i have 4 computers in my house. idealy i want them all connected. 1 of them is running 2 network cards and is having problems with that (that problem is posted in another thread), 2 of them are fine and can communicate over the network, and the last computer just doens't want to connect.

i was just needing some help with the last computer.

(the two working computers are referred to as computer 1 and 2, and computer 3 is the one that isn't connecting to the network)

here is some information on all of them:

Computer 1:
OS: Windows XP Pro, SP1
NIC: National Semiconductor DP83815-Based
Type: Wired

Computer 2:
OS: Windows XP Pro, SP1
NIC: NetGear FA311 Fast Ethernet Adapter
Type: Wired

Computer 3: (problem computer)
OS: Windows XP Pro, SP1
NIC: NetGear FA310TX Fast Ethernet Adapter
Type: Wired

All computers are on the same workgroup aswell.

computer 1 can ping itself and computer 2
computer 2 can ping itself and computer 1
computer 3 can only ping itself.

hopefully that will shed some light on the problem and give you a chance to help me fix it.
thx for all your help
