Hi, not that good at explaining things of this nature but here goes!

I have a PC (XP Home) wired to a Netgear DG834G wireless modem/router. I have set it up and regularily run 2 laptops wirelessly from it. My kids connect their laptops when they come round and all is ok.

The only thing that isn't right is one of the laptops doesn't show up on the main PC but I can see the PC from the laptop. So if I want to transfer something between the PC and that particular laptop I have to do it from the laptop. (The sharing files is ok'ed) All the other laptops I can transfer either way.

Does that make sense? If so why is this so for just the one laptop?
Windows XP Home....Netgear DG834G wireless modem/router....ISP- AOL.
