    i have 3 computers in my house. they are connected via router. two computers can see the third one, but they can't see each other. all 3 computer have windows xp professional.
    the work group has a unique name on all 3 computers.
    when i go to start->run-> name of the 2nd computer, it says: ..is not accessible.etc. logion failure etc.
    when i do that on the 2nd computer and type the name of my computer, it sees it. but it still doesn't show it in 'view workgroup computers'.
    the windows firewall is off on the 2nd computer, i use zone alarm but i shut it down, and still nothing.
    can anyone help, please?
    thanks.
