I am having an issue using airprint to connect to the printer (HL-L8350CDW) on my network.
Actually it is a much bigger issue than that, my wife cannot print to the printer from her iphone (like she was able to usually before I purchased a "better" expensive $500 router).

RT-AX88U FW 384.18 on local network.
Printer is connected via wifi to the network and has a fixed ip address. Printer can be connected to via http panel. Prints from my window pc fine connected ( using the latest windows driver (6.3.9600.16384).

I have tried everything in sequence and individually as indicated in a number of posts that seemed to share similar issues.

-Airtime Fairness: Disable ===> Prime suspect alas no joy
-Modulation Scheme: Up to MCS 9 (802.11ac)
-Multi-User MIMO: Disable
-Explicit Beamforming: Disable
-Universal Beamforming (5 GHz only): Disable
As per Matt S comment who was also using a RT-AX88U --> disable "Target Wake time"

Similar connectivity issue (different application) - with check list to above This reddit post pointed me to a discovery app of bonjour services running on the network

Using this discovery app I can see an alexa, apple, and google device on my network but not printer service (each of these are also connected via wifi to fixed ips).

Does anyone have any further suggestions?

Thank you.
