To start off, each PC must have a unique name but must share the same workgroup (in XP this is found under Properties of My Computer, Computer Name tab, use the Change button. Then you need to set up sharing on the hard drive (or selected folders) on each PC.

I have the same problem using Netgear Wireless Router WGT624 connecting my PC & two other PCs with Netgear PCI cards WG311. I am interested in any help which can resolve this.

Once you have it all set up to share right click on the drive to share and go to sharing, the folder should then show a hand. Many do not reccommend sharing full drives for security reasons.
