Within our home Windows Network, there are four computers connected and they can all see a computer and I cannot.

So just to clarify your computer that is running vista cannot see the other 4 computers that are on the same network but the other computers can see each other AND Yours?

Look through this article and be sure your settings are correct based on the this article: http://www.lytebyte.com/2008/02/01/how-to-share-files-and-folders-between-two-computers-with-vista-using-wireless-or-wired-network/
