I have 3 computers (all XP-Pro) that are connected together via ehterfast cable/dsl router with 8-port switch. All of the computers can access the internet. The problem is that when I attempt to hook additional computers to the router, play LAN games or share files between the three I have....it doesn't want to work for me. I can't do anything via LAN other than share internet connection. How do I fix this?

To me it looks like Computer #1 is connected to all the computers. But since the other two computers are not connected to Computer #1 I can not share files?!?!? If so, how do I set it up in Windoze? I want to be 100% sure of what I am doing because it has taken me over 2 weeks to get the internet working on all the computers and I don't want to lose the Internet connection with the other two computers by fooling around with the Networking wizzard.Code:Computer # 3: Local Area Connection 21 Enabled Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet Local Area Conection 20 Disabled Linksys Lne 100tx Fast Ethernet
