Can not reach other computers on the wireless network.

  1. Hi

    I have a WRT300N V2.0 that works like it should against the internet. I

    have two computers connected by wireless to this router. They are
    assigned ip-addresses and Both can reach
    the internet.

    What I would like is to be able to run remote desktop from one to the
    other. The problem is i can not even ping one from the other. Both can
    ping the router on but i am not able to ping
    from It is almost as if when i run ping, it runs it on
    the internet instead of the local network.

    Both computers run Win XP SP2 with firewall turned OFF.

    Any ideas to what I could be doing wrong?

    It sounds like your firewall is not turned off, is it possible you are
    running another firewall, than the built in firewall? Perhaps your antivirus
    program has internet worm protection? I suggestion trying this page by MVP
    Hans-Georg Michna. Take the time to go through it and it will usually
    pinpoint the problem area(s) -
