If you are using Win 7 X64 then you might have 2 connections that have different network location profiles made based upon the address range the device hands off to your Win 7 machines ethernet card.
Ex. Your router could be set to "Public Network" and your modem could be set to "Private Network", and each network location affects your Windows Firewall settings. When your router hands off a 192 (or whatever local address & router MAC) to your ethernet card Windows will change your network location because you changed connections. This could be the problem if you chose "Public Network" when hooking up your router to your PC.
