BEFSR81--problem with File sharing

I recently replaced my old Linksys DSL Router with a BEFSR81. I have 2 computers connected. Both computers are able to access the internet, but are unable to "see" each other on the network or to share files or printers. Both are running Windows XP and Norton Internet Security. What do I need to do?

Disable all the firewalls on the computers including the windows firewalls and then try again.

Thank you both. You were both right. I needed to run the Network Wizard, and also to adjust my firewall settings. Things now appear to be working fine
