Problem Connecting To Network Shares (MN-500)

    I've got all my connections on the back of my MN-500 used. I've added a HUB
    which is connected to the MN-500 basestation/router via it's UPLINK
    connection on the back. As a result I am able to add more computers to get
    on the Internet. My problem is.....every computer I attach to the HUB, NOT
    the MN-500 router, can only get an IP and browse the Net and cannot view
    network shares or the network neighbourhood. If I unplug the connection from
    the HUB and connect it directly to the MN-500 router network shares works!
    Whats up with that? Anyone have any suggestions? I've tried three different
    hubs thinking it was the hub....

    See if you can access the other computers by typing in the
    ip directly. Start->run, and type:


    or whatever the local ip is of the computer you want to
    access. Does that work?

    Try pinging the other computers by IP address.

    If that doesn't work then you most likely have a software firewall
    installed on some of the computers.
