Hi Sampath,

Probably something you can configure on the wireless router.  It's probably
blocking port 135 et al.

I have a similar setup, but with a wireless access point instead of a wireless
router.  If you want to give the wireless clients the same access as wired
clients, I'd stick them all on the same subnet and use the wireless router in
an 'access point' mode.

thx
