    Laptop with USB dongle is connected to Netgear MIMO access point. Access
    point connected to switch which is connected to wired network.
    If using wireless can access internet, but all LAN resources ie. computers
    etc are blocked.

    If I reconnect CAT5 cable, then all LAN resources available again. Could
    Windows Firewall on other wired network computers be blocking wireless
    laptop? (via access point)

    If blocking (or other reason), what could I do to resolve/configure?

  2. Hi
    My guess would be that the Access Point (AP) IP is on a different subnet
    than the wired Network and thus you have two separate Networks.
    You have to change the core IP of the AP to match the wired Network.
    E.g. If the wired Network is 192.198.x.y the IP of the AP has to be
    192.168.X.Z the first three groups 192.168.x must be the same.
