    Here is my situation. Wireless router with wireless extender. Two PCs with wireless USB adapters (PC1 & PC2) and one wireless laptop (LT) on the network. All computers can access the internet. In my network places PC1 and LT can see each other AND also see PC2 which is great. However PC2 cannot see PC1 or LT. Norton antivirus corporate edition is running, XP Pro and all computers have windows firewall enabled. Computers are setup as Static. Why am I have problems with PC2 when all computers seem to have the same settings? Thanks

    In your explanation it is not clear as to what computer is running Norton. Third party firewalls seems to be a big problem when setting up a home network for file and print sharing. That would be my first guess at solving your problem.

    Edit:

    Sorry, after reading again I see that Norton is anti-virus with Windows firewall running...
