avg free doesn't have a firewall really. sorry i can't be more help, but as you can probably tell networking isn't my strong suit and i love comodo, but it gives me fits. i use a paid version of AVG that does have a firewall, but i do all kinds of other checks, i dont rely on it just in case i run into a situation like this. maybe some one from the board with more experience with either (or better yet both) can jump in and add new juice to the ideas. only other idea i've got is a to try an adhoc, but i doubt it would work given the situation, and ipconfig release and renew likewise. good luck partna, if i think of anything else i'll throw it up here.

Success!! :)

So, I followed the instructions on the second link, did nothing. However, I noticed in the list of active connections in the LAN properties that there was a Sunbelt Firewall one connected. This was a firewall that I downloaded and tried to use previously but hung during download and wouldn't reinstall or uninstall (apparently it's a common problem). So I guess I didn't get rid of it all when I tried removing everything previously.

As soon as I uninstalled that connection I could see the router and the other computer no problem at all, I can print and do everything! Very happy.

Stupidly though I uninstalled Comodo before I did this, so now I have to reinstall it and go through the next month of configuring the blasted thing all over again, oh well, at least I'm connected! :)

Thanks heaps for your help Magical, once again Geeks to Go comes to the rescue!
