So you have 3 XP machines, no Active Directory, a windows 98 machine and a windows ME machine on wifi router.
They all get an address from DHCP and have outside connectivity, are in the same workgroup but the 98 and ME machines do not display the workgroup in Network Neighborhood.

START>SETTINGS>CONTROL PANEL
Double-click the Network icon
Double-click the client for Microsoft Networks
Uncheck the Log onto Microsoft Windows NT domain box
Click the OK button in the bottom right of the client for Microsoft Networks properties screen
Click the OK button in the bottom right of the Network properties screen
Restart the system when prompted
You MUST login at Windows Login prompt


If the XP machines are using Simple File Sharing, files are either shared to everyone or not shared at all, and permissions cannot be modified. In other words, a shared file should be accessible from another computer.

If the computer is not using Simple File Sharing, click the Security tab to check and modify permissions for each user accessing the folder. (In this case, if you see no options listed for sharing resources, then file sharing has not been enabled.)
