Question

ALL your computers on the net have the SAME IP address?  That does not seem possible, at least internally on the network.  Having a single EXTERNAL IP address is OK.

When you opened your firewall, did you open BOTH your software firewall (Windows firewall or the one in your anitvirus software) AND the NAT firewall in your DSL modem or router?

Check to make sure the service slvoice.exe is running.

Check to make sure you are not running any other voice or audio-using applications, especially Skype.

Check to make sure that your Windows audio settings are correct, by using a player or some other audio application.

Since your other computer, on a different network, works OK, it's not your SL voice settings, but something in your computer or your network.

Your phrasing suggests you are talking to the Lindens. Most readers and responders in the forum will be other users.

Also, you haven't given us much to work with. Open the viewer and before or adter you login click Help->About and copy that information. Paste it into your OP, the edit button is hidden in Options in the upper right of you post.

IP Address

All computers having the same IP Address is not possible. You may have a router that is using NAT and presenting a single address to the Internet side. It will give individual local network IP addresses to each computer. The router then handles address and port translation.

If you have a large number of computers going through the router, you may overload the router. Low cost versions have a finite number of Internet connections that they can handle. SL uses a large number of ports per connected viewer. Viewer crashes can leave connections open. Depending on the router and how quickly one relogs after a crash connection may not have cleared. For such cases the common fix is to restart the computer and router.

Firewalls in the router or computer can interfer with an SL connection. There is a thread in this forum about handling ports in a router. See: http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Technical/SL-router-ports/qaq-p/930063. Typical firewalls will handle Second Life just by having it listed as a safe program in the firewall. However, hardware firewalls in a router may take some manual configuration.
