I'm on a small-business network with a mix of Ubuntu and Windows machines, both wired and wireless, as well as an Ubuntu fileserver (Samba), and a network printer. All these devices are on one big subnet, connected via switches to a Netgear WNDR3700.
What I'm finding is that I can always ping wired machines using hostname.local, but with machines on wireless (Ubuntu netbooks), the performance is inconsistent-- sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I can always get to them by IP, but the ping time is more like 60-100ms. Would that be over some zeroconf timeout, or is there likely another problem?
Is it likely to be an issue with the wireless router? What's my best plan of attack here?
