The computers wired to the router can't see the computers connected via WiFi and vice-versa.  It is possible to mount a shared folder as a drive in either direction, but the shares don't show up in Windows Explorer.  I think this is because the router separates the wifi and wired connections somehow.  Anyone figure out how to get around this?

This has happened to me before.  I created a folder on the desktop or each computer and labled it Desktop.  I then right clicked on the folder and enabled file sharing on the folder.  After doing so it allowed me to see the shared folder.

I was already able to see shared folders by mounting them as drives.  I wasn't able to see shared folders in Windows Explorer.  But I have figured out how, finally.  I found I had to log in from the wi-fi connected machines to the ethernet-connected machine.  So it doesn't seem that the problem was some kind of separation of the two kinds of connections by the router.
