Must take personal firewall offline to see the network?

I installed a Cisco 871 router on my network as a firewall to a DSL connection with the firewall set to medium. I used the same IP range I had been using with my previous firewall and set up DHCP.

Since I made the changes, I have one user that has to take their personal firewall down to see the network. (It is Norton)

Do you have any idea why?

Probably they mucked up the rules in the norton firewall.  Look at their block rules.

I believe this has little to do with your router.. and agree with RPP that Norton is the culprit..  personally, I don't allow any of these 'security' software appliances on any of my internal clients..  always causes issues with a P2P network..   (Norton AV is okay, although I would not use it either due to many things, inlcuding its overhead..)
