On each computer that is connected to the router, go to START-->RUN and type cmd and in the new window that appears, type ipconfig. Make sure that the IP ADDRESS for each starts with 192.168.X.X, the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0 and the default gateway is 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1
Then check to make sure each computer is on the same workgroup. Right click MY COMPUTER and select PROPERTIES and click on the COMPUTER NAME tab. Check and make sure that the WORKGROUP is the same for each computer. If they are not, then click the CHANGE button on one of the computers and change the workgroup to match that of the other computer. Then click apply and ok and you will then be asked to reboot your computer to let the changes take effect, do so.
Once the computer is rebooted, double click MY NETWORK PLACES and see if you can gain access to the workgroup (by clicking VIEW WORKGROUP COMPUTERS located on the left side of the window).
Post back with how things are going.
