The connection above is machine -> wireless repeater -> wap -> router
If I make a wired connection from the machine directly to the router then I get the expected result from avahi-browse.
Given that iPhones and windows machines can see mdns services via the wireless repeater, it cannot be blocking mdns, so what is stopping avahi from working as expected when connected to the wireless repeater?
Note that the underlying reason I need this to work is so the machine can print as a cups-1.6 client (the iPhones and windows machines can print without problems)
