Have just purchase a Netgear RP614 and succesfully connected to the internect. Have 3 PCs altogether. Before i just go the My Network Places and transfer files, share printer etc etc between any two PCs. That facility is not available now.

Please advise. Do I have to go to Control panel/network connection/ and setup a home or office network?.. to reconfigure my LAN?

You may have to run the network setup wizzard again to make sure everything can see everything else.

If I understand, only the central connection between the computers has changed, so I wouldn't have thought it would have made much difference. However if the new router assigns new IP addresses then this could have caused the problem. Also if this is the case, then you will probably need to reconfigure any firewalls.
