Have you tried pinging them by IP? you need to ensure that discover is on, if on Windows 7 going to network and it should ask you if you want to enable this?

Alternatively if you want to check this is the issue just temporarily disable the firewall.

On these workstations go to Start > Network > turn on Network and File sharing.

Let us know.
