Inorder to share files between your computer's in the network,first check if you are able to ping the ip address of the other computer.This can be done by

COMP A :
If the operating system is win xp

1.Click Start --- Run --- Type cmd
2.A Black screen will appear.
3.On the black screen typein ipconfig and check for the ip address
4.The ip address will be like 192.168.x.x
5.Similarly find the ip address of the other 2 computer's

From comp A,on the black screen,typein ping ip address of comp B

Lets assume that comp B's ip is 192.168.0.3

Then typein ping 192.168.0.3

you should get 4 replies which means that you are able to communicate with the other comp's in the network

Please try this from all the three computers.Also disable any software firewalls before you try the ping command.
