Just hooked a third computer up to my wireless network. It is running xp home. I can access the internet but not the shared files of the other comuters. When I click on my network places, nothing shows up. The other computers are able to access eachothers files with no problems. Can anyone help??

Go to Control Panel >Network Setup Wizard.

Enter the appropriate information and you should be good to go.

You will probably also need to configure any third party firewall software (ZoneAlarm, Norton Internet Security, etc) to see your local subnet as Trusted or Secure. Information on how to configure these programs can usually be found on the manufacturer's website.
