Lost PCs on LAN setup

Hello
I have a home network setup using LAN I have had this working in the past but now I do not seem to be able to see the other PC on this network (there are only two). Although the LAN connection properties informs me that the connection is running I am unable to see the other computer on the home network window also if I shutdown either computer the other one tells me that the LAN connection has been lost. I have tried setting up a new home network but the file transfer window at the end of the wizard just keeps running indefinetaly. This only seems to have started since I installed the SP2 update. Any advice would be welcome.
Thanks

SP2 ships with the firewall enabled by default, have you disabled it? If not you need to.
