In Advanced Sharing Options, you need both Network Discovery and File and Print Sharing enabled - both on all computers.

Is that the case?

Frank, could you go to a run command and type in ncpa.cpl and hit enter. Then right click your Ethernet device and go to properties, when you scroll down to the bottom do you have "Link-Layer Topology Discovery Responder" checked (on the workstations)?
