6 computers all networked on 1 Linksys wireless router w/4 port switch. All hard wired stations can see all other stations (including 2 wireless) Wireless stations can see all hardwired stations. All stations have internet access. The problem is the 2 wireless stations have decided to stop seeing each other (bitter marital troubles?) Anyone have a clue, hint, helpful web page?

Thanx

You have a firewall on either of those two wireless computers?

Can you ping each other?

Not reliably, sometimes one wil ping the other and get the packet back MOST times i get nothing. Neither have firewalls "yet", these are fresh installs I put on my network to get the bugs out before I deliver to my client. Linksys Tech support says its a Microsoft problem. I say its a router/wireless problem. I upgraded the firmware and although it made other things work better it made no difference on the 2 wireless computers.

Can the two wireless machines ping the wired machines normally or are they having problems pinging those as well?

No problems between Wireless A - to wired A,B,C,D and back to Wireless A
No problems between wireless B - to wired A,B,C,D and back to Wireless B
I can ping,remote desktop,file browse any of the LAN stations.Just can't get Wireless A and B to communicate reliably. I tried moving them apart,I tried moving them together.

Are the two machines configured as adhoc or infrastructure?
