Problem Networking 3 PC's to share broadband connection

Problem Networking 3 PC's to share broadband connection

Problem Networking 3 PC's to share broadband connection

(OP)
First time writer to forum, so be gentle.
I have 4 PC's all running windows XP Professional that I have linked to a Belkin 4 port cable/dsl gateway router all 4 machines can access to internet, 2 can see the other pc's but cannot access them, message saying you do not have access rights pops up. The other 2 just cannot see any other machine. I have deleted and run the network setup routine in XP but to no avail. All machines have the relavent protocols. Can anyone Help ?

RE: Problem Networking 3 PC's to share broadband connection

Right-click "My Network Places" and righ-click on the Local Connection and choose properties.

Check the settings and make sure that XP's built in firewall is turned off.

Thanks for the reply, I have already disabled the built in firewall but it doesn't seem to make any difference

Do all your computers belong to the same workgroup?

Not only the same workgroup (case sensitive too), but check for user permissions.  If the user on PC1 doesn't have any rights on PC2, then logon will be denied.
