Are you running software firewalls on the machines, that will have impact(and if ytou are behind a router you don't need it). Also make sure you have set a shared folder and it's permissions

I disagree. a software firewall like Zone Alarm will stop unauthorized programs from reaching the internet which the router will not do.




Are the rigs on the same workgroup? can you right click network neighborhood and search for them by name? if found this way are they fully accesable?
