EA9500 Ping and RDP issues



I have just purchased and installed the new linksys router EA9500.  3 wired and 20 wireless connetions on it. All computers and devices have full internet connectivty, and speeds seem good for now.


However I can no longer ping any of the computers on my network. Nor can I RDP into them either.


I have looked over the settings and tried playing with the internal firewall but nothing seems to have any change.


All computers are set to use DHCP, they seem to get a connection right away. But just no ablity to cross talk on the LAN.


Does anyone know what else to try?

Disable or configure the PC firewalls to allow access on the newly detected network.

Re: EA9500 Ping and RDP issues

Hey thanks, this pointed me on the right track.


The issue was 2 fold.


I had to set the new network to trusted in Windows, and in my Non-Windows Firewall.


I thought the firewal might be the case, but I didn't explorer it because I know I didn't change any rules. When you said "New" Network that is what tipped me off to look a bit deeper.


Thanks again!
