[VMG8825-B50B] Wireless printer stops functioning all of a sudden

I have had a wireless Brother printer (DCP-L2530DW) connected to my VMG8825-B50B router without any problems for over 6 months. All of a sudden my computers can't print to it through the router.

The printer and the router are connected (the printer has an IP address and I can ping it from the admin interface), and the computer is connected to the same wifi network (no guest network or similar). 

I have used the Brother connection tool, and I have also tried to add it directly through the computer (tried both Mac and PC) printer settings tools - but it says the computer can't find or can't control the printer. 

The router has the latest firmware and I can't find anything within the settings that would disallow any device access to another device.

    Did you put any new devices in your network?

    No, nothing new. What would be an example of a device that could interfere? 

    I do have a wifi extender, and I tried removing that as well, to make sure it didn't interfere. Didn't help.

    Hi oahnve and SAMJOSEPH

    If you said there has a IP with the printer can you ping to the IP from you computer?

    Since it has been working for 6 months before. If you try from the very beging, clean all the seeting on printer. And re-configration the pritner again, will it help?
