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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
