Can you please retry these commands:
Please goto Start --> Run --> type CMD and press OK --> Now type: nbtstat -c -- please copy/paste the results by right-clicking on the Command Prompt window, selecting 'Select All', pressing the Enter key, and then posting on this forum.

Also -- Start --> Run --> type CMD and press OK --> Now type: net view -- please copy/paste the results by right-clicking on the Command Prompt window, selecting 'Select All', pressing the Enter key, and then posting on this forum.

Can you please also do the following pings: (Start, Run, type CMD and press OK, then type the following) -- type all of these commands in the same window, one after the other, (but let each one finish before you start the next) and then you can copy/paste them all at the same time by right-clicking on the Command Prompt window, selecting 'Select All', pressing the Enter key, and then posting on this forum.

PING localhost
PING 127.0.0.1
PING JOES
PING 10.10.10.100
PING HENS
PING 10.10.10.101

Thanks,
Dan.

Please goto Start --> Programs --> Accessories --> Communications --> Network Connections --> Right click on your Local Area Connection and select Properties --> Click on the Advanced tab and then select Settings.. --> Click on the Advanced tab --> Select your Local Area Connection by clicking on it once, so that it is highlighted and then click Settings.. --> Click Add.. --> Now you need to add a whole bunch of ports, TCP and UDP, which is going to take a little while. You need to add port 135, 136, 137, 138 and 139 for TCP and UDP. This is how you have to do it:

Description of Service: ICF
Name or IP Address: 127.0.0.1
External Port: 135
Internal Port: 135
Select TCP

Now, repeat this step for all the required ports ie:
Description of Service: ICF
Name or IP Address: 127.0.0.1
External Port: 136
Internal Port: 136
Select TCP

Once you have input all of the necessary ports with TCP selected, repeat the above steps for UDP, ie:
Description of Service: ICF
Name or IP Address: 127.0.0.1
External Port: 135
Internal Port: 135
Select UDP and repeat..

You need to do this for all of your computers.

Once done, try to share files, are you able to?

If not, please open up Command Prompt, and type: nbtstat -n -- please copy/paste the results into your next reply.

Thanks,
Dan.
