Unable to connect to network devices since installing U-Verse modem

I previously had DSL and have a small home network (Windows 7-PCs) with one desktop and one laptop PC and it worked fine as far at the home network.  Since installing the U-Verse modem I can not connect to the "other PC" now and thus can't print to other pc's printer for example.  What setting in the Motorola NGT-510 will allow access to my home network pc's?  Thanks.

It's more than likely not the NVG510. When you move a WIN7 computer from one network to another (or one router to another), it will automatically set the network to "Public" which set security to max and prohibit communication to and from other computers. Open the "network and sharing" and change the network to "Home" or private.
