I have two routers which are connected in LAN to LAN setting thru a power line adapter of 1.2 GHz. I have totally three pcs connected.

Router 1 - Main router

Router 2 - Secondary router connected LAN to LAN
1. Comp2 - Windows 7 desktop - both Ethernet and WIFI
2. Comp3 - Windows 8.1 LAptop - both Ethernet and WIFI

Should not be the issue here.
1. No router firewalls.
2. All the individual machines have Norton 360 firewall for which proper trust relations have been setup.

I've heard this before.

And found firewalls to continue to work even when turned off and configured.

As such I send you back to the maker of Norton and the unknown routers.
