I'm trying to set up a new network. i've got both computers set up in the same workgroup but both are not showing up on my network. Both can access the internet but don't see each other. I'm using a linksys WRT54G router and a D-link DWL-G122 usb adapter. I've gone through everything I can think of but must be over looking something. Can anybody help? TIA!

This is almost always the cause of this issue;

Disable your firewall on both the machines.

Since you're able to surf it means that both machines are getting correct ip allocation but both are blocking each other from accessing services on both the computers.

i've disabled both firewalls. The computer with the d-link can't find itself in my network places. I get an error message that states the workgroup is not accessible on the d-link computer. What next?
