It sounds like it could be a firewall problem.

Strawballs may be right.

I had a similar problem following replacement of my failing Maxtor hard drive. When I copied the hard drive to the replacement not all of the settings were replicated so I had to re-do several tasks.

One of these tasks was to go into my Firewall (Zone Alarm) and create a trusted range that encompasses the IP address for the router (192.168.123.### to 192.168.123.###). This then allows the PC to see the network computers and vice a versa.

Hope this helps.
