Thread: Problems with Home Wireless Network

  1. Problems with Home Wireless Network

    I am having problems with my wireless home network - BAILEY. I have a main
    computer (hereafter called MUMANDDAD or 192.168.0.3) that is used by my wife
    and I. We have a second computer (hereafer called OFFICETWO or 192.168.0.2)
    that is used by two of my children, and we have a third Mac notebook
    (MAC001EC2114102 or 192.168.0.4) that is used by my third child.

    I can ping both 192.168.0.2 and 192.168.0.4 from 192.168.0.3
    I can ping 192.168.0.4 from 192.168.0.2, but I cannot ping 192.168.0.3
    I don't know how to ping from a Mac, but as I don't think my issue has
    anything to do with the Mac, I have not ventured to find out.

    Anyway, here are Ipconfig, Netconfig and browstat files from 192.168.0.3
    (MUMANDDAD):

    I am having difficulty having the main computer (MUMANDDAD or 192.168.0.3)
    being visible to the other two computers, and would appreciate it if someone
    could offer any advice on how to get things working more smoothly.

    Many thanks.

    I would check the firewall first. For troubleshooting, you may try to start
    the main computer with clean boot.
