D-link DI-514 Router & DWL-122 Trouble

  1. Ok Here's the deal.
    I have a Dlink DI-514 Router (802.11)
    and a Dlink DWL-122 USB Thingy (802.11)
    (For More Details On Em Just go to Dlink.com).
    I have an Xp Pro Computer (Ethernet Direct To The Router)
    and a 98SE computer (Wireless Through DWL-122).

    I have setup all the file sharing and ext... and can get it working But......
    It only all works if my firewalls:
    (xp sp2 firewall on XP Pro Computer)
    And
    (Zone Alarm on 98SE computer)
    Are Disabled.

    I do not have and clue on how to make the firewall accept connections
    form other computers without disabling them, but i really don't want to
    do that with my broadband connection sitting there on my WAN port.

    If someone has instructions on how to do this, please post back.

    (Please Note: Router IP Is: 192.168.0.1)

    you need to configure your firewall on both systems to allow traffic from the other to get through. i've never used zone alarm but for windows xp go into your firewall settings/config window and set up exceptions and/or advanced options to allow access to/from the computers via ip address.
