Challenging File Sharing Problem

I have three computers networked using a router to connect to the
internet. I've had the network set up for several years and have been
able to access and share files in all directions. Recently I had to
replace my router. I now have a strange problem.

I'll name my computers A, B & C

From "A" I can access all shared resources on B & C
On "A" I have three HDs set to share. On my primary HD © I also have
My Documents set to share and have that folder (My Documents) mapped
as a network drive on computers B & C.

I can access the My Documents folder (mapped drive) on "A" from both B
& C. However I can't access any other resources on "A" from B & C. In
checking under My Network Places, "A" shows up but when I try to
access it I get a message that I'm denied access. Since I can access
My Documents, I know that sharing is set up properly and my firewall
(NIS) is allowing access to A. Just in case, I disabled the firewall
... no change.

I'm stumped and would really appreciate some good advice.

I have now gone to each computer and run the Network Wizard ... renaming my Network Group ... same problem ... all other sharing is fine.

I also went to my C drive Security Tab and unshared the drive, went back and again enabled sharing ... same problem.
