I have two separate PCs (a desktop and a notebook):
- with exactly the same version of Windows 10,
- connected to the same home network,
where one of them (notebook, connecting via WiFi) is unable to access one of the devices (TV player) while having absolutely no problems connecting to all other devices (other PCs).
We have four devices in home network:
- a TV player, connected via a cable, with some own implementation of Linux,
- a desktop PC, connected via a cable, with Windows 10,
- a notebook PC, connected via WiFi, with Windows 10,
- a notebook PC, connected via cable, with Windows 7.
The connection problem exists only on notebook (Windows 10) --> TV player (Linux). All other PCs and devices connects to each other without any problems (to my extreme surprise there was no problem even in connecting Windows 7 to Windows 10) and can access all shares at once.
Since that problematic PC is the only one in my network that connects via WiFi1 then I expect that this is the source of my problem.
Can someone confirm this? Is there any dependency between Samba shares or Samba protocol in general and WiFi or the way how accessing devices are connected to local network?
Is there anything I can check or do to fix this problem?
1There are many other devices that connects via WiFi. But they gain no access neither to network shares nor to the home network itself. They only use it to access the Internet. So they are all probably out of equation.
