My wife and I have two iPhones (an X and an 8+), two iPad Mini 4 and two iMacs. We have Verizon Fios and a Verizon router in our home which are dual band (2.4 and 5 GHZ). I also have an Epson XP-830 printer that is AirPrint capable but will only see/connect to the 2.4 GHZ signal from the router.
None of the iOS devices will only see/connect to the printer unless they are on the 2.4GHZ Wifi signal (which is much slower so would prefer to connect everything to the 5GHZ band).
But both iMacs - whether they are connected to the 2.4 or 5 Wifi signal can see and print to the printer.
Any ideas why this is happening and how to solve the issue with the iPhone/iPad?

Thanks but absolutely no help. As I said the iOS devices have no problems connecting to either the 2.4 or 5GHZ signals. The issue is the printer - like most Wifi printers - can't see/connect to the 5GHZ signal that I would prefer to use for all my devices. So why can I print to the computer from my computer that is constantly connected to the 5GHZ connection, but I can't from any of our iOS devices.
