Laptops can't find each other on Wifi network

Post by mister_v »

Hi,

I have a problem with my letting laptop connect with each other.
They can not see each other,
a ping test doesn't work.

However they can connect with the accespoint,
and connect with the internet.
And with a PC's on the fixed lan network.

So I don't think the problem is with the wifi.

I tried restarting the laptops, firewall off, virusscanner off.
restarting the accees point router, ...

Nothing helpes.

There can be severals reasons.

Can you ping the access-point/gateway ?
If it is the only you can ping.

It might be a setting on the access-point.

On my wifi-router, there is a setting that allow to "isolate" clients/(Laptops).
Make sure it is unchecked.
