The router firewall only blocks connections coming from the internet.

Basically it only lets an outside IP connect to your network if you establish the connectoin FIRST.

The most common cause of not being able to see another PC on the LAN is not having the same workgroup name.

Go to Start > My Computer , right click > Properties > Computer name. Make sure all PCs have the same workgroup name.

    1 of 2 ways to do it.

    On the destination PC go to the drive or folder that is shared , right click go to sharing and security , click on permissions. In the box you should see "everyone" , if not click add and type in everyone , then in the box underneath put a check in full control.

    or on your PC open explorer go to tools > map network drive . Set the drive letter to whatever you want it to be , (usually the higher up the alphabet the better so it doesnt conflict with usb sticks and such) where it says folder, type in the computer name where the share is , you can find that in the same place the workgroup name was. , and then the share name like this.

    I have a PC named fido and a share named music.

    \\fido\music

    Put a check where it says reconnect at logon.

    There will be a little link underneath that says connect using a different user name , click that. Type in the logon for the PC with the files you are trying to access. Hit ok and it should connect.

Wifi getting connected with new linksys


You need to call Linksys again for them to help you setup the other computer. For the none-working computer, you don't need to run the setup CD for the router. All you need to do is connect to wireless network like what you did on the working laptop.

Cannot get onto internet


disable the firewall on control panel.
check all the properties boxes on the network
connections and make sure firewall is disabled.

access the router setup and make sure that VCI is set to manual
and that you enter in the settings yourself (eg: 0,38 for aol broadband). Don't leave VCI, etc on auto, the router can't handle it.

Software Firewalls and Linksys Routers


You can never have too much security, however there are some firewalls that will not work with hardware firewalls, that includes the all Linksys Routers . Keeping this in mind, some software firewall will continue working after the router is installed. If it does, it shouldn't need to remove it, because it's an extra layer of security. However if there are difficulties using the Internet with the Software firewall after installing the router, try disableing it to see if internet is accessable. If the internet works after disabling the software firewall, then remove the firewall.

WIN XP


Windows XP includes a built in firewall. By default, the firewall is enabled (turned on). In order to use your router, you must turn off the Windows XP firewall. Your router already provides a firewall for you so turning off the Windows XP firewall will not make your system any less secure. Follow the steps below to disable your Windows XP firewall: 1. Right-click on "My Network Places" on the Desktop. 2. Select "Properties" from the menu that is displayed. 3. Right-click on the Local Area Connection icon that corresponds to your network adapter. 4. Select "Properties" from the menu that is displayed. 5. Click the "Advanced" tab. 6. "Internet Connection Firewall" will have a checkmark next to it. Remove this checkmark by clicking it once. 7. Click "OK" to apply the change. Windows will ask you if you want to turn off the firewall. Click "Yes" You have now successfully disabled the Windows XP firewall. You are still protected by your router's firewall. You should now be able to access your router.
