I am a bit of a newbi but i have been having troubles with my network which I have nearly fixed, I think.
I may be talking rubbish but this is what fixed it for me.
If, like me, your problem is a firewall issue then you need to make your firewall trust your router's ip address.
clik-start then clik-run then type cmd then ok. In the black window clik the space bar then type ipconfig then enter
Make a note of the ip address.
Then go into you anti-virus/firewall program and under firewall in networking you have to find the trusted site area. In there you will find a place to enter that IP address which will then teach your firewall to accept connection.
