Multiple access points with same SSID causes problems

In my house I have two wireless routers on my network both with the same SSID/password.  I have two Canon Pixma printers that are both having the same problem.  When I set up the printers, I chose "multiple access points" and there was no problem connecting the printer to the network.  However, when I try to print from devices that are connected to a different router/access point than what the printer is connected to, the device can not find the printer on the network.  When I unplug one of the routers so that I force all of the devices to connect to the same router as the printer, I have no problems.


What can I do so that I can print from devices that are not connected to the same access point as the printer?  Everything is on the same network so it should not matter what router they are connected to.  Any help would be appreciated.
