When I recently replaced my router with a Belkin N1 wireless (the old one was also a Belkin wireless) the computers on my local network stopped recognizing each other (they run XP; two are wired to the router and one is wireless). They all access the internet just fine. All are in the same workgroup and all recognize the workgroup--but only see the local machine, not the other two.
I've enabled NetBIOS over TCP/IP, disabled the firewalls, double checked that file and print sharing is turned on, deleted the network and established a new one with a different name, and gone through a few Microsoft postings, all without success. Each computer will ping itself over the network but not the others.
Belkin customer support ran me through router diagnostic and firmware updates and insist the problem can't be coming from the router--and told me I was on my own.
Would anyone have other suggestions? There are no error messages. Each computer just doesn't see the others.
