    Hello everyone!

    I have the following extremely irritating problem: I have a home network with 3 PC's and a wireless router. Two of the computers are connected to the router wirelessly, and the third - via wire. Everything is OK with the internet connection on all computers. The problem is I cannot make the wireless connected computers see the third computer over the network and thus have File and printer sharing. It is important, because my printers are connected to the "wired" computer and I need to have access to it via the network to be able to print.

    All three computers are on the same workgroup, the two with wireless cards see each other and communicate, but neither of them is able to see the wired PC!
    However, a ping of the wired computer is possible, but it cannot be seen in Network Neighbourhood.

    What can be the problem? It really drives me nuts!

    On the problem computer, and one of the others, please do this.

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

    Type the following two commands:

    nbtstat -n

    ipconfig /all

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
