I have a router that connect to the internet, and two desktop computers with Windows XP Home on both computers connected the the router and they are able to see each other's files just fine. Recently, I got a laptop with Windows XP Professional and connected it to the router. It accesses the internet perfectly fine, but for some reason, I am unable to see the other computer on the network!
Also, on the desktop computer, I can see the laptop, but I can't access it. I've tried allowing sharing on the laptop.

The main problem is just the laptop trying to see the other computers because I want it to access files and the printer.
