So, I upgraded router to latest DD-WRT firmware.

Now, for some reason, can't see my Mac Desktop from my MacBook if connected to Ethernet. Macbook has DHCP, Mac Desktop has DHCP with manual IP.

I can see the Mac Desktop if I connect via Wi-Fi, but not through ethernet.

I've released / renewed DHCP a few times, rebooted, flushed dscache, power cycled router.

  • And if you roll back to the previous version of dd-wrt firmware, is there the same problem? L.A.G.S. will bite you at some point.

  • i don't know if I can roll back. What is L.A.G.S? Jan 29, 2015 at 17:52
  • L.A.G.S. = Latest And Greatest Syndrome. Can you ping the desktop when connected via ethernet? It sounds like something is blocking mDNS (Bonjour) on the ethernet side.

  • Hi, so it seems the problem is in the DD-WRT firmare upgrade. I downgraded to a previous DD-WRT and the issue is gone. It was a matter of lan switching not working. Feb 2, 2015 at 12:18

Downgrading back to DD-WRT firmware SVN revision 23919 fixed it.
