Cannot ping wireless clients
Got a curious one here I can't seem to resolve.
We have lots of wireless laptops connecting using Dlink APs and WPA/TKIP/PEAP to authenticate using a Radius server.
This works fine, the laptop authenticates as the machine name, then the user authenticates and has a normal login and network environment.
However, I've noticed that I can't ping/manage/VNC/etc any of these laptops - UNTIL that laptop makes a connection to my PC (or whatever one I'm using), then I can ping/VNC/etc OK until a reboot/logout.
This is a bit frustrating and I've tried everything I can think of! Disabling the firewall makes no difference (XP SP2)
Its a bit bizarre that PC A cannot ping Laptop A until Laptop A has pinged PC A - then they will commuincate fully!
For a quick test I reset the AP/laptop back to simple WEP and everything worked,so it must be tied into the Radius/WPA security?
Check the filter settings

Make sure you are editing/viewig the correct band's settings in the partition i.e. IEEE 802.11g
we have the following settings as:
Internal Station Connection Enabled
Ethernet to WLAN Access Enabled
