Losing file sharing when moving to wireless
Posted on 2005-05-07
I have a SMC Barricade G Router with one desktop pc connected directly, one desktop on wireless and a laptop. When the laptop is connected using a wired connection all is great. However, when I move the laptop to a wireless connection, the laptop loses access to devices in my workgroup including file sharing and printer sharing. The internet connection still works great, just no file sharing.
The wireless card in the PC (the one that works) is a Microsoft card, the card in the laptop is a Netgear WG511 v1
One more thing that may be useful: I can ping the other computers when connected directly but NOT when working wirelessly.
