Problems with 2nd router as wireless access point

I have an old zyxel router configured as a wireless access point connected to my BT smart hub via powerline adaptors. The zyxel router is configured in bridge mode with DHCP disabled  IP address of zyxel router is 192.168.1.2, smart hub is 192.168.1.254.

 

Both routers have the same wireless security settings /SSID but are on different channels  

 

This works well with devices seamlessly switching between the 2 wifi networks, except for one problem. After a device moves from the zyxel wifi to the smart hub wifi, I cannot connect from it to most of the local devices with a wired connection to the smart hub. I can connect to the internet  and the missing devices are available from other wired devices. After several minutes the missing devices become available  

 

Any ideas?
