Problems with file sharing over network

I have 2 pc's and a laptop networked together. They're on a wireless network. My one pc (w2k) is wired but my laptop (XP) and another pc (W2K) are wireless. When i first set up the network a couple of weeks ago it was fine but now i can't get them to share files. They all can use the internet and have a shared folder each, but when i try to get into the workgroup folder it says it's not accessible. My laptop can see them in my workgroup folder, but wont go any further then that. Can't open them from mapped drives either...

Help!

i suppose it is not the firewall stopping them, i had the same trouble till i reset them both.to allow the data to flow both ways.
