I recently switched to a Belkin N150 wireless router, and I can no longer connect to other machines on my wireless network. Whenever I try to ping or ssh to another laptop on the network, it just hangs. Additionally, if I start a web server my laptop, I can't access it from any other machine (phones included). Similarly to ssh, they just hang while trying to load it.
Before this router I had an older Airport Extreme, and I did not have any issues connecting to other machines.
Why can't I connect to other machines?
Things I've tried:
- Connecting either via IP or .local
- Switching ports for the HTTP server (and using
0.0.0.0as the hostname)
- Checking the router logs to ensure that I'm hitting the correct IP's
- ssh'ing or loading the webpage on the computer serving it up (to ensure that I've got the correct port/IP address)
arp(8)'ing the other host with
arp <other ip>— I get
(incomplete)for the link layer address
arp -l -a—
(incomplete)for the other machines' link layer addresses
sudo arp -d -a— still doesn't fix it
