Gents, Sorry if this has been posted, but I have looked and could not find it anywhere. It is a basic question, but I do not know. I am trying to network two PCs together at home. Both are running Win XP professional and are fully updated with XP and bios. Both are connected to the WRT54G via cable. I have the wireless aspect of the router disconnected (for now). The WRT54G has the Sveasoft 4.0 firmware loaded. Both computers can see the internet with any problems. Both computers can see each other, but no files can be shared. VNC does not see the network. I want to eliminate the WRT54G as a possible problem. How do I open traffic between both computers? How do I allow information from the computers IP address to pass to the other computer and vice versa without being blocked (if it is being blocked by the WRT54G)? I know WinXP with SP2 could be the problem, but I want to eliminate the router as a source first. Thanks, Liver.
