    I recently purchased the wrt150n to replace an old buffalo router. I have 3 wired desktops attached to it and am using 3 notebooks wirelesly. The problem I am having is as follows:
    I can get on the web with all 6 computers .

    I can ping all computers from each of the otherss.

    On the the 3 desktops all 3 show up on the network map, but none of the laptops do. I can share and print from all 3 desktops, but none of the laptops.

    on each of the laptops only the individual laptops appear in the network map.

    I would like to print and share between all 6 computers.

    I was able to do this prior to installing the Linksys router.

    I deal with networks on a daily basis in my job so I am familiar with how to set up a network and turn on print and share.

    I have spent over 10 hours on the phone with Linksys tech support ending in total frustration.

    If you can ping you should beable to ping or share via IP, why you cannot via windows i dont have a clue as i use ip to access everything. See if you cant access your machines via \\<ip>\share You can also print by ip as well.
