Viewing shared files on Win 7

I have a home office LAN with Netgear N300 wifi router. Among other things, I have three Win 7 computers on the LAN; call them A, B and C.
- A is wifi only,
- B is wifi and Ethernet,
- C is Ethernet only.

From C I want to be able to see shared files on A and B.
- I can see the files on A
- I can see the files on B only if Ethernet is connected. I'm not allowed access via wifi.

Any thoughts on what might be going on with respect to B?

Make sure the firewall doesn't only allow access to the ethernet. Also make sure that in the network center both LANs are set to "Work", maybe the WLAN is currently set to "Public".

That was it. I'm using Kaspersky, and the wireless was not marked as trusted.
