i'm planning to share files with other computers on my network. My brother and i configured our computers so we can send files to one another in network places. When we finished the "create a small hom/office network" My brother could see my computer and sent a file but on my computer i can't see his computer. Whats going on?

Close the browser, turn the firewall off, look in network places

Zone Alarm needs to be set for the trusted zone

Check the firewall is running

Which firewall have you got

Were both computers on when you ran network set up, did you run it on both, and are they both on now

In network places, what shows if you click view workgroup computers
