The version of McAfee I have does not have the option on the manage network screen to set each computer as trusted (Is this a feature of McAfee EasyNetwork, I am not using this feature).

However, when I select 'Configure - Internet & Network - Advanced - Networks' I can set a range of IP addresses as 'Trusted', 'Public' or 'Standard'.
I have - set to 'trusted' as the router assigns computers on the network an IP address between these (usually only 1-5 in the fourth octet). I would assume this should be sufficient.

I will have access to the LAN again tomorrow and will recheck the McAfee settings then along with pinging the other computers on the network and checking the network protocol lists.

I will repost with an update then.
