I have an office with 7 laptops (wirelessly connected)
DHCP is issued by a local Win Server 2008 R2 DC (also GC)

The laptops have full wireless connection, internet works and pinging/connecting to the servers resources works fine.

The laptops cannot ping one another, nor can they access any shares.

I have attached and shared a printer to one of the laptops that I want all the other laptops to connect to.

I have tried flushing, registering DNS, I've checked DNS settings and confirm they are correct.

Any ideas?

Hi,

Perform a ipconfig /all from 2 machines and compare both are in same subnet and getting the correct DNS.

Also, check the windows firewall service. Usually the service will be started. If already started, can you stop it and check?

Please check the wireless router, there are settings which rescricts communication between devices within wireless lan zone.

Could you advice what wireless ap/router are you using.

Wow, did not think to check the router.
Thanks, WiFi was configured to prevent client to client connections.
Disabled the setting and is now working as desired.

Thanks
