Cannot connect to WHS console through my wireless win 7 laptop! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have just reformated my Acer H340 home server. I added the WHS console to my laptop. I was connected to my router through a hard cable when setting up the WHS console. Since setting it up, I have tried to acces the WHS console through my laptop but using the wireless connection through the same router. I can open the console login, but after inserting the password and trying to connect, I get this message:

    This computer cannot connect to your home server.  Check your network connection and make sure your  home server is powered on.  If your home server has recently started up, please try again in a few minutes.

    None of these issues are the problem.  I am not sure why I can access through the network via a cable, but can't through the wireless network. Please help.

    What do you mean by that? I assume there is a WHS server there still?

    Are you using the Admin account or a User account to try to log in?
