    Ive got a dynamode 54mbs 802.11g router and i had to reset it the other day and now i cannot access other computers in my work group?
    I get this message
    "\\Study is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resourse.
    The network path was not found"
    I typed this in on help and support and it said something about me having to open firewall ports or something?
    I know nothing about this so could someone help me?

    the firewalls configured on the computers probably need reset to allow the new network that was created when you reset your router.

    what firewalls and OS's are on the computers?
    for windows xp firewall, running the network wizard again should do the trick. probably couldn't hurt for the others.

    I thought it was something to do with the software firewalls(windows, norton firewall) but after reinstalling windows xp on both pc's ive found out its not.

    My network is one main pc with the router connected to it through a cable and then another pc with a wireless card.

    with both computers on and connected to the router, turn off the firewalls and wait for a couple seconds. then try to access the other computer's shared folders. any luck? if so, then it is probably the software firewalls.

    also, what model of dynamode router is it?

    lastly, have you tried pinging each computer (run->type 'cmd'->type 'ping' and then the ip address of the other computer. to get the ip address click run->type 'cmd'->then type 'ipconfig'. it will be listed next to "IP Address"

    man, sounds complicated.
    if you type: http://192.168.1.1 into the internet explorer bar, then you should enter the router. from there you be able to change settings as described in the manual.
    if u can't find your manual, here's a copy: http://www.dynamode.co.uk/support/adsl_r-adsl-c4wg.html

    be sure to write down the current settings if you change them so you can change them back if need be. there are descriptions of what the settings are and what to change.

    best of luck
