Here is more information: I am not using DHCP. I can access the Net from both the computers. Netbios over TCP/IP is checked on both the computers. LM hosts is unchecked on both the computers.
Should I add NETbui to the network protocols on both the computers? I have added the router address in the DNS of both the computers. I can ping both the computers (from each other), and both have the same users and passwords.
If you're using static IP addressing, try creating an LMHOSTS and/or HOSTS file entry on each machine so that they can resolve the name of the other machine. Also, be sure that the two machines have the same workgroup name.
