    I have connected my pc and xbox using WRT54G.

    Ip address of the wireless router is:
    Ip address of the pc is:
    Ip address of the xbox is:

    Subnet mask of all the above is

    Default gateway and DNS of pc and xbox is (ie., Ip address of the wireless router). DHCP is enabled on the router.

    Both xbox and pc are able to access internet without any problem and i can access the contents of xbox from my pc by using ftp.

    I have shared some of the folders on my pc with xbox (using smb). If i turn off the firewall feature of the wireless router then i am able to access shared folders on pc from xbox successfully, but if i enable the firewall on routers then i am not able to access the folders on pc from xbox. Is there any way to allow xbox to access the folders on my pc eventhough the firewall is turned on. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Note: I am using windows 2000 and linksys firmware (i am sorry i don't know the version of the firmware, i recently bought the router).
