Vista Wireless network
Hi,

My home network with a vista behaves strange.
I've 1 Vista home premium pc, I've 1 pc winxp prof SP2 and 2 laptops with
winxp prof SP2.
My router is configured for wired and wireless network. all devices can
access internet without a problem. The strange thing is when all pc's are
connected wireless, the vista pc can not access shares on the xp machines.
The xp machines can access each other shares.

The strange thing is: when I put the xp machines on wired the vista pc can
access the xp shares.

The ip ranges for wired or wireless are the same. Firewall on/off doesn't
make a difference. Changed the NTLM settings in the registry. None helped.

Any idea or clues. I'm certain this is a setting somewhere on the wireless
config but I can not find it.

Thx

Urbain

Re: Vista Wireless network
I assume this is name resolution issue. Can you access other XP computes
using IP?

Re: Vista Wireless network

Hi, Urbain,
I have no problems accessing XP wireless with Vista wireless and vice
versa. Could be your problem is within the router settings. If you have
MAC address filtering enabled, make sure to have all and the right MAC
addresses in your LAN as well as in your WLAN settings (note the
different MAC addresses of each adapter).
The IP address of the wireless seems to have an odd high value
(198.168.0.217); in most routers that range only goes up to
198.168.0.199, so you should check whether your router has that range or
amount available and enabled. (For security reasons I have the MAC
filtering in LAN and WLAN enabled, have assigned each MAC address a
fixed IP address, and limited the amount of available IP addresses to
what I actually need.)
If you assign fixed IP addresses to your devices, you can also set your
different PCs to use these addresses right away without waiting for the
router to assign one (right mouseclick on the device in the
networkcenter, properties, select TCP/IPv4, properties).

Greetings and much luck

Hi Urbain,

This could also be a simple case of vista's automatic network types,
When connecting via a cable the network is set to "Private" network type
which allows full sharing with local pcs, when you connect via wireless
connection then vista may set to "Public" network and thus disable all
sharing. Check if you can customize the network in Network in sharing
centre to act as a "private" network
