DLink DSL-G604T Bonjour issues

It seems that the D-Link DSL-G604T wireless router has serious problems with Bonjour.

I have just purchased a network printer, which is automatically discovered over the network using bonjour. This technology is really great.

The printer connects by ethernet. One computer connects by ethernet – it works fine. The other computer connects by wireless, and it doesn’t.

To make things more strange, the wireless computer can ping the printer. But it won’t discover it over bonjour. If I connect the second computer via an ethernet cable and turn off the wireless connection, then everything works perfectly.

I read a similar story on the whirlpool forums where that router had a problem with music sharing between wired and wireless computers, and apparently the problem was fixed by a firmware upgrade for the router.

Not so lucky for me. I downloaded the latest firmware, and the same problem still exists.

If anyone has heard of how to solve this problem, please do tell.
