I have 3 pcs hooked up to a wired network. When i go into network places on the main pc I'm able to see 1 other computer, pc 2 shows me another...in other words I'm not able to see all three pc's from any computers. the main pc is running 2000, the other 2 XP pro.

any suggestions?

Go to Network Neighborhood and make sure all the Workgoups are the same. Then make sure the Hardrive letter or Directories you want to see are "shared" on all computers. You won't see them until they are shared.

i'm putting all my money on 1 of 2 things:

1. WORKGROUP settings

2. IP/Subnet settings.

2 of them are on MSHOME...the other wont come up on anything. I am able to get online from all three. I can get to the printer from the first 2 pcs but not the third.

if the internet works, then your subnets are fine. Change #3 to the
same workgroup as the other 2 (MSHOME), and you should be able
to see all 3 and the printer.

right-click My Computer/Properties/Computer Name/Change. Type in
MSHOME or whatever workgroup name all the others are.
