trying to network 3 computers 2 with the same os and 1 with a different os isnt best advised.

Are you using the same nic card on all 3 computers?

Check and make sure the last computer is using the same WORKGROUP as the first two. That is located under My Network Places(right click and select the properties tab).
Also check in Internet Options. Connection>LAN settings, and check the box next to Automatically detect setting.
Let us know if this helps.
