r7800 wireless to wired

Hey all,


I have what seems to be a common issue. My wireless devices can ping my wired devices but the wireless devices cannot see the wired devices in windows. The wired devices however can see the wireless devices in windows. I've done some extensive reading on this and have been unable to resolve it. Is this a standing problem without a resolution? If it is I can move on.

It's a Dell laptop with a fresh install of Windows 8.1 x64. It has an intel wifi card connecting to the router with 802.11n on 2.4Ghz. The desktop is Win7 x86 and is connecting wired. It's odd. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. More often than not it doesn't. Both are set to private networks and for the private networks network discovery with automatic setup is selected along with file and printer sharing. Guest public are off/off. All networks is sharing/40or56 bit encryption/password protected sharing off. I've done this as a homegroup and not with the same results.

I was trying to find the thread that I had followed with this same issue, and found yours.


The newest firmware fixes the issue.  I had to use DD-WRT for the last 6 months due to the same problem before reverting back to stock last week.
