Networking issue with Chromecast and Mobile devices
I have a small issue. I can't seem to get my Nexus 5 to connect to my CC when I am downstairs and the CC is upstairs. When I am downstairs I'm connected to the main router and the CC is upstairs connected to the Access Point.
The access point is networked properly as I can do everything from my laptop downstairs with no issue. If the laptop is connected to the main router (downstairs) I can share my chrome tabs with the CC upstairs. I can also view shared files of people connected to the AP (besides the point)
It seems that I cannot connect my N5 or S5 to the CC from downstairs. Mobile devices don't seem to want to view anything connected to the AP. When I try to ping the AP with my N5 I get "Destination Host unreachable" and when pining anything connected to the AP I get nothing.
Any idea on what setting is missing on the routers to allow mobile devices to see the network properly?
Edit: It seems that even being downstairs, I can't ping a computer that's hardwired to the router. But my laptop downstairs can...
Basically, from my phone I can ping anything wireless connected to the router downstairs. Even the wired desktop can't ping my phone but wireless laptop can.
