    My network computers have disappeared in win explorer

    Win 7 Pro, Linksys router, 5 computers. 3 computers share everything and 2 computers just have a shared folder on the desktop.
    I've had my computers networked for over a year and all has been fine. When I open windows explorer they were all listed UNTIL the last windows update on 3/11/14.
    If I open network and sharing center and click on network map, all the computers are listed there BUT only 1 computer and 1 shared folder shows up when I open windows explorer.
    I tried ipconfig /renew but it didn't change anything.
    Not sure what happened because they are all listed in the network map but unavailable (not seen) to use in windows explorer like they were in the past.
    I have no problems connecting to the internet on any of them.
    Has anyone else had this problem? If so, what's the fix?
    Any and all answer's are welcome, thanks
