    which netgear router are you using? What do the logs say for your connections?

    Test---

    under run: \\computer name of a pc you on your network

    open a dos session

    type: arp -a

    what does it say? Does it see the IP of the PC your connected to or now?
    Does it see your default gateway IP?

    What happens when you type: ipconfig /flushdns on the PC giving you problems not being seen on the network? does this command work or do you get an error?

    This thread is not getting solved...
    Feels like you're picking our brains for answers.

    Again what model of netgear are you using?
    What type of NIC are you using in these PC?
    Onboard, PCI? If PCI do you have spares?
    The one that doesn't see the others change the NIC?

    the Router is a Netgear RP614 V2 and I know it is old. the nic. in my computer is a Killer NIC NDIS EDGE. and to get around one not seeing the others is if I have something to share I put in a folder that is shared and then go with a computer to that folder and get it, or use the computer that got the object to put it in that computer.

    It would have been easier to troubleshoot 1 PC instead of re-configuring your entire network. Live and learn I guess ...

    Your router does not route local requests across the internet and back to your local PC's ... those class C IP addresses aren't routable on the internet anyway.

    Personally I wouldn't even use the wizard. I prefer UNC paths and mapping shared drives and so on. It's easier to UNC path to a share than browsing through Network Places.
