    Problem Accessing LAN using Wireless Device

    Hi All, I have a problem that needs solving.

    The setup:
    I have a D-Link DI-524 router. I have one computer connected to the wireless network broadcast from the afore mentioned router. I have one computer connected to a LAN port of the router with a Cat5. Both computers can access the internet fine. I can access the router admin page from each computer.

    The problem:
    Neither computer can ping the other. They aren't using the same workgroup (I don't think this is necessary, neh? Assume that I can't have them use the same workgroup--because I can't.) Each computer can ping (and access) all other devices connected similarly. The wired computer can access all other wired devices. The wireless computer can access all other wireless devices. No wireless device can access a wired device and vice-versa.

    Anybody have any thoughts on why this is the case or anything I can try? Thank you very much for any time you can give to the problem.

    Workgroups are irrelevant...you can have PCs in same workgroup, or different workgroups, still be able to access each other. It's really just a visual organization layer that doesn't mean much.

    Do these two problematic PCs have any 3rd party software firewalls on them? Or...is file and print sharing allowed in the XP firewall exceptions?

    When you say they can't ping each other..are you failing to get replies from netbios name or IP address?

    Thanks for your reply.

    Neither of these computers have a third party firewall.

    Or...is file and print sharing allowed in the XP firewall exceptions?
    Neither of these computers has the XP firewall enabled.

    When you say they can't ping each other..are you failing to get replies from netbios name or IP address?
    Neither using the netbios name nor the IP address suceeds.

    Nevermind guys, I figured this out, thanks. It was a stupid mistake on my part and just a simple dhcp problem.
