I am sure this is a very simple, tedious question. Apologies.
I have a tri-band router with one 802.11g network and two 802.11ac.
My PC is connected to one 802.11ac, when I try to SSH to any device on the 802.11g I cannot connect. If I switch my PC to 802.11g, then all is well and good.
My network printer is 802.11g and similarly only works when I use the 802.11g on my PC
They all share the same 192.168.2.xx IP address range, but I cannot communicate between subnets (if that's the name).
ssh: connect to host 192.168.2.84 port 22: Connection timed out
Here is my question:
How can I communicate between 802.11ac and 802.11g within the same home network?
Can someone please point me in the right direction? Networking is all new to me. I have checked all IP addresses with ifconfig, everything is there and connectable, but obviously I am omitting something.
Edit - Router is Asus RT-AC3200
Further edit - So, all devices are connected wirelessly to the one router. Only one is 5G, the rest are 2.4G.
They all share the same address range, the 2.4G devices can only can only communicate with each other, not with the 5G device.
Surely it doesn't matter? Once the data enters the router, it should get shuttled to whichever IP it is directed to, shouldn't it?
