My current setup is as follows:
- 1 Cisco E3000 Dual Band Wireless N router
- 3 Windows 7 PCs. Two of these are hooked up via ethernet, and the 3rd is using the 2.4 Ghz band on the wireless router.
Currently the PC that is using the wireless has a Intel Wifi Link 1000 BGN that only operates in the 2.4 Ghz spectrum. Initially I was able to get all 3 PCs on the same home group and was able to transfer files, etc. successfully.
However at some point this stopped working (not sure what/if anything caused this). The 2 PCs on ethernet are still able to see each other, but the PC on the wireless is unable to see anything. I cannot even ping either of the other machines. I did note as well that if I put one of the PCs that is currently on ethernet on the wireless (5Ghz) it is still able to see the other PCs. Unfortunately that PC is unable to connect to the 2.4 GHz spectrum so I am unable to test if it could see the problem PC if I had them on the same spectrum.
The 2.4 GHz wireless PC can still get to the Internet with no issues, but it is almost like I have two local area networks, one for the 2.4 GHz wireless PC and one for the other two PCs (whether they use Ethernet or the GHz)
Any thoughts on how to get the PC on the 2.4 GHz wireless back on the same network?
