ok, so i have 2 comps in a network (that doesnt work) i was just wondering if anyone can help me...

first computer is windows ME, IP 192.168.0.2, this one is connected to netgear router (mr814v2) which is connected to cable modem.

The other computer is windows XP pro, IP 192.168.0.3, this one is wirelessly connected to the same netgear router above.

when i run a ping test on .0.3 i can only ping deafult gateway .0.1  ( i can't ping .0.2 nor .0.3 )
when i run a ping test on .0.2 i can ping deafult gateway .0.1 and .0.2 but not .0.3

i can access internet from both computers all through on .0.3 my connection speed is around 300 kbits/s and on .0.2 its around 2.5 mbits/s    ( my cable connection is 3mb )

Thank you in advance

Sounds like some sort of firewall
what anti ivrus are you using? some come with built in firewall
or NIS or zone alarm?
also triple check the subnet mask
should be 255.255.255.0

ok well i was playing aroung it and i did fix it, however im still having speed problems

on .0.2 its around 2.7 Mbps as it should be
on .0.3 its around 300 Kbps which is not good

i can now ping all comps from both .0.2 and .0.3 but i dont understand whats with the speed problem on .0.3

thank you
