I have some wireless clients on IP 192.168.0.xx  -  I need them to connec to the server on ip address, i need to know what rights to assign to those users because using the administrator account i have no problems accessing the shares, but not from the clients. Clients are part of the domain users group.  Now, if i set the wireless clients to the ip of 10.0.0.x they can connect no problem to the shares.  I'm missing something, and i need to know what it is, can you help me out?  Please?

    192.168.0.x wont talk to unless you have a route in place.  You should try this -

    on a client machine open a dos box and type this -

    route add -p mask 192.168.0.x

    (where it has x you should use match the machines own IP address).
