WIRELESS NETWORKING NOT WORKING ON WAG54G!

Discussion in 'Linksys Official Firmware' started by jamesholley, Jul 6, 2006.

    Hello

    Hopefully somebody can help me on this as it is starting to drive me mad.

    I have a wag54g and want to wireless network one laptop and one pc. My main internet pc is hard wired to the linksys wag54g.

    I have tried to set up wireless netwoking on this, but cannot get it to work.

    I can get the wireless internet working via the linksys box from the wireless machines, but not file and print sharing.

    I have ruled out f/w's and such and can get it to run wired.

    This makes me think that the set up is good and that it is the wireless part of the linksys box which is playing up.

    Is this a known bug, or am I missing something.

    Help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    firstly your wireless connection IS working yes?

    if so, are ALL PCs using the same Workgroup or domain name?

    Hello - yes, I can access the internet via the wireless connections ok and yes the work group is all correct as it works when the pc/laptop is hard wired, hence that is why I strongly suspect the linksys box as being the problem.

    if all PC's can access the net, file sharing has nothing to do with the router.

    have you enabled shared folders on each PC so the other PCs can actually see something that is shared on another PC?

    Same with the printer. where ever the print is, it needs to be shared for other PCs to see it. the other PCs also need to have the printer software installed for to access the printer.

    OK, so if it nothing to do with the router why does the router work wired, but not wireless.

    If the files and printer were not set up to share it would not work when wired. This is not that case. The file sharing and reachability issues only occur when I change the devices from wired to wireless.

    I can ping the wireless box, but not ping through the wag54g to the other wired device, yet i do have internet access from all wired devices.

    you can ping the wireless box, but not through the router?

    I dont understand? to ping the wireless box means you are pinging the box via the wireless router, do you have another wireless router perhaps?


    so ping from wired pc to wireless pc is ok but not the other way around?

    Lets start again.

    The syptoms are

    Wireless internet works ok.

    home networking works ok when all pc's are wired.

    home networking does not work when using wireless.

    windows xp f/w's are OFF

    tested with bullgaurd f/w's OFF

    No wireless devices show as connected on linksys gui, even though two are connected.

    you are able to ping wireless devices from linksys box.

    unable to ping pc to pc across wireless network.

    able to ping pc to pc via a wired network

    hence I think the issue is that the wireless is not working properly. I know I am unable to get dhcp working across my wireless network on my wag54g.

    hmm that would indication something is not right.

    so all your wireless PCs are manually assigned IP addresses then?

    what IP addresses are you using for all of them?

    if you have an option for "AP Isolation" in Advanced Wireless, turn it off. also disable "Filter Internet NAT Redirection" in the firewall page, if it is present.

    the wag54g is assigned 192.168.1.1.

    I have dhcp working on my wired pc = 192.168.1.100 and on the two wireless devices I have 192.168.10 and .15.

    In answer to the other question, I don't have that option on the wag54g gui or on windows.

    i have tried it with all the f/w's disabled, so not sure if it is f/w related.

    192.168.10 is not a full IP address. 192.168.1.100 is

    it should be 192.168.1.100 and over.

    192.168.1.101

    192.168.1.102

    etc, etc

    ok please confirm in the Wireless devices properties, the TCP/IP properties, are both set to Obtain IP address automatically

    Sorry i meant statics ip's for the wireless devices on 192.168.1.10 and 192.168.1.15.

    I cannot run dhcp across the wireless, it does not work, hence why I run statics. I have not ticked Obtain IP address automatically because of this.

    But this is not the major issue, I can work around it, the real problem is the file share and printing.

    Could we focus why the wag54g router can ping the individual ip's .10 and .15 of the wireless devices but you are unable to ping from .10 to .15 and vice versa.

    It seems that the router is not routing for ip's across the 192.168.1.0 network, even though it has the default route in it's routing table. I think that this is the cause of the issue.

    could you goto command prompt and do

    ipconfig /all

    in one of you wireless PCs and show us the results.

    also try

    pathping 192.168.1.100

    from wireless PC and

    route print
