Problem acces local smb share from wif connected devicesi

Recommended Posts


i have a Xr500 with the latest firmware

wifi work fine

Qos is disable

to connect to my internet provider i use vlan 100 (don't thonk it's needed to know this but in case of...)

i  have a working linux samba server on my lan network (Debian)

when i connect to the samba server with wired devices everything work fine

when i try to connect with wifi connected devices i can't connect to the samba server

i try with another router (Wrt32x with Openwrt) and both, wired and wifi devices, can join the samba server.

i know that on the Openwrt router lan and wifi are bridged

is there something to do on the Xr500 ?

A few questions:

  1. Is the server connected directly into the XR500? What is it's IP address?
  2. Do you have a static IP setup on your wireless devices?
  3. Do you have any other routers in your setup, or is the XR500 connected directly into your modem?

Are you able to disable the vlan temporarily to see if this is the problem? Try pinging the server from a device connected wirelessly by running the command ping through the command line. Let us know if you're not sure how to do this.

One other idea - did you enable the guest network option? If you connect to this wirelessly you won't be able to access devices on the main (non-guest) network 

Also, can you access the router's interface (DumaOS) from these wireless devices?
