network and messenger

I have networked a lap top and a desk top pc both running xp pro.Everything works apart from the voice facility on windows messenger and msn as i have tried both.

I am using a belkin 4 port router and when I unplug this msgr works

I have followed the instructions but makes no difference. I didnt think it was anything to do with a firewall as I can use voice on yahoo msgr.
It is only the voice on msn I can not use,it transfers files ok so the two computers are communicating

would a firewall not protect where the ports are open?
