Network with Router and Access Point

So our network has a router and an access point.  Some computers connect to the router and some connect to the access point.

Is there any way I can set it up so that all the computers can see each other?

I ended up, through this thread:

Solving it by all computers leaving the HomeGroup, creating a new HomeGroup on the 1 Windows 8 machine we have, and then having all the computers joining it and everything seems to be working now.

I assume you're saying that the wireless computers can't see the wireless?

If so, do you have a server?  A domain?
Make sure all the computers are on the same domain.  Also, make sure the access point is on the domain.

Looks like I need to do some homework.

We do not have a server or a domain.  I want any laptop to see any other laptop or desktop on the network.  For instance, one of my computers is named GOLD, so other computers can bring up files by having the path \\GOLD\.  That's all working fine for the computers attached to the router, but not those connected to the Access Point.

Right now I think they can share because they are in the same HomeGroup.

I assume you have a dhcp set on router/ AP.  When you get IP from dhcp on router or AP, is that range a same?
