So my problem, very simply, is that I cannot get my computers that are connected to my router to communicate.


  • If I ping a wireless computer I get no response and the Request times out
  • If I ping a computer wired to the modem directly it works fine.
  • When I ping I use the local ip for each case.

And some screenshots of different things

What OS are you using? The IP address of your server is *.2.129. What are the other specific IP addresses of the devices that are trying to communicate? Have you confirmed you are actually connected to the wireless access point? Are you getting IP addresses via DHCP or manually assigning them? – John Sep 26 '12 at 2:42

server ip: modem ip (inside): router ip: I have pinged all three using cmd.exe and have gotten a positive response. I am assigning all of the IP addresses, but I have tried both ways. – drfrev Sep 26 '12 at 3:03
I think the problem is in the router somewhere. – drfrev Sep 27 '12 at 1:43
