Ah this is an easy one, but first...

What are the applications that you are running for firewall and virus?

What type of computer do you have?

What version of XP do you have?

What type of router do you have?

Did you set this up yourself?

PLEASE FILL OUT THE REQUIRED INFORMATION WHEN NEXT POSTING

NORTON FIREWALL & ANTIVIRUS.
PENTIUM 3 - HOME COMPUTER.
WINDOWS PROFESSIONAL XP.
I DO NOT HAVE A ROUTER, I AM USING LINKSYS WIRELESS NETWORK ADAPTERS ON TWO OF THE PC'S AND AN INTERNAL NETWORK CARD ON THE OTHER ONE. THE INTERNET IS ACCESSED THROUGH MY PC.(WIRELESS ADAPTER ON THIS ONE)
I SET THIS UP MYSELF, BUT WITH A GREAT DEAL OF HELP FROM A KNOWLEDGEABLE FRIEND. I SHOULD HAVE ASKED HIM ABOUT THIS PROBLEM WHEN HE WAS HELPING ME, BUT NEVER THOUGHT AT THE TIME! DOH!
THANKS.

Hi,

The system connected directly to the internet must have the firewall installed if using a NAT like Windows' Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) or a hardware solution. The other should have an antivirus software at a minimum.
