Home network is not working

Having spent hours trying to fix it, it's time for the experts. I've set up a wireless network of 3 computers all running XP SP3 with the Network Wizard.. On computer A in 'My Network Places' I see A in Local Network and B in Internet. I don't see computer C (more later). On computer B I see B and my router in Local Network. I don't see A or C. On computer C I don't see either A, B or C in 'My network Places'. Having trawled the internet for a solution I saw that TCP/IP v6 protocol needs to be installed. Computers A and B have this but C does not. Can't install TCP/IP on computer C as I don't have a driver (yet) or an XP disc. Please advise.

  1. All PCs need the same workgroup name

2 run the network setup wizard on the main PC (the one connected) to the internet

  1. use the settings produce by the wizard (floppy / usb) on the other PCs

  2. Ensure that you have enabled "sharing" for the relevant partitions or folders and files on each PC.
