Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Looks like you’ve assigned the IP’s yourselve. Ok try allowing dhcp to give the ip address and lets see if it can work that way.

Or try this defaul:

    Can you ping the default gateway on this network? Can you ping localhost ( If the answer to these questions is NO, then you have a physical layer problem and need to check cabling and WLAN settings.

    on my router (not Dlink) there is settings that dont allow u to ping at all. not only that, you can set what you allow it to or not to ping. so do check out the settings...

    You have an IP addressing problem. They both have same subnet addresses. They should be on different subnets. I think you may have allocated them yourself, and not realised they are 2 different subnets. The wireless is most probably correct, but i think the wired desktop should be on the 192,168.0 xxx subnet. Check each pc to ensure they are getting their ip addresses from a DHCP server. Normally on the router.

    Depending on the router, the addresses could both be in the same subnet - I have a netgear myself, that assigns both wired and wireless in the same subnet. - Are the machines both using DHCP to get their addresses (highly recommended ! ). - can they both ping the gateway that gets assigned?
