Read the other posts and tried everything with no success. Trying to link two desktops and a laptop all with xp sp2, through a hub. 1 desktop and the laptop can see each other but mine is invisible. Set up with network wiz and can ping each other. My pc was internet provider, we've changed this to the laptop but my pc still not there. i can connect to the internet just can't see the workgoup.
Using windows firewall and file sharing is enabled.

Any help much appreciated.
