make sure you have allowed other computers to connect you. that should be on the properties of your internet connection.

Make sure that the workgroup names on all the computers are IDENTICAL and restart the computers... Also, if you have firewall software, make sure that you tell it to ALLOW/TRUST IP addresses in your lan.

the firewall is most likely the problem, I had that same problem on my network also.

It looks like the problem is the firewall, so try that. Make sure that all the connections are working etc. It looks like a simple 5 minute job.
