We have five computers running off of one SBC router. Set up a network through Network Setup Wizard and all can ping each other except for two computers. States 'access is denied' though you can 'view' the indivduals in the workgroup from all of the computers that are connected but their shared documents can not be reached.

On those particualr computers you can not see any of the other computers in the workgroup, (not those that are connected nor the other computer that can't connect.)

Computers are running all are running XP Pro, (with one, that can't connect, running XP Home.) All have administrative rights. Norton's anti-virus as well, FYI.

Thank you for any help in this matter...Let me know if you need any additional information.

I don't have a computer at home, so at 5 central i'll be out. I'll be back at 8 tomorrow morn. (just so you don't think I am not appreciative of any help submitted after that time and I don't respond.)

Thanks again.

Check for firewalls on the computers that are unable to ping each other or other computers pinging them. Also, make sure the two computers are in the same work group as the other computers. I am assumming they are able to access the net?
