Where can't you see them, in the router or the workgroup?

Go into Network Properties for the interface that connects to the network and verify that "Client for Microsoft Networks" is installed and enabled.

Control Panel > View Network status and tasks -> Change Adapter settings

Right-click on the desired adapter and select Properties.

If "Client for Microsoft Networks" is not listed, click on the "Install" button and install it.

If it is already installed, make sure it's checked/enabled.

You may also want to install/enable "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks".

router has nothing to do with this. All pcs are in the lan and its only the switch in the router that comes into play in this case.

make sure NetBIOS is enabled on all pcs.
