When telneting from a server to a client that is connected via wireless the connection is refused whereas on the same pc when connected via CAT 5 the connection it is accepted. The packet decode shows that TCP flag is getting reset on the wireless connection but the client send a SYN packet on when the PC is wired. Any ideas as to what can cause this? Thanks

That sounds like a firewall blocking incoming connections on your wireless link.
