    I have been using peer to peer networks for years, but this has me
    pulling my hair out. The senario:

    3 PC Network (2 XP Home, 1 Win 98SE)
    D-Link DSL Gateway DHCP enabled 192.168.0.1
    Netgear 4 port 10/100 hub
    DHCP enabled on all desktops
    File/printer sharing is enabled on all PC's.
    All protocolls match.

    Mike (XPH) can ping all IP's but cannot see Andy or Kyle nor access
    its resources in the OFFICE workgroup. Error msg: Unable to browse the
    network.

    Andy (XPH) can see Mike in the OFFICE workgroup but cannot ping it or
    access its resources.

    Kyle (W98) can see Mike in the OFFICE workgroup but cannot ping it or
    access its resources.

    Andy can see Kyle and access its resources and vise versa.

    Mike, Andy, and Kyle can all access the Internet. (To me rules out NIC
    problems)

    Any clues?

    Does Mike have a different subnet mask?

    Are you running a firewall I have a simlar problem when my machine uses a
    software firewall. As soon as I trun off my firewall everyone can see each
    other and share files.

    Are Andy and Kyle running Zone Alarm or other firewall that has a rule that PING is not permitted?

    What I like to do is take all three out of the workgroup and put them back in. Remove all 3 (In
    Win98, right click on Network Neighborhood/Properties/Identification---- in XP, right click MY
    COMPUTER/ Properties/ Computer Name) and bring them into a workgroup called TEMP. This will make you
    reboot.Then, do the same procedure above, and bring them all back into the OFFICE workgroup. This
    has worked ofr me on many occasions. Keep all firewall software off at this point.

    Mike can ping Andy and Kyle, but do not showup in network places. That
    would happen if Andy and Kyle did not have any shared folders. You
    could ping them, but they wouldn't showup.
