Default how to find other computers connected to the same router

I have 3 computers connected to a DSL router in my office.
All 3 computers are Dell Pentium 3.
All 3 computers run Windows XP Prof.
All 3 computers are connected to the Netgear MR814v2 router by Ethernet
cables. All 3 computer's "My computer' has 'shared documents' folder and one
hard drive folder 'Common' set to share.

When I click My Network Place / Microsoft Network, I found this Network
named HOMEBASE. But when I click this network, I can only see Desktop1. I do
not see other 3 computers online.

What do I need to do to connect to all other computers?

Doug,
I check the Netgear Netgear MR814v2 router set up.
The only firewall setting is:
WAN Setup
[x] connect automatically
[ ] disable SPI Firewall.

Is this what you are talking about?

"Doug Sherman [MVP]" wrote in message

Yes, theXP firewall is designed to protect your computers - primarily from
incoming connections from the Internet. Unfortunately, this firewall will
also block communications with your internal network computers. The good
news is that your router probably includes a firewall which is just as

good
as the one in XP. If so, you don't need the XP firewall. If you want to
run a firewall on you network computers, use a third party product which

can
be easily configured to allow internal network communication with specific
computers.

Sorry, I know you addressed Doug but I have a question about your

router.
An
MR814v2 is a wireless router. I see that your connected via ethernet

cables,
is that correct? Also, you might want to try and reset the router.

There
should be a very small reset button on the back.

In the Local Area Connection properities, you should see a box that states,
"This connection uses the following items..." You should see "File and Print

Default how to find other computers connected to the same router

Without seeing this for myself AG, I am out of option now. I will tell you
this, after setting up wireless networks for a while now, I have formed an
opinion about Netgear routers -- I do not like them. I have had similar
problems with them in the past, including not allowing MS updates to come
in -- and this was from a factory router out of the box. Since then I have
always used Linksys. If you have the resources, I would give them a shot.
Sorry I could not solve the issue for you. I would love to see what happens
if you change the router. Please keep me posted on this.

In the Local Area Connection properities, you should see

states,

"File

Sorry, I know you addressed Doug but I have a

question
about
your
router.
An
MR814v2 is a wireless router. I see that your
connected
via
ethernet
cables,
is that correct? Also, you might want to try and

reset
the
router.
There
should be a very small reset button on the back.

Default how to find other computers connected to the same router

OK. I will try to talk my boss into getting a Linksys.
But I kind of doubt it because we just got whole bunch of Netgear stuff this
month.

Can you please tell me how to install "File and Printer" sharing - install
which -
Client or Protocol or Service? I could not use the XP CD disc for install?

Thank you again.

Without seeing this for myself AG, I am out of option now. I will tell you
this, after setting up wireless networks for a while now, I have formed an
opinion about Netgear routers -- I do not like them. I have had similar
problems with them in the past, including not allowing MS updates to come
in -- and this was from a factory router out of the box. Since then I have
always used Linksys. If you have the resources, I would give them a shot.
Sorry I could not solve the issue for you. I would love to see what

happens
if you change the router. Please keep me posted on this.
