No connection trough WLAN-Router to LAN

Archived from groups: alt.internet.wireless (More info?)

Hello

We have a bigger Problem in our WLAN:
As Router for the Internet-Access we use a Zyxel 652HW-Router. On this
Router we have 4 Workstation and 1 Printer which are connected with wires.
One Station is connected via Wireless (ZyAir USB B-220 Stick). Now our
Problem:

The Workstation which is connect with the AccessPoint of the Router can go
trough to the Internet, but has no connection to the other workstation or
to the printer of the LAN-Side. No Ping, no tracert going trough...nothing.
Even if i switch of the internal firewal of the zyxel.


What can i do? I want just to have access to the printer of the LAN-Side
(which is, as i mentioned above, connected directly to the router with
cable).

Any help would be great!

Thanks Thomas

    The FW on the router has nothing to do with computers being able to
    access each other on the LAN or private side of the router. If the router
    doesn't have a print server, how can you have a printer connected to the
    router that's going to be doing any printing?

    If you want to share resources between machines, then you'll need to
    enable the MS File and Print Sharing services on all machines so that
    they can communicate. If you want to print, then one of the machines must
    have the printer connected to it so that the other computers can access
    and share the printer on the computer over the LAN.

    Google is your friend if you don't know how to set up a machine on a MS
    O/S to share resources on the LAN. In addition to that, if you have FW(s)
    on the computers, then they will need to be configured properly to allow
    traffic between the machines behind the router.

    Telnet your router, search for something like Relay (I do not have mine
    handy to check the exact setting... ) in the Lan settings or near... Set
    it on On (logical, huh ?) then maybe a) restart it, de/reconnect pcs,
    ..... And that should do. No need to turn off any settings. By default,
    the zyxels consider the WLAN and the LAN as two separate entities.

    Note that you still need to have the wireless workstation in the same
    workgroup and same IP range (except that if you use the router as DHCP
    server, it will be fine...).

    Looking at the Zyxel Prestige 652HW User's Guide, it looks like you want to
    go to the Wireless LAN 802.1x/WPA screen and set Wireless Port Control to
    "No Authentication Required." I'm guessing that it's currently set to "No
    Access Allowed."
