Networking Wireless G and Wireless N
Has anyone else had this problem?
I'm running Windows 7 X64 on both laptop and desktop. On desktop I have Dell 1505 Draft N minicard. On laptop I'm using built in Wireless G. Belkin N+ router to connect them.
If I start a homegroup with router set on B/G/N, with desktop connect via N and laptop on G, the laptop cant access files on Desktop (tells me I dont have the permission) Everything has been set to allow both computers to have free access of each other.
The desktop (802.11n) can see and access laptop (802.11g) files and folders.
I have to set the router to B/G only and have both connected through 802.11g for homegroups to work seemlessly. Once I did that, there were no permission errors and it all worked great.
I tried leaving homegroups and starting new ones; messing with permissions to specifically name both computers; adding user accouts with same password etc; none of it worked.
I dont know if this is a router issue or a Windows 7 issue. It seems like it would be a router issue, with not being able to translate G signals up to N signals. I dont know. I hope they can fix it, cause now the reason (besides crazy increased range) for buying the router is no longer there (speed benefits of wireless N). Or maybe its just a setting I haven't found or a configuration I haven't thought of.
Just wondering if anyone else noticed this issue, or if anyone has managed to network different wireless technologies with no issues.
