I have several computers within the same workgroup running through my router. I have an X-Box 360 wired into the router and three computers that connect wirelessly. At work, we use Remote Desktop Connection to work on PC's throught the building. Here at home, for some strange reason, I'm unable to get the program to work. I know both the name and IP address of all the other computers. When I try getting a connection to the remote PC, the message states that the client could not connect to the remote computer. When I try to browse for a computer, nothing comes up in the list under "Workgroup". Another part of the error message states that "Remote Connections" might not be enabled.

What do I have to do to the other PC's to make this connection?

Any and all information will be greatly appreciate. Oh, all of these machines are running Windows XP Home.
