How to make Wireless-LAN computers and LAN computers see each other?
I have the following configuration :
1 LAN (192.168.1.x [LAN])
2 WAN networks (192.168.2.x [WAN] & 192.168.3.x [OPT1])
1 Wireless Network (192,168.4.x)
pfsense does Load balancing and failsafe between WAN & OPT1.
And LAN is connected with pfsense.
I have connected my netgear wireless router to the LAN. By this I get load balanced, failsafe internet connection of WAN & OPT1 into my wireless network.
Now my question is :
My Windows machines on wireless LAN can't access other Windows machines or printers on my pfsense LAN. (Using windows file/printer sharing)
How do I access the LAN computers from wireless LAN computers?
I did remove the firewall on my netgear router.
I must be missing some thing pretty obvious here.
I appreciate any help/suggestion.

What exactly do you mean you cannot access other windows machines?
Are you trying to access other windows-computers via the "my network places"?
This wont work since you're routing from one subnet into another.
You have to access them directly via the IP.
Thanks. Apparently I didn't know that all windows computers have to be on the same subnet to see each other's resources through "my network places".
I changed my wireless network IP addresses to be in the space of my LAN IP addresses.
Now every things works fine.
