Unhappy I can't see my other computers on my wireless network!

I made sure they are in the same work group, and I can't see them in the network! I really want to be able to do this as I often need to access files on my other computer and I can't do it! I have three computers. Two are desktops, and I have a laptop as well. One desktop is connected to the network by means of a USB wireless adaptor, and the other is connected by Ethernet cable to the modem. The laptop, of course, has built in wireless connectivity, so that is wirelessly connected. What do I need to do to be able to access computers on my network?

Thanks

Make sure you configure your software firewalls correctly.

Can you ping the machines via IP?

Have you shared you files if you are on Vista? Have you run the network wizard if you are on XP?
