    Not responding to network (XP Home SP2)

    I have three Celeron PCs running Windows XP Home. They are connected through a 2Wire router/modem with BellSouth providing the DSL service. Machines 1 and 3 work without any problems and they see each other and access/edit files from one another. However, machine number 2 is a different ball game.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    What firewall are you using, each works differently?

    Have you installed SP2?
