To disable your firewall (assuming it's windows)

1. Click on Start > Control Panel
2. Click the security tab
3. Then you'll see a tab called windows firewall
4. Under it, it should say turn windows firewall on/off

Hi, i have the same issue and it isnt the firewall. But here is how to disable it if it is. Go to the router websight at 192.168.0.1 (type this directly into the browser bar at the top of your page. The password is usually password in lowercase. The username is admin. This will get you into the management screen for the router config. Look on the Left and you will see firewall. Click on this then ensure that there are no restrictions for HP.

I still have the issue with the printer so good luck.......scotty

Router is a Netgear WPN824v3. The problem I am


Chances are that the router is set to manually assign an address if it doesn't receive an IP from the DHCP server.

I would first try removing all the wireless profiles and creating them again.
Also a windows update may have broken any firewalls you currently have installed so disabling them is also a good idea, then turn back on when you get it to work.

How do I disable my DG834GT router firewall?


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.
