    I have three computers, two boxes and one laptop. The two boxes are on a LAN
    connected through my ActionTech DSL modem/router. My laptop is occasionally
    added into the loop by plugging it into the router.

    Once my network was set up, I could access all workgroup computers from only
    one computer. I had my tech support guy come over and he got it to work by
    turning off all firewalls. I was using Windows Firewall on one machine and
    McAfee on the one that could access other computers.

    Today, the old problem returned. After checking all of my settings, I
    discovered McAfee had turned its firewall back on, although I set it to never
    renable the firewall.

    What can I do to either stop McAfee from re-enabling the firewall or set the
    firewall so it does not reject the other workgroup computers?
