Strange network problem

    Im setting up a network for a friend through a WRT54GP2 Linksys router. The computer i used to configure the router is running on XP SP1 and in the network connections Dialogue under internet gateway it shows the name of the router and enabled.

    However on the other two computers after configuring the LAN appropirately, under internet gateway it shows "internet connection - disabled". This is not a problem as such because the internet does work on these computers, but certain applications cannot access the internet, specifically programs that try and use FTP services.

    Please help if possible

    is there a firewall on the computer that would prevent applications from getting out. Something like zone alarm or the win SP2 firewall? You might also try to just a soft reset of the router by pulling the power cable out and then plugging it back in. Hope that helps.
