  1. Hey guys, I have a larger home network and I just added wifi after a long
    time of not having it.

    I added a netgear WGT624v2 to the network and it is uplinked to a netgear

    to help me explain my whole situation more easily I made a diagram (okay I
    might have gone a little overboard but it was fun :p)

    Okay, hopefully you can understand a lot about my network from the image.
    Here's the problem

    After configuring the new wifi router and having it setup as shown in the
    uplinked to the FVS via port 1 and the one computer connected to
    the WGT via port 2
    The static ip computer can connect to the internet perfectly and see/use
    other computers on the network.

    All the other wifi computers including laptop can not access the internet,
    nor can they see eachother on the workgroups and computers list.
    All the wifi computers use dhcp and their ips are like 192.168.2.x while all
    the physically connected computers are 192.168.0.x

    Now, if I take the WGT and uplink it to the FVS using the WAN port instead
    of port one, all the wifi computers can access the internet just fine
    (including one of our local webservers just fine. However, they
    can not see any computers on the network via works groups and computers.

    Just to clarify my diagram, the WGT router is given a ip from
    the FVS, in the WGT's config, under LAN IP it is set as

    Please ask me any question, I'll answer anything to the best of my ability.
    I just really want to get everything working right.

  3. Okay, so this morning, I turn everything back on.

    The laptop can now has an ip of 0.x while the desktop ones have 2.x
    The laptop can also access the web and see/access all the other hardwired

    desktop a can see desktop b and can access shared resources on b or even put
    stuff on b as well.

    desktop b can not access work groups or computers because of this error.

    [My Network Places]
    (X) networkname is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this
    network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if
    you have access permissions.

    The network path was not found.

    I don't understand why it's doing that. It is able to access the router just
    fine via and it's ip is 2.2\

    So, besides computer b not being able to see computer A or anything on the
    network (the whole work groups and computers tab brings that error so I dont
    know if it would be able to see itself) I don't know if after shutting down
    this laptop and turning it back on again will put it on the 2.x network or
    will it stay on 0.x

    All wifi computers are configured the same and all using netgear cards.

    Lastly, when I access the WGT router with either desktop and click show
    attached devices, the router does not show the laptop as being connected
