    Zyxtel ADSL Modem
    Linksys WRT54G Router
    2 XP Computers, connected to router by cable

    I cant type \\computername to see what i shared on the computers, if i try I get error 5 (Accsess id denied). But hat is not my real problem becuse i can view the shared files if i browser directly to ex. \\computername\temp or \\computerip\temp .

    The real problem is when i try to copy i file fron one computer to the other. I only get like about 100 kB/s för some seconds and then it dropps to zero and after some time its i aborted (error: The specified network name no longer exists).

    But if i connect the cables from the computer to my real old DLink hub everyting works great and i get about 1000 kB/s and can transfer as many files I want. So the problem must be with the router. I have tried both with DHCP and static IP:s but no change. I have no firewalls active and the domain is the same on both computers.

    Tried with standard firmware and the Alchemy 1.0

    So, anyone who can help me or had the same problem ?

    Still the same problem that I only can do a filetransfer for about 2 seconds before the speed drops to zero (from at maximum ~159 kb/s).
