    HI I'm having real problems with my netwroking at home...I have 2 desktops (xp pro)and a laptop (xp home)connected through a Linksys router which is connected to my cable modem...I'm trying to set up file sharing with all 3 computers....if I bride the connections then I lose my cable net connection b/c the router has a firewall apparently. I have called linksys about this and they are no real help...can someone please tell me how to do this. without losing my internet connection. :mad:

    I pinged my ip address and did the net view thing and saw my other destop fine...but when I try and look for it on windows it doesnt even show up in the workgroup computers...like I said before if I have a bridged connection the firewall in the router will shut down my net connections
