Wireless and LAN not on the same network?

    Hi,

    I tried to search and dig if this problem has been discussed here, but with no luck...

    I have a WRV54G router that is connected to a 10M wan. The WRV is acting as a gateway between fixed and wireless private lan. There are two servers and couple of workstations and laptops. The servers use fixed IP:s and the others DHCP.

    The other server is using wireless connection and the other is connected to WRVs LAN port through switch. If I ping broadcast address from both machines this is what I get:

    From lan server:
    64 bytes from 192.168.0.4: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.056 ms (lan server)
    64 bytes from 192.168.0.1: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.967 ms (WRV54G)
    64 bytes from 192.168.0.10: icmp_seq=1 ttl=60 time=11.2 ms (print server)

    From wlan server:
    64 bytes from 192.168.0.2: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.091 ms (wlan server)
    64 bytes from 192.168.0.1: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=4.69 ms (WRV54G)
    64 bytes from 192.168.0.10: icmp_seq=1 ttl=60 time=6.42 ms (print server)

    As you can see the servers don't see each other, but both can see the WRV54G and a print server that is connected to the same switch than the lan server.

    Both servers run Linux and they are not running any software firewall/NAT stuff.

    What is going on here? Can someone help me with this? I had D-Link:s DWL-900+ before Linksys and everything worked fine, but then I needed the router to connect this setup to WAN.

    What's Wireless isolation set to, under the advanced wireless settings section?

    Wireless Isolation was in "Disable". But, after I changed "CTS Protection
    Mode" to "Auto" everything runs fine now?! What is that mode for?!

    Thanks for the tip!

    Quite why that should have caused the problem you experienced I don't know :?
