My Network Problems...

having searched these forums i have found no working solution to my problem, however i am sorry if this question has already been answered - i didn’t find it!

I have just installed Comodo Firewall, as has my friend on the same network.
we are both part of the same workgroup, and are both connected to the Linksys WRT54GC wireless router. when i click on the ‘view workgroup computers’ under My Network Places on the left had side it:

  1. stops responding for a time.
  2. gives this message:
    “WORKGROUP is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
    The network path was not found.”
    however if i search (F3) for computers and type in my computer name it appear and i can browse the shared folders. same for my friends computer, i can browse his files, his mine. why do i get this error message when i try and view the workgroup computers?

Thanks for your support guys, great products you offer.
i should also add i use the antivirus aswell.


Hi and welcome at the forums. (:HUG)

Can you please specify:

  1. what operating system you use?
  2. What are your network cards?
  3. Have you defined your trusted zone?
