    I have a similar problem with a $35.00 Belkin WiFi Router. The one 
way problem is caused by the Firewall and NAT in this router. I got 
connected to mine and it has a place where you can turn off both the 
Firewall and the NAT. But my Belkin is broken because I could only turn 
off the Firewall. The NAT will not turn off perhaps due to poor software 

    Try to turn both off on yours and if it works the one way will stop.
