Re: Netatalk over a wireless router?

The wireless router is probably not a "multi-protocol" router. If so, it only handles IP, not AppleTalk. Try connecting to your printers and fileservers via IP.

AppleTalk has its good points, but it's no longer under active maintenance. We just need to learn to live with it.

Hello list,

I had netatalk between my Linux file server and a Mac OS X client
working great when everything was going through an ethernet switch (all
CAT5, etc.). However, now that we upgrade to a mixed network using both
wired and wireless, the client is not able to talk to the server any

The server is still on the wired switch and the client is now on the
wireless router. The router and switch are connected using the uplink
port on the switch. This works great for sharing the internet
connection, nfs from a Linux client and even samba from the Mac OS X
client. But mounting fileshares or printing via netatalk no longer work.

The file server is running Debian Sarge and the wireless router is a
Netgear WGR614. Does anyone have some suggestions of what might cause
