Connect to Show: No Show Found

I have never been able to connect to a live show using Hog4 PC in the school environment in which the software is installed. I have tried giving the Hog4 PC computer a static IP address. I have verified that the firewall has been turned off on both the desktop that controls the lights and also the laptop that is trying to connect to the live show.
The HogNet is setup to Obtain an IP address using DHCP and the DHCP /Boot Server is set to use custom address range
The FixtureNet is also setup to obtain an IP address using DHCP
Server Settings is checked to Run Server
Show Settings is set to port number 6600

Any suggestions are much appreciated!

    Can you see the show and not connect to it?
    -Very important - make sure both consoles are the exact same version.

    Here is some more information. I am able to connect to the show when the laptop is hardwired into the network. When the laptop is wireless (on a different VLAN), the connect to running shows is grayed out. Both consoles are the same version on the same OS.

    If you are on a different vlan, then the network is behaving as expected. They need to be on the same network and same vlan for them to be able to connect. Can you ping the laptop from the desktop? How about the other way around?

    Unless you get into inter-vlan routing, you won't be able to make it work.
