Default networked computers not showing up in explorer

i have several computers hardwired to a router and then to my server.

Problem: Some of the units aren't showing up in explorer. Although I could type in their names in the bar and take me to the files.

OS: All windows 7

A home group issue perhaps?

That or some are thinking it's a public network so they have discovery turned off would be my guess.

I have to agree with celegorm. It sounds like network discovery is turned off.
