Default Problem browsing other computers on home network

I have a simple home network consisting of 4 Desk Top computers. I’ll call
them DT1, DT2, DT3, and DT4. DT1 and DT2 are hard wired to my Netgear
cable/router gateway (model RP614) and DT3 and DT4 are wireless and are
talking to my netgear wireless access point (model WG602 which is connected
to cable/router gateway). I have a broadband internet connection and all PCs
have access.

OS overview:
DT1 WinXP Pro SP2 (my PC) w/Trend Micro internet securty
DT2 WinXP home SP2 (I use DT2 for a music server and file back-ups) w/Trend
Micro internet securty
DT3 WinXP home SP1 (daughter #1) w/Trend Micro internet securty
DT4 WinXP home SP1 (daughter #2) w/Trend Micro internet securty


I’ve been using this arrangement for about 1 year with no problems. This
last week I installed SP2 on DT1 and DT2, after the install all seemed well
until I attempted to browse the other computers on the network. I can no
longer can see the other PCs,but I can still access directories on DT2 that
I had mapped prior to the SP2 install. I read some of the other posts so I
ran ipconfig (see below) on all the PCs to help (I hope) diagnosis of my
problem. PCs are on the same workgroup. If anyone has a idea I’d love to
hear it.
