nothing in my network places

I have a wired network - 2 pcs and a laptop that work through my electricity wiring ( homeplug).

I have no problem sharing an internet connection through a gateway - this has workrd fine for some time.

Now i am trying to share the printer. All are set up to same workgroup and printer is set up for sharing.


laptop and 2nd pc show nothing in my network places

main pc shows the gateway, shareddocs file(main pc) and mydocs file(2ndpc). It doesn't show the laptop at all nor the printer....

What do I do to get this working?

Have you run the nework wizard from control panel on each machine and have all firewalls been configured to allow your network traffic?

yes - i've done the network wizard.
am trying to configure firewall at the moment with no luck...
