Using Remote Assistance on Wireless

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?Q2hhcGxhaW4gRG91Zw==?=, Aug 30, 2006.

  1. Windows XP. When I try to respond to a Remote Assistance request made from a
    computer connected to a wireless router, I get the message:

    Remote Assistance connection could not be established because the remote
    host name could not be resolved. Please try again.

    I suspect that my inability to connect to the sending computer is due to the
    fact that the computer is assigned a "local" IP address like 192.168.1.x by
    the wireless router. Remote Assitance seems to work fine with computers
    connected directly to a cable modem (router) as it is then assigned a public
    IP. So, how does one effect a Remote Assistance connection to a computer
    connected via a wireless router??? Thanks for any help.
