Hello Everyone, I believe this is my first post here on this forum and I'm pretty sure this is also the right sub-forum. If not kindly feel free to move my post.
Anyways, So I work here at a local real estate office as IT Support. I was very clear with them about my novice skills with networking and they still offered me the job. Luckily, I haven't had much trouble really doing anything. I basically set new agents up with the network printers and mapped network drives. We have windows server 2003 which i am completely new to and I have done my fair share of browsing around active directory, adding and removing users and so on. I realized that this server is strictly used as merely a file server and thats it. Which makes my job easier obviously.
So today I brought in my laptop, connected via wifi and realized I wasn't able to see other computers on the domain or map myself to the network drive. I am able to do so easily on any hard wired pc but not wif.
So I walked in the equipment closet and there are probably 4 different patch panels (which are a complete mess and confuse the hell out of me).
There is one server, a router called a sonic wall, and a modem.
I did an IPconfig from the WIFI computer and the gateway has 2 seperate addresses : 192.168.5.5, then below it is 192.168.1.1, the subnet is 255.255.255.0
I did an IPconfig from the hard wired pc and the gateway is 192.168.5.5 and the subnet is 255.255.255.0.
So, from the wifi computer, I log into the gateway via 192.168.1.1 which is a netgear router that is not physically connected to the server or patch panel and a check box next to "use router as dhcp server" is checked.
The pool for this netgear device is 192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.254.
I log into the dell sonicwall (which is much more intricate) and the pool is 192.168.5.6 - 192.168.5.254.
So, My question is, is it possible to map the network drive so both wifi and hardlined can access it?
I apologize if there isn't enough information or if something of the information is useless.
