My 13-04 works as expected when ethernet is connected, but when it's on wifi, I can't reach the machine from other machines on the network. My plan is to use it as a music player from android and windows MPD players. But the stereo I'm pairing it with doesn't have ethernet nearby.

I've seen that there are special instructions for configuring wifi to run automatically on restart, but right now, I can't get it to work even when I'm already signed in and using wifi on the desktop. SSH and MPD work perfectly when ethernet is connected, but fail when wifi is used. The firewall is disabled. Other computers on the wifi network are able to talk to each other, so it's not a problem at the network level.

Is there some special configuring I need to do to my wifi set up in order to have it accept connections from network peers?
