Run ipconfig/all on a wired client that works correctly and a wireless client that is experiencing the problem you described. Pay special attention to Node Type and your WINS, DHCP and DNS settings. If these settings don't match between the two computers, you may have found your problem. Otherwise, there may be a network topology routing problem. How do your wireless access points connect to your network as opposed to your wired clients? Are your access points on a different subnet connected by a router? This could be interfering with your clients if they are using WINS or broadcast name resolution.
