Network Difficulties

Hi, I hope you can help.

I've had my wireless network running for a while now (going through a router).

Had renamed all computers to same workgroup, shared files, set fixed IP address etc. However, almost overnight, it seems that I cannot access the files from my laptop to my second computer. Am pretty certain the problem is with the laptop as I have no problem connecting from my xbox to second computer.

Not sure what the problem is - in my network, the files I'm trying to access come up under 'unknown' source.

Any ideas much appreciated.
