Default networking tester.

i have four computers running from my router, three connected directly to it and one wireless. now i have set the wireless computer and the two directly wired units to network, for the main purpose of sharing the one printer. however the last of the directly wired computers refuses to network!!
when i run the wizard i get to the critical part where it searches for the network. it posts the following message:
the network configuration you have selected is not recomended ect ect.
it then goes on to say that the wizard is enabling icf, which may stop it from networking. it then fails to recognize the network!
now when i ran the wizzard on the other computers it did not post that message and set it up streight away.
any ideas?
