Missing Computer


Standard Member
Hi I'm setting up a network for my dad with his laptop, desktop and wifes laptop wirelessly through their BT homehub. Everything worked fine untill it came to setting up his wifes laptop, no matter what I try it never even shows the desktop pc, the desktop can see the laptop and my dads laptop can see her laptop but none can access it. I really want to get his wifes laptop connected to the desktop because all the printers are connected through it and thats why I tried putting them on a network. Everything between my dads laptop and the desktop works fine but thats it, they are all on the same workgroup so that can't be the problem, any help will be great thanks.

EDIT: Desktop is XP and laptops are Vista, the network and sharing centre on the laptops have the same settings and are both allowing network discovery on the windows firewall.
