go to other computer and check this.
Right-click on "Local Area Connection" and then click on Properties.  Go to the Advanced Tab and make sure that "Protect my computer and network ... " is not checked.

Try running the network settings wizard on each computer.  Of course, make sure that they have different computer names but the same workgroup name

If you're using fixed IP-adresses, make sure they're on the same subnet.
