Can't browse domain

We have six 1131AG WAP's, lightweight, managed through a 2514 controller.  We have a Windows 2008R2SP1 domain. Wireless users can connect to the network, and log on to the domain without any apparent 'issues'. They can access domain resources. However, they cannot browse the domain in Network Neighborhood. Interestingly, they can map a drive to shares on the servers, so long as they manually type in the path. This occurs with desktops running Windows 7 Pro, 32 and 64 bit; XP Pro SP1, 32 and 64 bit; ditto for laptops. The wireless NICs vary as to manufacturer, but do include Trendnet, Intel Centrino, and Intel Pro 100/1000. If I connect any of these machines via by wire, they can access all domain resources and browse the domain in Network Neighborhood in the usual manner. So I'm thinking I have some kind of a config problem with the WAP's/controller. If anyone has any suggestions or advice, I'd appreciate it. TIA.


Re: Can't browse domain

You need to enable multicast on the wireless controller.

Make sure that broadcast forwarding is enabled.

Well now, don't I feel like the proverbial dorque! 

That worked.

Thank you, gentlemen.
