    I have installed a linksys wireless router between my computer and my wife's computer. Mine is the master, and my wife's is the slave. I followed all the instructions. Everything is working fine, except that when my ethernet port is activated, my computer slows way down. I have added 1 GHZ of Ram, but that helps only when the network port is de-activated. I have talked to the linksys people, and they can't help me. I have also discovered that by de-activating my wife's computer mcaffee firewall, my computer speed is normal. Do you have any ideas?

    Master? Slave? If you have a router, the computers are peers, and should be configured identically as a rule. It sounds like you're trying to use ICS, which clearly has no place in the network if you have a router.

    Hi and welcome. You may want to think of a different title for the thread as well.

    Your user name, and/or name, gives no one any indication as to what your problem may be.
