    I would think that as well, but computers always find a way to surprise you :)
    The Mac addresses are a security option. If it is not enabled, than it won't cause any problems.
    The "command" should be entered in the address bar of windows explorer.
    Here are 2 links to forum discussions about the same problem.

    If you still can't make it work it would be a good idea to send an email to Belkin if they have any ideas. Because my knowledge of wireless LAN is limited (or non-existent)

    Yeah Ive sent one off to Belkin. They'll prolly know the answer.
    EDIT: This is what they said regarding games "If the game in hosted in your network , you will need to open the ports in Virtual servers, while if the game is in some other network you will need to open the ports under application ports"
    EDIT: I went into my Firewall > Virtual Servers and found that I can add specific games to my active worlds? Is this the game problem?

    That could very well be the problem. I also saw that the router has an UPnP option. That is also something you could test.
    I couldn't find it in the manual, but can your router create log files? If so, perhaps you check those right after you tried to access the other HDD or play a game. Also you could try to place both pc in the DMZ of your router. !DON'T! use that for normal use, since the pc will have no protection against hackers. It is just a way of determining where the problem is.

    YES! Woot! The Firewall> Virtual Servers is how you add ports for specifc games. I tried it for BF1942, turn off cable modem, and the pcs saw the game over LAN :):):):)

    Then try the stuff I suggested in services.msc. I found this is the cause of this problem for a lot of people, and it almost definetely is the cause if you have gone through Persian Immortal's XP tweaking guide
