188.8.131.52, and also a generic IP.
Never know what may show in different builds using CB.... as I said it's just a hack anyways.
You will find many things don't work correctly 'two-way' behind a CB for reasons I mentioned...... It's good for many things but Not good for just about as many.
Printer problem --- I'll suggest go in control panel to printer/properties and set it to use regular TCP IP port....whatever it's IP is. Might give it a static IP in you main router. Don't know how well that'll work but it is what I would try if using client bridge.
Someone else may have better idea.
Another option....If your routers are compatible you can bridge them using WDS.
