I am unable to access any of the computers on the workgroup & cant figure out why at this point. here is my setup: Zyxel CPE/router combo 24port switch WRT54g The WRT and 2 systems go through the switch to get an ip from the Zyxel. the rest of the computers go directly to the zyxel. the laptop goes wireless through the WRT to get its IP. all machines are on the same workgroup, same subnet (192.168.1.xxx) Firewall on WRT is disabled. as far as I understand, as long as all the machines are in the same workgroup & on the same subnet they should be able to see eachother, but they just arnt... the linksys is using stock firmware can anyone give me some ideas on where this is going wrong?
