Are people sharing files over the internet to you or are you sharing files to them?

if you can ping the computer and the results are stable, then it is not a connectivityy issue.  
Make sure "file and print sharing... " is set in the computer you are trying to access. This can be set in the network neighborhood properties. If you can't see the computer in your network neighborhood, make sure that you both are in the same workgroup or domain (this of course is dependant on your network layout). Having NetBeui activated does help for finding the computer by name rather than ip, so this setting is highly recomended for workgroup layouts.
The folder that you are trying to get information from, make sure that it is set to sharing.  Make sure that when you click on the security tab of the properties of the folder, that you can see your user in that list.  If you dont see it, go to: control panel and into the "users and passwords" add a user for you and make sure you assign him to a group (standard is recomended for users that are going to be editing the files).  Once the user is created, go back to the security tab in the folder you are sharing and add that user to the list.  Make sure that you give him enough right so he/she can do whatever they need to do.  If you whant them to be able to access and control the sub-folders, make sure that the "Allow inheritable rights..." is selected.
