I have a netgear wired router used to share the internet from a cable
modem to 4 computers.  Before this I used a regular hub a proxy server
installed on one of the computers.  The problem I am having since using
the router instead of the hub, is that I am no longer able to share
files and printers between the computers.  It seems that some sort of
security setting inside the router is keeping the computers from
connecting using windows file sharing and printer sharing.  To resolve
this I connected my hub into the router and connected all the computers
into the hub.  The router is still serving as the DHCP server and
assigns IP addresses and I'm able to share files and printers normally
now with the hub.  Is there a way around this without using the hub?

Any info is greatly appriciated!!!
