Change of router means FM Database doesn't share???


     2 months ago we replaced all our PCs to Windows 8.1 running FM 12, with a shared database on a local network.

     All Works perfectly, shared Access to FM Database, printers, internet etc etc.

     I wish to change my ISP and have their router running and providing ADSL.

     If we simply unplug our network cables from the old ADSL provider and plug them into the new ISP's router everything like shared folders, printers internet Access etc Works perfectly, as one would expect.

     The only thing that does not work - Filemaker.  The second machine that is not hosting the FM database, can attempt to Access the database that machine 1 has open.  Machine 2 sees machine 1, it is listed as the favorite host, but it CANNOT SEE THE FILE.

     Can't get my head around what could be inhibiting the file being visible on the second machine.

     Any advice would be appreciated - to me it must a setting on the router, but I can't for the life of me think or see what.
