WiFi is just another network connection. SSH doesn't care how it is connected to the network. Both my Pi-Zero and Pi3 are wireless on the same router. I have no problem connecting from my Pi3 to my Pi-Zero, or from my wireless Windows-10 or Linux computers to either wireless Pi, or from any of these wireless computers to my wired NAS.RaspISteve wrote:Guys,

There is, and some do. Usually you can disable that restriction.HawaiianPi wrote:There is no logical reason a router would not allow wireless to wireless connections. Something in your configuration is messed up.
It is very difficult to give a definitive answer because there are so many WiFi routers, but on some routers it is a configurable (security) feature called something like "Wireless Client Isolation".RaspISteve wrote:Seems most (ALL??) WiFi routers don't/won't route WiFi to/from WiFi.
Wireless Client Isolation
Enable or disable wireless client isolation.
Wireless client isolation prevents clients
connected to the access point from
communicating with each other and improves
security. Typically, this function is useful for
corporate environments or public hotspots and
can prevent brute force attacks on clients’
usernames and passwords

Which is why I said something in the configuration is messed up. Although I suppose I could have phrased it more precisely...rpdom wrote:There is, and some do. Usually you can disable that restriction...
Hi there,RaspISteve wrote:Guys,
I had a problem trying to SSH between my various Pi units. WiFi to/from a ethernet wired unit was no problem. However, it was a dead duck trying to go between two units both on the same WiFi. Seems most (ALL??) WiFi routers don't/won't route WiFi to/from WiFi. Some clever fellow here helped me with this one.
I get around it now having added a second WiFi router to my original WiFi network plus it doubles as a wired router. Note, I disabled the second router's ADSL functions and DHCP so the master router get to manage things.
