  1. Cannot find computer between WiFi and Ethernet


    Hello,


    We have several laptops on WiFi and several desktops on Ethernet. On all of them I have network discovery turned on for all profiles. I can access all desktops from any desktop and all laptops from any laptop but I cannot access a laptop on WiFi from a wired connection PC and vice-versa.

    We have a modem to divide all wired connections and one of them goes to a router.


    Please help me figure this out.


    Many thanks!

    :)

    WIFI Works, Ethernet won't

    OK but why?

    NOT YELLING, JUST EMPHASIZING

    Please note, I installed the new Lynksis, it worked just fine for 3-4 days on both my MACBOOK PRO when in ethernet connect and the Dell, then the ethernet just quit working for both my MacBook Pro and Dell desktop. It did work, then just quit for no apparent reason. WIFi for iPhone, iPad, Andriod Phone, and when I set to wifi for my MacBook pro all work fine.

    Detailed history: I first noticed that on my Desktop dell that is CAT5 ethernet connected to the WIFI ROuter, that it stopped, no internet access. I began to trouble shoot, and turned off my WIFI on my MAcbook and it wouldnt work either, plugged into same router but different cat5 cable. At that time, all WIFI devices still worked. I figured that it must be the ethernet side of the WIFI router, so I replaced the router with brand new one. the Lynksys N900 listed in original thread. Ethernet and everything worked just fine for 3-4 days. But then ethernet quit, but wifi still works.

    Whatever the problem, it affects both my MacBook Pro and Dell with WIN 7. I'm guessing it is NOT a computer problem, if it is it is affecting both my Mac and Dell, separate cat 5 cables to same wifi router

    To remixedcat, I don't know for sure how to check IP settings, see above post, no damage apparent to anything.

    Can't connect wifi or ethernet

    So I cant get WiFi or Ethernet to work on either of my two computers with the new Windows 10 Update. I read and try to follow the recommendations (using a work computer) about the steps to take. I love that the final step if the first suggestions didn't
    work, is to make sure you've downloaded the correct drivers. Could the engineers be more specific as to how you download drivers when you can't get on the internet.

    Thanks.

    Cannot find computer between WiFi and Ethernet

    Wifi stops working when using ethernet

    If the computer is unplugged from the ethernet, does the wifi work?
