I have to workstations on the same workgroup, but they can't see one another.
There's 2 other computer on the same workgroup and I can see them. I can ping each of the
computers by name.

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.
