I have two PCs hooked up to a router.  Each one is listed in Network Neighborhood.  I can view the drives and printers on one computer (from both computers) but not view the drives and printers on the other (from either computer).  How do I "add" my drives to the list when "exploring" via Network Neighborhood or Windows Explorer.
