I have a home network set up with three computers running off a cable modem through a router. I have internet working on all three, but I cant get file sharing or printers to work even though I have them enabled it shows the little hand on the shared documents folder on all three computers, yet neither computer can "see" the documents shared in them from other computers. Is there a simple way I can correct this?

What are the operating systems used on the computers?

if it's XP, is the internet connection firewall on on any of the computers?
XP on all three, I'll check on the firewall thing

If XP pro, disable simple file sharing and make sure you have identical user accounts on all the PC's [with passwords].

For all XP machines, disable the ICF and make sure you have enabled netbios over TCP/IP

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
