I have a wired LAN at my house with 3 Computers and a Netgear RP614 router and a shared broadband connection through the router. Comp 1 has XP and ZoneAlarm. Comp 2 has Vista and windows firewall. Comp 3 is in my shop and has Windows ME and ZoneAlarm. All 3 have normal internet access, nothing has changed there. I haven't accessed files between computers lately, but it did work fine a couple weeks ago. I mostly use Comp 3 for streaming audio while I work on cars. Three days ago I tried to use Comp 3 to play shared audio files from comp 1. It couldn't find Comp 1 or 2. I looked in network places and the only computer listed was 3. I pinged comp 1 and it gave a normal reading (less than 2 average 0). I then pinged comp 3 from comp 1 and also got a good reading. I pinged 2 from 1 and 1 from 2 and they were normal. I checked Network places in comps 1 and 2; they saw each other but neither saw 3. I tried to share files between 1 and 2 both directions and it worked normal. I unhooked the router from the internet and then disabled ZoneAlarm in comps 1 and 3 and repeated the attempt getting the same results. No files sharing possible with 3, yet all 3 comps can ping each other.

Help. :thumbsup:
