Connect to pc in network when router is in be

Netgear Wgr614 wireless broadband router
November 11, 2011 at 22:42:44
Specs: Windows 7
I have 2 PC's connected to router.
The router is connected to internet.

The question is how to get the PC's in the outside network into router?

if I connect 1 PC directly to internet I can find and share files with my friend pc
( my computer> network)

but when I connect Router in between I cant find any PC's(I find only my PC's) in network.
I want my friend PC who is using same internet.

When your PC is connected to the router, open a command prompt & run
nbtstat - A IP_address (External IP of your friends PC)

Do you see the net bios table?

"if I connect 1 PC directly to internet I can find and share files with my friend pc "

Exactly how are you doing that?
Just browsing the network?

Your friend in the same building as you are?

You mean the same ISP, not the same LAN.

actually guapo you would want to know each workstations ip is when the router is NOT connected.
I would assume they are both in the same ISP subnet which is why having router on the one workstation is causing a problem.

I wanted to eliminate the idea that they were both on the same LAN, as the OP said. I'm sure we both know that's 100% false.
