O/S Windows XP Home:
System Suite Firewall:
I've had this router for over 6 months, and been happily connecting to the internet from a desktop and 2 laptops. My ISP is currently AOL(??) An update of AOL software was installed on Monday(13th Aug), and now I cannot access the internet. I've tried everything, disabled my Firewall, gone back to previous system checkpoints, reinstalled AOL, tried their Easy install software (that fails).
Is there something obvious that I can try
Any help greatly appreciated
Power off the following items:
Power off the router wait for five minutes.
You may have to reset the router. You shouuld have a reset button on the router some where.
After resetting the router make sure you set your security settings.
Have you tried uninstalling your firewall software and then reinstalling?
I have worked on alot of machines that had problems with AOL and I like cable or dsl better.

Check firewall settings in vista, might need to create exemptions to allow access. Check Antivirus settings in vista, might need to create exemptions. Quick test is to switch off both antivirus and firewall in order to establish connection. Also check if there is a newer wifi driver for your laptop.

Make sure you entered the same key exactly the same way in both the router and the computer. Also, make sure you have selected a Security protocol that is supported by the computer. Some versions of Windows do not support WPA. XP supports it but really doesn't like to auto detect it. If it's a HP laptop make sure you are using a communications channel other than 6. Some routers give you an option to select the channel HP computers don't like working with channel 6.
The only option for the 5th pc would be to get it wirelessly connected. You need to install a wireless adapter to your pc. Set the IP & DNS to automatically obtained from router.
You also try to adjust or temporarily disable the your firewall and other securities; Disabling Windows Firewall
Note: A firewall is designed to help protect your computer from attack by malicious users or software. Such software includes viruses that use unsolicited incoming network traffic that infects your computer. Before you disable your firewall, you must disconnect your computer from all networks, including the Internet. To disable your Windows firewall, please follow these steps:
Disable Internet Connection Firewall in Windows XP or Windows XP SP1
1. In the Control Panel, double click Network and Internet Connections. Then, click on Network Connections icon. 2. Right click on Local Area Network (LAN) Connection on which you want to disable the Internet Connection Firewall (ICF), and then click on Properties. 3. On the Advanced tab, you will see protect my computer or network check dialogue. Then, click on the Settings tab. 4. Click on OFF then OK.
Disable Windows Firewall in Windows XP SP2
1. Please click on Start, then click Run. Then, type in firewall.cpl and then click OK. 2. On the General tab, click OFF (not recommended) and then click OK. I hope this troubleshooting steps will help..if not please notify me
Disable any firewalls on the machine like Windows firewall or any other firewall like Norton, McAfe, ZoneAlarm and something like that. Or if you have firewall policies or access rules, you must enable the sharing there.
In order to resolve this concern just disable or configure your firewall and anti virus to allow the file sharing between those 2 computers and after that ping each computer if its replying but still cannot see the shared documents, do a power cycle turn off everything for 30 seconds and power them back after 30 seconds and that should make everything work....
Don't forget to rate the soluiton FIXYA thank you......
with the router connected, open Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.1.1 after you log in there is a option on the left for firewall and you can turn it off. If it were me I would use the routers firewall over a software firewall though. By the time a software firewall detects a hack, its already in the PC.
hi! i tried to remote access your modem using the serial nos. but it didn't give me anything, pls try to run system setup wizard from your computer by accessing gateway.2wire.net or homeportal/setup, once you have configured the modem with your own settings, please let me know and i'll try to open some ports for you
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.
