first configure the built in firewall (and any other firewalls)
next enable NetBIOS over tcp

Create a user account "Test" on all three pcs and restart..now try...because in workgroup security model you need to create identical user accounts in all computer.

I would suggest that the difference between your work location and your home is the possiblity that you are using a central DNS server at work, whereas you are using an internet DNS server from home...  

Try connecting to your network computers by using the IP Address instead of using the Network Browser.  This will tell you a lot.  Or just connect by the Start > Run line.  \\ipaddress (OK)

Morning everyone!  :)

You could always try editing the Hosts file and adding your networked computers..  but you will have to statically assign the IP Addresses if you wish to go this way..  Just a thought.
