Hi I have just installed AVG firewall on my Vista 64 machine, however now in the network folder (Start, Network) I see PC1 PC2 & Server1, but Printer & Router have dissapeared. I have ssdp enabled and uPnP enabled in services. with windows firewall they all showed up fine but with AVG firewall I can not find any way of showing the router or printer in the network folder, I have even tried allowing UPnP Device Host service file C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k LocalService and still they do not show.
