Re: Connection to shares on different subnets
I agree with Brano. One more thing though, the WLAN will now be 192.168.2.x and not 10.59.1.1. You should manually assign an IP address to the wifi router and make sure you can administer it from the LAN side.
What Brano is recommending is what I am running. The 192.168.2.x network for me is like a Guest net in that none of my personal items are there.
P.S. your original problem is the firewall is going to block all the data between the two subnets unless you explicitly allow it. So whatever protocol you want to allow, you need to open the ports for. Or just open everything between those two as a test. you can also make the firewall log any packets blocked between those two subnets and that will let you know what is not being allowed.
Also, I don't think netbios will jump across subnets by default. So I don't know how the computers will discover each other in the first place.
