2 of three XP computers don't see each other

Panda software / Is 2011

Specs: Windows XP Home, Core2Duo E8400/2 G's
Three computers: HomeE8400, HomeSemp, and Office, all running XP Home edition. Connected to internet using a zoom x5 adsl modem/router. All running Panda IS 2011, which includes a "Network Management" feature.

From what i understand, the computers do not have to be networked for file and printer sharing since all "Network Management" allows you to do is monitor all the computers from any one of them. It tells you each computers name, IP address, MAC address and if Panda is enabled and up to date on each.

All three connect to the net okay. However....

Using Panda network management, both the HomeE8400 and the HomeSemp can see the Office computer, but not each other. Anyone have any ideas why this should be???

Never mind one and all. Problem solved. The properties tab of the LAN card, apparently,files and printer sharing must be checked even if you aren't enabling file and printer sharing. At least checking that check box solved my problem - all puters with that box checked are now seen by the other two.
