Just re-installed Vista. Computer will log onto network, see the router and allow connection to the internet but it will not see any other network resources.. workgroups, printers, or other computers. Any ideas?

Make sure your network is set to "Private" instead of "Public". This will ensure network discovery is on (that enables computers to see each other on the network).
